Everyone loves a good story, don't they? For the modern leader or executive, it's become essential. Yet, there is an art to it, and many people don't like or aren't good at storytelling. Like anything else, however, it is a skill and can subsequently be learned. Even if there are natural boundaries, these can be turned into a positive part of storytelling - it's just about discovering how to do it.
Your own life may have a fascinating narrative arc, and even if it doesn't feel like the classical Hero's Journey, it often appears to be much more fertile ground to others instead of ourselves. So in this episode, we're going to discuss various aspects of storytelling and why it can be such an effective tool to aid both your life and career.
I hope you enjoy the episode.
