Storytelling in Leadership

“It is easy to forget how mysterious and mighty stories are. They do their work in silence, invisibly. They work with all the internal materials of the mind and self. They become part of you while changing you. Beware the stories you read or tell; subtly, at night, beneath the waters of consciousness, they are altering your world.” —Ben Okri

We tell stories all the time. And we all have our own stories.  We’re not always aware of how our stories create our worlds, and how others are influenced by these stories. Remember the story about ‘The Little Engine That Could?The Tortoise and the Hare’?

I have watched  her repeatedly transform ‘hopeless cases’ (my judgment, not hers) into brilliant communicators. The effect is quite jaw-dropping. But perhaps, even more remarkably, she also takes brilliant communicators and transforms them into slightly better ones.
