We use the stories of Shakespeare as a medium through which to explore current leadership challenges and future initiatives. Discussions are facilitated around relevant live issues and are then related to the leadership challenges that are evident in the play.
Our leadership programmes are adaptable and can be delivered in the way that works best for you, whether that's online or face to face.

What to Expect
Depending on the length of programme, participants will experience a variety of methods. We will work together to examine the story and for large group exercises. For programmes running over 2 or more days, we'll break out into small coaching groups.
Presenters use the story to explore current leadership challenges and future initiatives. Participants are asked to identify topics in the programme content that hold the most relevance for them, then relate these to the leadership challenges that become evident in the play.
During coaching sessions, we encourage dialogue between individuals and groups, from which emerge the deep solutions to systemic problems, which cannot be addressed by logic alone. Instead of shutting down the symptoms for a while, our process creates the necessary safe space in which to bring root causes to the surface, where they can be addressed fully.
Our programmes come in a variety of formats depending on the length of programme you choose.
- Keynote Speech – Our 60 - 90 minute keynotes introduce our programmes and feature a number of contemporary leadership themes underpinned by one of Shakespeare’s great stories.
- Single Day Format (One or Half Day sessions) – These sessions allow participants to experience a classic Shakespeare story, while addressing up-to-the-minute and relevant leadership challenges.
- Sustained long-term interventions – These longer programmes are for groups of senior leaders responsible for engaging with the wider organisation and who are tasked with addressing systemic issues.
Sometimes organisational challenges don’t fit neatly into a single story or are defined by a clear group of development needs.
All our programmes have the flexibility to be tailored to contain elements from multiple Shakespeare stories, archetypes psychology, coaching and experiential exercise. We are also able to bring in additional expertise from our partners if further methodologies are needed.
Each programme can be flexible in length depending on the depth you require or how immersive an experience you wish to undertake.
This has had a profound impact on me and my leadership – the best insights I’ve had for years.
