Karen Dietz's curator insight, October 28, 2013 8:58 PM

My biz story colleague Shawn Callahan in Australia has put together a terrific list of leaders telling all kinds of different business stories. It's a wonderful collection for the following reasons:


  1. Each story is a different kind
  2. Each leader tells their story/stories in their own authentic style
  3. Some are stories, some are short anecdotes
  4. Polished presentations aren't around -- just honest sharing
  5. They all make an impact


Leaders sharing stories is one of the best ways to observe that all kinds of stories can make a difference. There are certainly times when a leader has to stand a deliver a well crafted finely honed story. But in daily life, leaders share stories in all kinds of ways. And that's what this collection shows.


I really like how in the text Callahan also gives us the place stories are told in some of the longer videos. That way we can skip through them and get to the storytelling.


I know I enjoyed listening to these leaders and not seeing cookie-cutter telling. I hope you enjoy them also. And find additional uses for them.

MIT--The 2 Most Underrated Leadership Skills includes storytelling

VideoLeadership is changing. A big part is the impact of the Millennials. They are less apt to respond to command & control and respond much more positively to a different kind of leadership. Even a recession has not cured them of this.

I found this article really interesting because it is not your ordinary run-of-the mill article about leadership. Recent MIT studies have identified 2 essential leadership skills that are completely under the radar.


The first critical leadership skill is sense-making. The way they talk about this in the article is being able to make sense of the environment and its rapid changes, then being able to operate from that sense-making. This leads me to think how important storytelling is in that process -- listening for stories, being able to make sense from them, extrapolate meaning from that, and then sharing stories with that meaning to bring others on board.


The second critical leadership skill the study identified is innovation. No surprises there and that does not really connect to storytelling. But what does connect is the section of the article talking about a leader's leadership signature -- their unique way of leading. Now storytelling comes front and center again. It's the stories you as a leader share, and the stories told about a leader, that defines that signature. As the article says, it's a leader's values, experiences, and skills that make up that signature. Again, I'm saying that happens through the stories that are shared.


So this is a provocative read. And it won't take you long. Think about the insights here whether you are a leader in an enterprise, a manager, entrerpreneur, or small business firm.

Read Karen's Insight.  Relating to Leadership and reflecting on Lee Thayer's 4+ decades focused on Leadership and High Performance, leaders don't have a Vision, the Vision has them. And the story they share allows others to choose to be part of that Vision.


As Karen shares: "It's the stories you as a leader share, and the stories told about a leader, that defines that signature. As the article says, it's a leader's values, experiences, and skills that make up that signature. Again, I'm saying that happens through the stories that are shared."

Some people are just born with leaderships skills and the rest of us have to work at it. You've seen them before--the charismatic leaders who have a way of motivating the people around them. They instill a feeling that we are all accountable and that if one of us fails, we all fail.
