Once upon a time: The importance of storytelling in leadership

Once upon a time: The importance of storytelling in leadership | Emotional Wisdom | 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.

Managers have the option of going beyond trust-at-a-distance and becoming known to their direct reports as a person.

Crisis: Emotional Threat or Challenge

Crisis: Emotional Threat or Challenge | Emotional Wisdom | Scoop.it

Emotions lie at the heart of how you respond to crises. They are the starting point for all of the reactions that we have toward a crisis. They are also the first obstacle to establishing a positive response to a crisis. That is why it is essential to understand the role that emotions play in how we react, with the goal being to gain control of and use our emotions in constructive ways when confronted by crises.

 

Whether you view crises as a threat or a challenge sets into motion a diametrically opposed cascade of emotions, thoughts, and behavior that result in either a constructive or harmful response to crises.
