Storynomics: How to Create a Story That Inspires

Storynomics: How to Create a Story That Inspires | i love a good story | Scoop.it

“People really need to know how to execute story in terms of marketing, branding, advertising, and so forth; and in terms of leadership: how you manage and lead people by communicating with them in story form, especially in strategy, because a business strategy, of course, is a story yet to happen.”
