During the Academy Awards ceremony, I noticed a common theme from the presenters and winners, which was the importance of telling a good story. No matter what kind of movie, the best movies have the best stories. The best actors typically come from the best movies.
The difference between telling a story for a movie and telling a story as a leader is that the leader’s story has to have a purpose. The purpose can be:
- To get people to follow a vision.
- To touch their heart.
- To lift up and encourage followers.
Our inaugural Storytelling for Leaders (& Aspiring Leaders) Master Class kicked off today. We are very excited to help the participants learn how to tell better purposeful stories in an interactive environment. This class was so well received, we decided to add another one starting March 16, 2020.
If you would like to participate in the next class, then enroll with the Early Bird Special of 30% until February 17, 2020.
Watch the Academy Award winning animated short film, “Hair Love” below. It’s another great storytelling example.
