Stories were a very important part of my leadership style at the many companies which I was either the Chairman, The President or the CEO.
I tried to give each manager or executive who reports directly to me:
1) a copy of “The Go Getter” booklet by Peter Kyne
2) a copy of the Abilene Paradox by Jerry Harvey
Check out the Abilene DVD at CRM Learning
They have a collection of top training videos.
3) a copy of my speech on the 8 Success Traits
As a result – a part of our short hand language or style became such comments:Is he/she lucky?Is he/she a Go Getter?Are we about to take a trip to Abilene?Is it clear to you that this project is a “blue vaser?”
Hope this helps. Best regards. Red
