Take Part in a World-Class One-Day Leadership Intensive.
For nearly 20 years, Fortune 500 companies, government entities, and industry leaders have trusted our transformational leadership program.
On Friday, August 17, 2018, for the first time ever, we invite you to join our individual Shakespeare and Leadership program. Experienced facilitators, actors, and community leaders will deepen your understanding of the skills and values vital to personal and professional success. This day-long program, grounded in Shakespeare and performance, strengthens your communication by creating and testing a personal challenge statement. Our unique program includes group interactions, workshops, and personal reflection revolving around our three core values:
Attention Through Vision
We’ll use Shakespeare’s characters as case studies for models of leadership, values, and power by studying scenes and monologues performed by professional actors.
Meaning Through Communication
Learn tools for communication, including voice and breath, eye contact, and body language. We’ll identify persistent habits and build awareness of the power of verbal and non-verbal cues, developing more effective interpersonal communication.
Trust Through Positioning
Using Shakespeare’s theater as a structure for fostering creativity, we’ll use the “sharer model” and scenes from his plays to explore status, conflict resolution, trust, and relationships.
