What is the book about?
The Owl Approach to Storytelling is written by Sandy Colletta. She has been using her ability to craft stories to use them as a means of reaching out within the various organizations where she has been the corporate leader. She feels that leadership in corporates has become increasingly impersonal which has lead to a disconnect between the people on the ground and the executives in the boardroom. This book has been created to convey the importance of storytelling in organization as well as the process by which this can be done.
“The Owl Approach to Storytelling” is a short, well written book which manages to balance conciseness with communication. It is full of insights and anecdotes. I found it heart-warming and pragmatic at the same time.
Storytelling and the process of doing so is an art form. Sandy Coletta has done a great job in putting a process around something as intangible as this. When I compare it to the other book on storytelling that I have read (The Leader’s Guide to Storytelling), I find ‘The Owl’ to be more enjoyable, approachable and effective.
I recommend this book.
How refreshing to read a business book that leads with the human spirit and the importance of stepping back and viewing the situation through the lens of life's experiences. The best leaders are those that are both pragmatic and kind - staying focused on the goals of the organization, while saying connected to the real needs of the people they are serving. Through her winning stories and real life examples, Sandy Coletta hits a home run with "The Owl Approach to Storytelling."
