Kathy Klotz-Guest's curator insight, January 1, 2016 1:42 PM
This short article is a great reminder that storytelling is critical for leadership. I'd say it's *the* most critical leadership skill today. If you can't inspire others with a story, it's hard to influence no matter what organization or industry you are in. Part of why I like this article is for the recommended exercise at the end: map out the highs and lows of your life story. Use these points as inflection points for how you might inspire and motivate others. Leadership means creating a vision that people can grab onto. This is a great way to start thinking about your life in just that way. Happy New Year!

I also use story telling in ICN's Executive MBA programme as it encourages peer-to-peer learning about deep messages learned by way of change management efforts.

How to Use Storytelling as a Leadership Tool - Forbes

How to Use Storytelling as a Leadership Tool - Forbes | Storytelling for engagement | Scoop.it
Paul Smith I recently spoke to Paul Smith, who is a consumer research executive, keynote speaker, corporate trainer, and author of Lead with a Story: A Guide to Crafting Business Narratives that Captivate, Convince, and Inspire (AMACOM Books, August,...

 

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.

 

If you want to know more about storytelling and leadership, read this article and then get the book (I have no affiliation with Paul or his publisher).

 

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