I came across this article last week, and didn’t have a chance to share it with you until now (writing blog posts after work is hard during Chanukkah — so many candles to light, latkes to eat, so little time…)
Over at Bloomberg Business they write about many things I know I ought to take a deeper interest in. Such as economy and business. But most of the time, it is simply not appealing to me. Then this happened: Shakespeare in the Boardroom (Nov 29, 2012)
“Olivier said, ‘If you’re leading a major change, you have to be willing to change yourself. You might have to be willing to die for it.’ ” McFarland was stunned. He felt the weight of his job—tens of thousands of employees’ lives and careers depended on his success. He had no idea that working for the IRS could be like The Tempest.
I can deal with that: Talking corporate strategies using Shakespeare plays as reference. Happy reading….
