He shows how, through his plays, Shakespeare demonstrates the different roles a leader can take and the different skills needed. He analyses the decision-making and actions of certain characters to see what can be learnt by today s managers, such as: * How Richard II s belief that having the title of King was enough became fatal- * Why Richard III s manipulative approach finally isolated him- * What made Henry V a great leader? * How Shakespeare s development of subplots directs our attention to the vital role of support staff- * What can we learn from Lear s fool about how to advise for leaders. Play after play taught 16th-century audiences lessons about how leaders organized their rise to power and how their failures precipitated their decline. In the 21st century we need to learn a great deal about how to lead and there is much that still can be learnt about leadership, power and responsibility from Shakespeare s magnificent works. The lessons are all in this unique book.
