Alan Veeck, thoughtLEADERS Principal, sat down with Jim and Jan of The Leadership Podcast to discuss storytelling and what it means for you as a leader.
In continuation of our new collaboration with The Leadership Podcast, Alan talks about the power of storytelling in this short form “chalk talk.” These chalk talk series are bitesize sessions on a common (but challenging) leadership issue.
Jim and Jan ask Alan to explain how storytelling applies in the context of the business world, where Alan delves into how to use storytelling ‘differently’ and to utilize human emotion to accomplish your goals.
Explaining why we are emotional beings and how this has played out, Alan continues to further point out how it’s important that we don’t completely leave emotion out of the work we are doing. And, additionally, how to blend ‘big facts’ and emotions into the modern day workplace.
Stay tuned for more of these brief Chalk Talks featuring Alan, as well as many more members of the thoughtLEADERS team.
