There are eight big traps for leaders. King Lear stumbles into them all.

Jocelyn Davis looks at companies from Sears to J. C. Penney to Wells Fargo and sees executives making the same mistakes. What can today’s leaders learn from Shakespeare's most tangled-up king—and why do these lessons come so hard?

Jocelyn ( is an international leadership author and consultant. Her latest book, The Greats on Leadership, offers 25 centuries of leadership wisdom from history's masterminds: Shakespeare to Churchill, Machiavelli to Melville, Jane Austen to C. G. Jung, and many more. Her book will be available for sale.
