Once upon a time: The importance of storytelling in leadership

Once upon a time: The importance of storytelling in leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Stories work for leaders as a successful communication technique for several reasons. Storytelling translates dry and abstract numbers into compelling pictures of a leader’s goals. Stories convey emotion effectively, and emotion united with a strong idea is persuasive. We remember what we feel and our emotions inspire us to take action. Charts can leave listeners bemused; documents remain unread and dialogue is just too laborious and slow. Although good business cases are developed through the use of numbers, when faced with the task of persuading others to get enthusiastic about a major change, storytelling is the only thing that works. Stories are memorable: research claims that we are up to 22 times more likely to remember a story than a set of disconnected facts.

Seven Leadership Lessons to Learn Before the Election

Seven Leadership Lessons to Learn Before the Election | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
With the Presidential election less than two months away, there are valuable leadership lessons we can all learn from the process as we watch from afar.

 

The Conventions are over.

 

The election of a new President is less than two months away.

 

This post isn’t about politics or who you should vote for.  This post is for you as a leader.

 

For while you will likely never have your every move reported on TV, never have your tax returns a matter of public record, and never seek an office like the Presidency, there are lessons we can all learn from the process as we watch from afar.

 

So whether you lean left or right, whether you consider yourself a political junkie or nearly apathetic, I want to give you reasons to watch the candidates, the rhetoric and the commentary over the next two months.

 

Watch and learn.

 

Here are seven lessons I am sure you will learn if you watch....

On the Horizon

On the Horizon | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

It is sometimes a challenge for me to remember the horizon.

 

I tend to become focused on what is in front of me. My attention gets absorbed in the immediate decision we are trying to make, the specific question we are trying to answer, the person facing me who wants my help. When I walk, I tend to look where I am taking my next step.

 

I need to remind myself how important it is to look for what is on the horizon.

 

The horizon is the line where the earth meets the sky. It is the boundary between what we can see and what is just outside our sight. There is a horizon in any direction we look; it surrounds us, and we do not know what is waiting just past the horizon.

 

It is helpful for me to take time regularly to stop, take a breath, and look at the horizon. The horizon reminds me that there are things I cannot see, though they may not be very far away.

MIT's Ed Schein on Why Corporate Culture Is No Longer the Relevant Topic and What Is - Forbes

MIT's Ed Schein on Why Corporate Culture Is No Longer the Relevant Topic and What Is - Forbes | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

" To help leaders deal with multi-cultural teams, which is where it’s going to be at, two things need to happen – leaders have to become much more humble and learn how to seek help, because the subordinates under them will be much more knowledgeable than they, and secondly leaders will have to create cultural islands where people from differently occupational and national cultures can spend suspend some of the rules and talk to each other more directly, for example, about how they view trust, how they view authority, or how they deal with bosses that make mistakes.

If leaders can’t create those kinds of cultural islands, they won’t be able to create teams that can actually work."

The Word I Don’t Hear Much

The Word I Don’t Hear Much | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
“Leaders who think more about what they get than what they give can’t be trusted.

 

“We have a crisis in leadership. Confidence in leaders continues to decline. At the same time, our current financial situation says we are in disparate need of leaders.”

 

“Would you trust your leaders to babysit your children?” John Baldoni.

 

Leadership begins with trust. Acting in the best interest of others builds trust. Self-interest, at the expense of others, destroys trust.

Comfortable with Chaos 15

Comfortable with Chaos 15 | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Your career (and your business) is not a 6 lane highway where you can keep speeding in a single direction.

 

It is a curvy road that throws up a lot of unexpected situations. Economic downturns, changes in demand/supply and such uncertainties.

 

You cannot control any of these situations, but how you respond to them is totally in your control.

 

One thing is clear: We need to get comfortable with chaos.

 

Comfortable doesn’t mean that you let chaos happen around you and choose not to respond.

 

Being comfortable with chaos means being more responsive to chaos and creative in spotting opportunities around.
