Leadership lessons from Henry V

Overview of story

Henry V provides a template for leaders to evaluate themselves and examine their big projects. Henry must step into a new role, gather a diverse team together, agree on a big project and then overcome significant difficulties on the journey towards a great victory against the odds. We highlight themes of purpose, vision, motivation and inspiration in a highly interactive and experiential programme. If you don’t know what inspires you, it will be almost impossible to inspire anyone else. Participants are introduced to an overview of the story and then explore the leadership challenges most relevant to them.

The object of the exercise is not simply to teach participants to mimic Henry, we seek to draw out your personal leadership styles and identify how these may impact those around you both positively and negatively. We then encourage you to explore ways of developing your emotional intelligence to unleash your motivational abilities and build meaningful and lasting relationships.
