Lecture 8: So far, you’ve told several leadership stories. Why?
It’s important that you think up several stories you can use to make leadership points with others. Stories are:
- Powerful messaging devices
- Our brains are wired to receive stories
- No one argues with a story
- Stories convey emotion and emotion is stronger than logic
- When you think up stories to tell, you reflect on the past – learning from your past makes you a better leader.
TIPS: Make you stories concise (2-5 minutes), make a solid leadership point, include some struggle or conflict, use vivid language, never make yourself the hero, and practice.
Bonus: When you give or get feedback project it into the future not the past. The receiver’s brain thinks it is getting help rather than blame.
