Leadership Movies
Films with a
Leadership Theme

This section Leadership Movies lists and talks about various movies that you can use to illustrate leadership in action. You can use them to learn about good leadership principles or use them as supplement for your leadership training.

Sometimes a leadership movie can teach you much more than most books can.

I believe that there have been times where you watched a movie, and its impact on you was so great you spent the next few hours thinking about the movie.

It doesn’t happen with books on business or leadership as much. I’m sure that there will be some things that will touch you, but most probably never to the effect of what a movie can do.

This is because while theories speak to our heads, it’s stories that speak to our hearts.

We understand theories, but we experience stories.

This section identifies great leadership movies that you can watch, or engage your team to watch and gain deep insights.

One suggestion I have for you to use these resources is to get your team to watch the movie with you and after that, sit down together to share your insights from the video or film.

It’ll be a great learning experience.

I have only skimmed over the website and the e-book so far, but what I've read was surprisingly deep for a non-commercial and easily accessible product.
