Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very clear and concise how-do to enable storytelling from the exec and leadership ranks of business. Based on my experience of 20+ years in high-tech management, most leaders are really lacking in basic skills of how to tell their and the company stories in a way that motivates and excites. In this book, those tips are revealed and explained with a simple but powerful structure of Introduction, Reflection, Construction, Delivery and Impact. Very useful as tool to sell businesses on the need for developing storytelling skillset as a critical part of their communications. Great quotes from experts, clear layout, and dynamic exercise. A must to promote storytelling for leaders!

My good friend (and personal business guru) Chris Cavanaugh's new book is a clear how-to for unlocking the power of storytelling from Intern to C Suite.  I know enough about storytelling to know this: "3 Stories Leaders Tell" is a 'must read' for anyone on a track to success. ~ Barnet Bain, producer, What Dreams May Come, Homeless to Harvard.

As consultants and coaches, how do we help our clients take control of the narratives that shape their company's culture? Chris Cavanaugh-Simmons breaks down that daunting task into step-by-step work-book instructions.

In Three Stories Leaders Tell, she shows leaders how to master the creation and delivery of three essential narratives: "Who Am I?, "Who are We?," and "Where are We Going?"

"Who Am I?" stories let employees connect with a leader through understanding the events and challenges that formed her. Cavanaugh-Simmons offers methods to mine our personal histories for values that are essential to us and our audience. These shared values, illustrated by compelling stories, make leaders' speeches quotable. In other words, good stories go viral.

Similarly, the author shows how to harness the power of the other two stories...

"Who are We?" stories "rebind, renew, and inspire people about what they have accomplished in the past, what they stand for, and in some cases how they have faced adversity and persevered."

"Where are We Going" stories are the strategic narratives that define "the choices a group must make and the `better place' these choices will take the group once they are acted upon."

Not only does she tell readers how to create stories, Christine gives practical advice about how to deliver them for maximum effect.

With Three Stories Leaders Tell Christine Cavanaugh-Simmons makes a significant contribution to transformational methods. Her book is brief, to the point, and 100% actionable. It is a toolkit for transformation that every coach, consultant, OD and HR professional needs to own.
