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. Malcom, 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 a spur to successful action or a catalyst for disaster. This programme focuses on ethical leadership and its power to charge an enterprise with meaning and purpose. It also looks at the shadow side – the perils of unchecked ambition – while exploring the remedies available to organisations that have lost their way.
It helps unearth the hidden motives that will determine which outcome ensues. It provides tools for dealing with dangerous behaviour that could derail an enterprise, while demonstrating how leading with ethical integrity motivates and inspires.
