    EP031 Oral Stories | Shawn Callahan

    EP031 Oral Stories | Shawn Callahan

    Jo Hands has the brilliant Shawn Callahan in the hot seat this week, and it's time to share stories. Shawn started as a geographer and archaeologist before working in IT with the likes of Oracle, Sybase and IBM. His story-work began in 1999 while at IBM, at the Cynefin Centre, when applying complexity theory to business issues. This is where Shawn discovered the power of small stories, anecdotes, rather than Hollywood inspired story methods.

    In 2004 he founded Anecdote, with one clear aim in mind – to use story-work to bring humanity back to organisations.

    In the years of pioneering international consulting since then, through Anecdote Shawn has taught leaders and sellers how to be compelling storytellers and collected powerful organisational stories that prompt employees to work out for themselves what needs to change. It is an approach that continues to break new ground.

    Anecdote is now in the privileged position of being one of the most experienced and highly regarded story-based communications agency in the world. We operate in 22 countries and 11 languages.
    Tune in to hear Shawn's story firsthand...

    EP029 Taking Ownership | Michelle Gibbings

    Jo Hands has the insightful Michelle Gibbings in the hot seat this week, talking all about taking ownership and what it means to be a leader. Michelle is on a mission to bring a little joy back into the workplace, after all, she is the expert. Speaking internationally about better ways to lead, she is in high demand as an innovative keynote speaker, advisor and executive mentor of choice, with her best-selling books a must-have for employees and managers alike.

    The key to her success is working with people through three lenses; as an individual, a leader, and in their wider role (and influence) within their organisation. Tapping into each of these facets, she brings self-awareness to the forefront, empowering people to work with those around them in a way that is productive, healthy and happy. It’s not rocket science - when you are at your best it inspires others to do the same and harnessed together this translates to profitable and beneficial outcomes for all.

    In a time of unprecedented change, organisations need leaders at every level, inspiring progress by harnessing the energy and capability of its people. From her penmanship to her captivating keynotes, Michelle’s relentless pursuit to empower people is palpable. She is on a mission to change workplaces for the better – helping leaders to take the wheel and be prepared for whatever comes their way, getting them ready for tomorrow, today.
