I've been following Dan Schawbel for years and was delighted to find that he recently interviewed colleague Paul Smith at Proctor and Gamble about his new book on storytelling and leadership titled Lead With A Story.
This interview with Paul that Dan conducted is chock full of good information about the need for leaders to develop storytelling as a core competence. And tips on how companies can make storytelling part of their leadership practices.
What I love about Paul's book is his identification of 21 common leadership challenges where storytelling can help. He based his conclusions on his interviews with 75+ CEOs and executives at companies around the world.

You will have more tools at your disposal than when you started!
