Speak, Lead, Change
How and why the modern day leader need to master the art of storytelling to move the needle.
Storytelling is an essential part of leadership. The recent global events have showed us how important it is that leaders communicate strong, empathic and… thought stories to facilitate the necessary change.
Leading voices like The Ukrainian president Zelensky made an incredible impact on how we look at the war.
Zelensky is our 21st century ‘Great communicator’ as Ronald Reagan was called in the 20th century. Both were actors.
Effective leaders communicate to inspire talent to excel; to partner with investors and communities; to engage with customers and clients and to grow their impact in the world as part of a global community. Cultivating an authentic, trustworthy and compelling narrative is vital to a leader’s success. It also helps leaders find their own story through personal branding; develop storytelling success with all constituencies; initiate an effective voice for crisis; interact well through social and third party media; and communicate a vision for innovation.
