Description

Henry V is Shakespeare's greatest leader inspired and inspiring, visionary yet pragmatic, powerful yet responsible. As a study of an inspirational leader he remains unparalleled. As a new king, Henry unites a group of disparate people around a common goal, learns to face his own self-doubts, and inspires his followers to 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 holds 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.
