Bill Harley is one of my storytelling heros. A professional storyteller, Bill is extremely eloquent and inspiring as he talks about the power of telling a story live, in person.
Even my software engineering husband Tim stopped his work to listen to Bill's video as I was reviewing it.
So what has this got to do with business? It's simple:
- Everytime Bill says "teacher" substitute "leader."
- Everytime Bill talks about telling stories to audiences of students, think about your last presentation and the folks who remained silent and looking like they could care less.
- Everytime Bill talks about in-person storytelling think about what you are doing technology wise with your biz stories.
Bill explains to us what is really going on.
I can't tell you how many times when I work with leaders, they just want to get a story down so they can video tape it. Wrong move!!! And again, Bill tells us why. Technology has a place, and Bill helps us keep it all in perspective.
Thank you Bill for this terrific 13 minutes! I'm going to use this in my MBA classes and my work with leaders. Woo hoo!
