I was very intrigued by this title. As a Leader who Leads other LEADERS it takes alot to motivate and encourage them. So I opened this book with some high expectations.
Before I get into that here is what the publisher had to say:
"Paul Smith is scary smart, an amazing storyteller." --Chip Heath, Author Made to Stick
The reason for this is simple: Stories have the ability to engage an audience the way logic and bullet points alone never could. Whether you are trying to communicate a vision, sell an idea, or inspire commitment, storytelling is a powerful business tool that can mean the difference between mediocre results and phenomenal success.
Lead with a Story contains both ready-to-use stories and how-to guidance for readers looking to craft their own. Designed for a wide variety of business challenges, the book shows how narrative can help: Define culture and values • Engender creativity and innovation • Foster collaboration and build relationships • Provide coaching and feedback • Lead change • And more.
