Storytelling as a Leadership Practice

What you will learn in

Storytelling as a Leadership Practice Learning Path

All leaders have goals they need or want to reach. The difference is the tools individual leaders use to accomplish them. In this first part of a three-course series, we’ll introduce you to the concept of using storytelling as a highly effective leadership practice and how you can start crafting your stories to deliver your leadership message.

This Learning Path covers three different topics in depth: Constructing Concise and Authentic Leadership Stories; Connecting Leadership Stories to a Clear Purpose; and Delivering Your Leadership Story. Rarely taught as part of leadership education, this is a special opportunity to learn the basics and best practices of leadership storytelling directly from topic expert, Dr. Shannon Cleverley-Thompson, Ed.D.
