A Reel Leadership Article

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

This weekend is a huge one at the box office. Many moviegoers and critics are calling it the Barbenheimer weekend. What does Barbenheimer mean?

Two big movies are releasing. The first is Margot Robbie’s Barbie. The second is Christopher Nolan’s biography, Oppenheimer

Never fear Reel Leaders, you won’t have to choose whether to see one, the other, or both. We’re bringing you Reel Leadership lessons on both of these movies.

The first, Barbie.

Ryan Gossling as Ken and Margot Robbie as Barbie in the Barbie movie. Ken is holding a pair of yellow rollerblades.

Barbie surprised me. It’s a much deeper movie than one would suspect. It tackles subjects such as how we treat one another, our relationships with parents, and how we view ourselves.

It’s deep. And it’s good. It may be one of the funniest movies I’ve seen all year long as well.

Scene from The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

The once cheerful characters have had to become hardened. They fear what is to come and how to save themselves.
