In this article, the writer notes that the great, rallying speech William Shakespeare's Henry V makes to his English troops before the decisive battle of Agincourt contains some of Shakespeare's greatest heroic poetry. The writer points out that the great king Henry V in the play and later in the movie based upon Shakespeare's play becomes one of the common soldiers, and also, in his rhetoric elevates the common soldiers to the level of a king. The writer discusses that this form of motivation by teaching leadership, and showing a personal interest in others is not only applicable to a medieval scene of battle, but also to today's organizations, according to the 'Leadership Engine' by Noel M. Tichy. The writer maintains that Tichy's writings are especially applicable to "Henry V" because Tichy suggests that more so than a specific cause, fostering leadership and confidence in leadership is important.
