Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 12, 6:23 PM

I love articles like this because when I read them, I see just how many leadership skills storytelling helps with.

 

So imagine this -- by focusing on building your storytelling skills, on top of that you are building skills in at least 10 other hard-to-do areas. That's what I call being very efficient!

 

From the list in this post, here are the 10 skills storytelling will help you master:

  1. Listening
  2. Effective communication
  3. Managing expectations
  4. Coaching (story listening is also a coaching activity)
  5. Building up morale
  6. Recognizing great work (better to do through stories than examples)
  7. Better decision making (because you have better information via story listening)
  8. Team building
  9. Staying positive & enthusiastic

 

It makes sense to for leaders to pay attention to building their story skills because of the both large and small impacts they can have on people and organizations. Enjoy this post and story on!
