Power Plays: Shakespeare’s Lessons in Leadership and Management, by John Whitney and Tina Packer, Simon & Schuster, New York City, $25.50

Corporations can learn a lot from the Bard, insist authors John Whitney, a Columbia Business School professor and former president of Pathmark Supermarkets, and Tina Packer, founder of the theater group Shakespeare & Company. The duo uses the intricate plots in Hamlet, Othello, King Lear and Henry IV to highlight the elements of leadership: effective communication, decision-making and intuition.
