From the Publisher:

Shakespeare’s plays, such as Henry V, are regularly used to explore leadership. Role-play has been used for years as a core tool in teaching and learning. Managers of today’s corporate ‘star’ talent often draw from techniques found most often in the entertainment industry, which has mastered the art of managing stars. And what major sales conference or shareholder’s meeting would be complete without the benefit of stage setting, lights, and music?

DRAMATIC SUCCESS! is a first-of-its kind toolkit that shows how to apply the best of the theatre to dramatically improve the performance of individuals, teams, and the organization. Much more than a ‘presentation’ skills book or new ways to "think on your feet," readers will learn how to use a variety of tools from this eclectic art form to create rich and entertaining experiences in every workplace interaction.

About the Author:

Andrew Leigh and Michael Maynard are senior partners in Maynard Leigh Associates, a training and development consulting firm that works with corporations around the world in personal effectiveness and team development. They are also the authors of Leading Your Team, The Perfect Presentation and Ace Teams.
