Lessons in Leadership from the World of the Stage

management-by-shakespeare (mbys) is our innovative method of executive training – power of presence

We provide a new stage for your experience: while working with methods of the theatre, we
focus on perspectives of collaboration and leadership. The art of acting does not require that
you put on a role you cannot identify with but enables you to play the part in your life you
always wanted.

Our programs have been created to strengthen executive personalities and to provide true
authenticity in your leadership personality.

Our program is designed to support you.

Our Concept

We teach all our programs with creative methods from the world of theatre and transfer them
from the stage to your daily work life.



Performance, Communication and Leadership are key elements of success – in life as on the


Team Time

As theatre is a collaborative art form, our creative programs also give essential hands-on
experience in the Art of Directing and Teambuilding.


The world of theatre displays some of the best and worst role models for leadership.
Experience and learn from Shakespeare’s kings and queens.


Who we are

Inspired by and enthusiastic about the idea to bring theatre strategies to the executive world,
we developed the training program of management-by-shakespeare.

Feedback of our Business Partners and Clients

It was a new and unforgettable experience for all of us to stand on a theater’s stage. Excitement, stage fright, and a feeling of being overwhelmed were all very strong at the beginning. With guidance from Andreas, we learned tricks that we will surely all put into practice in the future.

To start off, I’d like to thank you again for two great days jammed packed with new ways of approaching life, new thoughts and fresh impulses. I was so thrilled about this training and also about having Andi as our trainer. I’d like to add a big shout out to Andi as well as the course concept itself- just sensational and most definitely recommendable to absolutely everyone.

Wether it be a team building activity or a personal development exercise: the mbys team is the perfect partner. It’s exactly what a seminar should have: Specialists, expertise, perfect timing, depth, fun and humor as well as room for reflection. Thank you so much!
