What leadership lessons can you learn from James Bond? According to David K. Williams, Forbes contributor, skip the motivational speeches. Flashy orations aren’t the only way to get people to do what you want. In Thunderball and The Spy Who Loved Me, Bond demonstrated that it’s not always necessary to persuade your team to follow you into battle (or in his case, to even put their lives on the line). Often, simply charging forward with sufficient confidence and courage will inspire employees to follow your lead.
