Influential Leadership: Power & Politics within organisations - Lessons from Julius Caesar

June 2017 | Cass Business School

Following the success of the Inspirational Leadership: Henry V - fit to lead? workshop, Cass CCE and Olivier Mythodrama came together again to deliver a second workshop, based on Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.

Using influence effectively is a key attribute of the wise leader. This workshop was focused on the practical application of influence within the increasing complexity of organisational life. It answered the question:

"How do I influence colleagues and lead the direction of my organisation?"

Drawing lessons from four diverse leaders in Shakespeare’s political masterpiece – Caesar, Brutus, Cassius and Mark Anthony – we explore the nature of politics, ensuring participants have the knowledge to operate effectively within organisational power structures.

This learning draws from the following areas:

  • The nature and elements of power and politics in organisational life
  • Understanding political intelligence and building a coalition
  • Mobilising support and using power effectively
  • Influencing elements and skills
  • Emotional intelligence and moral development
  • Consequences and legacy
  • Building a personal stakeholder influencing plan of action

  • The building blocks needed to be fit to serve as an inspiring and outstanding leader
  • Personal resilience and methods to build on their strengths
  • Techniques to deal with stress and mental pressures
  • Consideration of a personal plan to help be best prepared as leaders to serve their teams and other stakeholders
  • How to spot the signs of stress in our team colleagues and ways in which we can support them
  • Fresh ways to approach leadership and learn from others in the group about what it takes to become inspirational
