Shakespeare on Management
"In Shakespeare on Management" Paul Corrigan takes a fascinating look at the psychology of leadership using classic Shakespearean characters. He shows how, through his plays, Shakespeare demonstrates the different roles a leader can take and the different skills needed. He analyses the decision-making and actions of certain characters to see what can be learnt by today s managers, such as: * How Richard II s belief that having the title of King was enough became fatal; * Why Richard III s manipulative approach finally isolated him; * What made Henry V a great leader? * How Shakespeare s development of subplots directs our attention to the vital role of support staff; * What can we learn from Lear s fool about how to advise for leaders. Play after play taught 16th-century audiences lessons about how leaders organized their rise to power and how their failures precipitated their decline. In the 21st century we need to learn a great deal about how to lead and there is much that still can be learnt about leadership, power and responsibility from Shakespeare s magnificent works. The lessons are all in this unique book.
Shakespeare On Management
Long before the Harvard Business School, there was William Shakespeare William Shakespeare's vast and important contributions to literature have long been acknowledged, but his shrewd insights into business and management have been all but ignored--until now. A pithy book of wise business musings from the bard, Shakespeare On Management captures entertaining and uncannily accurate reflections on fifty-six of the most popular topics in business today, from mergers and acquisitions to office politics, power lunches to public relations. Think of Hamlet, the poignant case of too-sensitive young executive who fails to move up the corporate ladder because of his inability to make decisions. Or Julius Caesar, which at its heart is nothing of not an attempt at a hostile takeover by disgruntled stockholders. Or consider King Lear, a warning to all executives of family businesses the perils of divestiture and early retirement. Smart, thought-provoking, and astonishingly contemporary, Shakespeare On Management is truly a time-tested classic that belongs on every well-read executive's bookshelf.
The issues fueling the intricate plots of Shakespeare's four-hundred-year-old plays are the same common, yet complex issues that business leaders contend with today. And, as John Whitney and Tina Packer so convincingly demonstrate, no one but the Bard himself can penetrate the secrets of leadership with such piercing brilliance. Let him instruct you on the issues that managers face every day: Power: Richard II's fall from power can enlighten us. Trust: Draw on the experiences of King Lear and Othello. Decision: Hamlet illustrates the dos and don'ts of decision making. Action: See why Henry IV was effective and Henry VI was not. Whitney and Packer do not simply compare Shakespeare's plays with management techniques, instead they draw on their own wealth of business experience to show us how these essential Shakespearean lessons can be applied to modern-day challenges. Power Plays infuses the world of business with new life -- and plenty of drama.

For more than thirty years the solution to all Britain’s problems has been better management. As a result management schools dominate higher education and managers are at work everywhere developing ‘strategies’ and ‘systems’ and quantifying ‘outcomes’. There are now more managers on the rail network than train drivers, yet the benefits of modern management of railways, schools, hospitals and universities are elusive.This is because ‘management’ does not exist—the academic study of ‘management science’ and the assumption that there are universal management skills are bogus. This book shows how modern management practices have all but destroyed politics, education, culture and religion—modern management is the cause of our national malaise.
