Shakespeare has many plays involving leaders, but the story of Julius Caesar has become legendary. Very early on, the consequences of a leader who has gained too much power is shown. At this point, I would introduce students to the conversation with Lao Tzu on Leadership. This would be a great opportunity for students to theorize that if Caesar followed the suggestions of the people around him, maybe the outcome of his story be different.
