One “must” for this week
"Storytelling that drives bold change". by Frances Frei
Effective storytelling can drive change in organizations.
We can build support for change by emphasizing continuity and showing sensitivity towards those resistant to change. It's also essential to confront the organization's past honestly and build trust.
Emotions also play a crucial role in leading change, with a leader's optimism and other emotions being highly infectious.
