The Chief Storytelling Officer
Leaders in any organization or setting have tactical responsibilities. Strategically, the most important role they play is that of a chief storytelling officer. Simply put, leaders need to be great communicators, and great storytellers to get their message across in a compelling and understandable way. This is important because leaders need to change hearts and minds. They need to inspire others and convince them that the potential rewards of certain actions are worth the required risks. During critical times, instilling confidence through good storytelling is particularly important because fear can paralyze an organization or situation. If leaders can make fear an ally instead of a foe through storytelling, they can motivate and move an organization or a situation forward through uncertain times.
