The piece asserts that business and political leaders hit their heights when they create effective characters to present to people. It then looks at how Shakespearean plays like Henry V and Richard III are taught in leadership courses,. The author indulges in the obvious: a trip to acting school in England.
All in all, a good read, and an intriguing argument that the best leaders may also be the best actors.
What do you think? Does 'fake it 'til you make it' work?
