Overview of story

Shakespeare’s psychological thriller offers us the contrasting stories of two leaders. Macbeth, corrupted by the seductive lure of power, degenerates from war hero to murderous tyrant. Malcolm, by contrast, bides his time, learning the arts of good leadership and forging the alliances necessary for him to restore enlightened rule to Scotland.

Depending on what is driving it, ambition can be vital to successful action or a catalyst for disaster. This programme focusses on courageous and insightful self-awareness and its power to create mutually supportive high-performance teams. It also looks at the shadow side –and demonstrates how awareness of this area is necessary in all groups and leads to greater dynamism trust and openness.
