Leadership Lessons from Shakespeare’s Henry V
Facilitator: Michael Boyle & Jane Jones
The story of Shakespeare’s most purpose-led and inspiring leader, Henry V, provides a metaphor for leaders of all kinds to evaluate themselves and review their projects, both large and small. Henry must step into a new role, gather a diverse team together, agree on the enterprise and then overcome significant difficulties on the journey towards a significant victory against the odds. We highlight themes of purpose, vision, motivation, and inspiration in a highly interactive and experiential programme.

Whatever the nature of your leadership task, a community-based project or an organisational goal, if you are unsure what inspires you, it will be almost impossible to inspire anyone else to follow you. This programme focuses on what it means to be an inspirational leader and how to become one through a deeper understanding of your own sense of purpose, effective communication of your vision, and motivation of others. Through Shakespeare’s story of Henry V, participants will explore the leadership challenges most relevant to them, gain insight into their current leadership style and rehearse new ways of being. Using a unique mixture of storytelling, leadership development theory, archetypal characteristics, coaching and techniques from theatre, the programme creates impactful, insightful and practical experiential learning that supports leaders of all types to inspire others.
