Time for Leadership

Lion as leader

Leadership in Fiction

What makes a great leader?

In difficult times, we look to our leaders to guide us to safety and security.

Wow, do we ever need good leaders in 2020!

Writing about leadership

A few days ago, I featured on the Hist Fic Chic website. I wrote a guest post about leadership in fiction.

This is something I studied for my PhD. At that time, I was looking at how leaders are portrayed in World War I fiction. In this post I summarised the heroes of Shakespeare’s tragedies. Leadership is a topic that has intrigued us down the ages.

What about Shakespeare?

To see my take on King Lear, Macbeth, Henry V and co, please visit this blog:
