Inspirational Leadership by Richard Olivier
Book Description"ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH, DEAR FRIENDS, ONCE MORE" Henry V is Shakespeare's greatest leader - inspired and inspiring, visionary yet pragmatic, powerful yet responsible. Of all Shakespeare's stories, it offers us the deepest insights into the nature of inspiration. A new king unites a group of disparate and warring people around a common goal, overcoming all obstacles in his path on the way to achieving a near miraculous victory against all odds. It's an allegory for the trials and tribulations that beset the modern business leader. In this fascinating book, acclaimed stage director and creative consultant Richard Olivier draws on his intimate knowledge of the play, and its absorbing central character, to unmask the secrets of inspirational leadership and reveal the timeless lessons it hold for managers and leaders today. With unique practical understanding gained from working with real-life managers and leaders on this seminal text, Olivier successfully combines ancient wisdom with modern experience. Following the journey of the play, he tracks the development of Henry as a leader, offering timeless insights into the psychology, skills and techniques of effective, inspirational leadership.
