Leadership Lessons from Hamlet may initially seem hard to come by
But over the past 20 years, Movers & Shakespeares has taught corporations and educational institutions crisis management using the greatest play ever written, Hamlet. The way the King handles a regime-threatening crisis, contrasted with the way Hamlet does not, furnishes solid lessons. which modern executives readily apply in their workaday world.
Plus, there's the joy of team-building, with the executive team together experiencing the world's greatest actors ever -- from Sir Laurence Olivier to Richard Burton to Derek Jacobi to Kenneth Branagh -- in ten different videos, often showing the same scenes.
This photo is of a recent session at the Aspen Institute with more than 70 executives learning lessons from, and having fun with, Hamlet. The session was a big hit -- almost as big a hit as the play, which has been at the top of the charts for 415 years.
