Who knew that Beltway power couple Ken and Carol Adelman — he a former U.N. ambassador, she a former U.S. AID official, who hobnob in Georgetown and Aspen and Davos – have a lucrative sideline teaching management and leadership? They do! Their hook, reports our colleague Thomas Heath, is that they show the business community how to draw lessons from Shakespeare. Hamlet’s “to be or not to be” angst? A textbook example of crisis management. And the story of Julius Caesar — “a case study in how to execute a takeover” — is one George W. Bush should have read before the second Iraq War, the Adelmans say. Guess how much they earn with a mere 15 to 20 gigs a year? Oh, go read the story: Value Added: They teach business lessons courtesy of the Bard.
