Storytelling: It’s not just for bedtime

Description: We routinely hear about the power and impact of storytelling. It is also an invaluable Leadership Development tool. Storytelling helps leaders internalize, reflect and intentionally think about their actions. It also helps shape culture and establish trust through vulnerability. We regularly hear how important storytelling is in leadership, yet leaders still don’t use it. Many don’t know where to start, feel they do not have a story to tell, or are concerned about being vulnerable. This interactive session covers how to take one of the oldest tools for development and use it in innovative ways to help leaders be vulnerable and connect, influence and have positive impact.
