ON THE BARD

If you really want to succeed in business, study the masters: Warren Buffett, Bill Gates . . . and William Shakespeare. Yes, the Master of the Universe or so says Britain's Cranfield University, which has teamed up with Shakespeare's Old Globe Theatre and the late Laurence Olivier's son to offer courses that mine the playwright's works for advice on climbing the corporate ladder. To weather acts of betrayal, you might turn to "Julius Caesar." To learn how best to inspire your team to victory, read "Henry V." How about "A Winter's Tale" for tips on coping with mid career changes?

The Coach thinks . . . there is a message here for speakers . . . relate the stories to your audience's lives.
