The Tools of Directing
Leadership is constructed through a specific use of a set of linguistic and non-linguistic signs.
The keynote examines the control of actions through language. Taking our starting point from literary texts like Shakespeare’s stage directions or the script to a film like Gone with the Wind (1939) we highlight the directional practices’ fundamental dependence on language.
The question is how to understand and use language as a tool with the transformational power to create different scenarios and outcomes.
