Leading with Stories
Great leaders have always been storytellers. They use stories to connect with people, to inspire change, to create clarity, to teach, to share values, to calm fears. However, most organisations have become dominated by data-driven, analytical, abstract approaches to communication and management where human connection is treated as a nicety, not a necessity.
As storytellers, we know better, and we have something to offer. If you're a storyteller, come along to explore how you can use the powerful skills you already have to create the change you want to see in the world. And if you don't think you have any stories to tell, come along and find out that in fact, you do.
Workshop Presenter: Patricia Mc Millan, from Meaning Works is a Consultant and Storyteller who works with people to help them find, shape, and tell their own stories about the work they do and what it means. She specialises in working with information technology and research organisations, educational institutions, and libraries. With 20 years of experience working in these environments in the United States and in Australia she brings an enthusiastic approach to using story in any workplace.
Venue: Gladesville Community Centre, 44 Gladesville Road, Hunters Hill.
Cost: $35 or $25 for members, pensioners and students. Come for the whole day or just the workshop.
