I’m a reader, with books often stashed into my carry-on and set in small stacks beside the couch. Lately I’ve been on a fiction bender with a bit of non-fiction thrown in. Below are some of my favorites. If you’re digging into something fantastic, let me know. Some of my most memorable reads come from recommendations.
All the Light We Cannot See, Anthony Doerr
The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace, Jeff Hobbs
Behind the Beautiful Forevers, Katherine Boo
The Signature of All Things, Elizabeth Gilbert
I’m not a writer, but my talks on leadership and innovation are infused with story. To give context and meaning. Inspire and spur imagination. Create understanding.
And adhere to memory.
Are you using metaphor and story to make your points?
To begin a meeting with your direct reports?
To galvanize the best and highest efforts of your team members?
One of my most popular talks is “The Making Magnificence Project™ – Keys to Leadership Success.” It’s been a huge hit at senior executive conferences.
And it’s full of story.
