As we frequently talk about with our clients and in our posts, personal and professional development are key to growing into strong leaders ready for the challenges of tomorrow. Approaching development from the perspective of a student of leadership as an art and science is an effective way to absorb new ideas and incorporate them into your leadership philosophy and style. This kind of development can be difficult to do on your own if you don’t have a group of other leaders to discuss and debate with. We want to help build a strong community of leaders who have a forum to discuss the ideas that are on their minds. This month we will be discussing storytelling as a method of communication to those we lead and others around us.
Storytelling – October’s Leadership Book Club Theme
Human beings have been telling stories as long as they have had the ability to speak. For generations, storytelling has been proven to be an effective method to share information, communicate themes and messages and persuade people. On October 2, 2015, Evil Genius Leadership Consultants will host a Blab live stream discussion of Stephen Denning’s The Leader’s Guide to Storytelling: Mastering the Art and Discipline of Business Narrative. We’ll talk about why storytelling is so effective in conveying messages, if you should include storytelling in your own communication style and how we can all become better storytellers.
