In this episode of How To Take The Lead we explore the power of storytelling in the context of leadership. Whether you are a natural born storyteller or you are a leader who deals in facts and figures, we discuss the importance of storytelling to build connections.
In this episode we share our thoughts, experiences and learning, including:
· 03:38 – creating sticky content
· 10:51 – listening to all the stories
· 14:53 – stop shoehorning in irrelevant stories
· 25:59 – stories and data working together
· 32:25 – How to ... use storytelling as a leader
As always we share our top takeaways and in this episode we highlight the need to ensure your story is aligned to your purpose, not being the hero in your story and also the need to practice, practice, practice.
