I will be privileged later this week to be in the audience when the Managing Director of one of my clients updates all staff on the organisations story. He is passionate and articulate and despite visiting many locations of late I have no doubt he will have high energy.
When the boss is a great storyteller/sharer it inspires others to be and do the same. How great a storyteller/sharer are you?
Sharing the ongoing story of your shared-view about
where you're going
why you're going there
how you will get where you're going
who will do what and when
how you will behave along the way
and celebrating milestones and achievement
are all critical to the ongoing success of your organisation.
Who else apart from you are telling and sharing your story?
Have you shown appreciation to them lately?
Successful story telling and sharing is a key way to differentiate yourself and your organisation because when done remarkably it helps you to rise above the noise. There is more noise today than there has ever been.
Anyone can learn the art of storytelling. To master this art takes a big investment of time, energy, and money. Are you making such an investment?
Authentic stories, those we feel and see ourselves in, really matter.
Be the difference you want to see in the world.
