Hello and welcome to the 4D Human Being podcast. This episode is the first in our short series on ‘leadership from the perspective of the theatre director’. In this episode Matt from 4D is excited to be talking with the highly successful theatre director, Alex Thorpe, about his approaches to leading teams as well as drawing parallels between theatre and business leadership. Whether it’s great prep, trying new things, encouraging ‘play’, giving feedback or getting the very best out of wonderful, diverse and individual human beings … we can all apply the creative approaches of the theatre director in our leadership. Alex has directed for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Orange Tree Theatre, Soho Theatre, Finborough Theatre and Norwich Arts Centre. Enjoy the conversation and the inspiration for how you lead your own teams!
