Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

My latest book, Reel Leadership, is now available on Amazon. If you love movies and leadership, you will love this book.

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is an engaging animated film. Hailing from DC Comics, the film has the Green Lantern Corps’ home planet of Oa under attack. Hal Jordan (Nathan Fillion) prepares the new Green Lantern recruit Arisia (Elisabeth Moss) for the upcoming attack.

How Hal does this is interesting. Hal doesn’t send her to combat school, simulations, or anything like that. No, Hal recalls stories of the first Green Lantern and other Green Lanterns that have come before her. 

Members of the Green Lantern Corps. Arisa (blonde woman), Hal Jordan (Dark haired male with a mask over his eyes), and Sinestro (A human-like alien with red skin)

She’s prepared for the upcoming battle by recalling history and what other Green Lanterns have done. 

This was a masterful way to share the history of the Green Lantern Corps, explain how things are done, and show viewers that there’s more than action for these DC heroes. It’s also a great way to teach the viewer impactful leadership lessons.
