Drawing comparisons between consultancy and the classical tragedy, King Lear, the author explores the core theme of responsibility.

Erik de Haan is a Senior Organisation Development Consultant at Ashridge Consulting. He specialises in the interpersonal and dramatic aspects of working in groups and organisations. He has worked as a trainer and consultant for different firms in the Netherlands.
