Crafting a Leadership Story


Ever since cave dwellers scratched rough outlines of antelope on rock walls, we have been communicating with each other through the use of stories. Even today when business leaders stand up in conference rooms to present their business plans complete with Power Points, videos and online whiteboards, they are telling a story. We communicate with stories because we think in stories. Anthropologists, psychologists, neurologists and sociologists agree upon one thing; we live our lives and construct our thinking according to stories. In fact, the human mind is wired to constantly create stories as a mechanism to make sense out of the world and to organize the information we take in. As A.S. Byatt said: “Narration is as much a part of human nature as breath and circulation of the blood.” In this hands-on workshop, participants will study a powerful methodology for created leadership stories and practice preparing and delivering a story related to a current, important leadership opportunity or challenge.”
