Since 2003, the American Shakespeare Center has been offering Executives and other professionals with influence and initiative -- including the Federal Government, the British Embassy, universities, and private businesses such as multinational corporation International Paper -- a chance to strengthen their communication and presentation skills by way of half-day to week-long retreats at the Blackfriars Playhouse.
With ASC Actors and Education artists, participants explore the way leadership works in speeches of Shakespeare's leaders, good and bad, from Richard III to Antony to Henry V. In dynamic sessions with our skilled actors they discover the vocal and physical clues that enable and enhance their personal communication styles, and they practice those skills through the formation and presentation of challenge statements related to their own work and lives. Moreover, they play. Yes, play. Using the methods of communication and teamwork that the ASC has developed through our work with Shakespeare's rehearsal conditions, participants explore cooperative problem-solving in teams and present their work before and audience of peers.
Some words of praise for ASC Leadership Programming from prior participants:
