Shakespeare and Reputation

SandersLater this spring, Hill & Knowlton will publish an article by me in its global magazine -- Ampersand -- on what we can learn from Shakespeare about reputation management, leadership and responsible conduct. As a sort of teaser, here are some of the well-known lines that I take a look at in the piece:

"Nothing can come of nothing: speak again." (King Lear)

"O, I have lost my reputation! I have lost the immortal part of myself, and what remains is bestial. My reputation, Iago, my reputation!" (Othello)

"Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em." (Twelfth Night)

"A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!" (King Richard III)
