What play says about work: How Shakespeare's wisdom can turn modern executives into stars of the business stage.
William Shakespeare could spin a good tale. His language is beautiful (if daunting) and speaks directly to our hopes, passions, and fears. That's why he's been at the top of the charts for 400 years.
Shakespeare is the perfect platform for engaged and active learning. His plays are compelling stories, and people learn better through narrative than PowerPoint. His characters show brilliant insight into human nature, and success hinges upon knowing what makes people tick. And perhaps more than anything, he knew the act of putting on a play meant building teams — pulling people together to have fun while getting things done.
