What’s Your Leadership Story?
Psst … wanna’ hear a story?
Most workplaces have someone who always has a good story to tell, be it about the latest office rumor, a former co-worker, a local politician, or an ex-husband or -wife. But if Steve Denning had his way, the best storytellers in the office would be the people who lead it—the senior and junior executives who want to spark action, inspire creativity, encourage collaboration, and move the organization forward.
Denning, who will present the opening keynote address at the SLA 2015 Leadership Summit, is widely considered the foremost authority on using storytelling and narrative as leadership tools. He has written several books on this topic, most recently The Leader’s Guide to Radical Management (2010), which is required reading in many business school programs. He also blogs about storytelling and radical management for Forbes magazine.
The closing keynote at the Leadership Summit will feature another expert in the field of leadership—James Calvin, associate professor at the Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins University. Calvin has written articles about leadership networking and adaptive leadership for several scholarly journals.
