story-telling
Posted under: Executive Coaching 16th of June, 2011

The art of telling stories in motivational leadership is well known.

Leaders can tell stories to paint a vision or strategic direction, share a lesson, convey values or illustrate desired behaviours. Stories also have an ability to forge deeper connections between people, provide context that can make it easier to internalize values and lessons of leadership and experience.
