Key Leadership Question: Do You Make Yourself Better? | Thin Difference

Key Leadership Question: Do You Make Yourself Better? | Thin Difference | MILE Leadership | Scoop.it

"Key question from Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit: Do you make yourself better? It is about self-leadership."

 

"We need to lean in and improve ourselves. It is the greatest challenge we need to address. We need to:

 

- Read to learn, adapt, adopt, and augment.

- Attend conferences to absorb, adjust, and act anew.

- Engage in conversations to be held accountable and grow in understanding.

- Reflect on our actions, our work, our relationships, and our leadership. From self-reflection, ensure we are on the right paths, making the right choices and doing things in the right way. If not, change.

Strategic Storytelling | Business Truisms

Strategic Storytelling | Business Truisms | MILE Leadership | Scoop.it

Every so often, a traditionally non-business word finds its way into the business world, fueled by an admirable desire to find new ways to think about old challenges. “Storytelling” has become one of those words.

 

What a nicely written article pointing to several truisms in business storytelling. Some you are familiar with (storytelling is a pull, not a push technology). I like the ones that I don't read much about:
1. Storytelling is a selfless, empowering act
2. Storytelling looks to the future

 

As the author Bill Baker (from Marketing Profs) says, "Successful storytelling respects the past and appreciates the present, but it also looks boldly into the future, moving people past “what is” to “what if?” Done well, storytelling helps people collectively imagine a vision of the future that is achievable and worth achieving, helping them to understand not only what they’re working on but also what they’re working toward." Yes!

 

And, "As you consider using storytelling strategically to give meaning to your brand communications or employee-engagement efforts, don’t do so simply because it is “the next big thing.” Do it because, if you truly listen and you are willing to be generous, authentic, emotional, and collectively creative— it works. As one senior client recently said, “This is a bit frightening. I feel vulnerable; but at the same time, because I’m being myself, I feel more confident.” If your organization is ready for that journey, there’s a great story ahead."

 

Love it. This is a quick post that is rich in insights & examples (ignore its clunky layout). Enjoy!
