You don't have to be a fan of The Tudors or a history buff to appreciate the lessons they teach on what it means to be a leader, a manager or a coach.
What better way to learn about these important roles than peruse history with the help of an entertaining TV show? The Tudors, which won many critical acclaims, also caused some controversy not only for taking liberty with historical facts but also for its somewhat raw depiction of romance and violence. However, I feel that its lessons for the business world are priceless.
An important note: If you watch only one video clip, please make it a point to watch the one halfway down the page called "The King and His Fool." In my opinion, it constitutes the pivotal moment in the whole series and certainly of this article. (Update on February 16, 2013: Unfortunately, it seems that Youtube has taken this particular clip down. I am looking for a replacement. If you have access to the series, however, you will find it in Season 3, Episode 5 at 25:13. I know for sure that it's available on NetFlix Streaming but could also be available through other streaming services.)
