Speaking of Leadership Part Three – 5 Messages that Matter from Storyline

In this blog, Elumn8 shares five “aha” moments from a Storyline Conference in Nashville, TN. It’s a wonderful mix of good advice, inspiration and challenge, and a lot of fun — especially ending with my favorite poet, Mary Oliver! Reminded me of my own interdisciplinary work, working with core stories. I believe story in business and personal leadership is about a lived experience, not something you tell. These tips — get rejected! – wow! — made me think of that. In order to shift our leadership story, we need to take action, live the story, challenge the habitual story that keeps us stuck by challenging our stuck places! I like the conclusion: “The message of storyline is that you can edit your story. Whatever has happened. Wherever you are. Your story is still yours to write. It doesn’t have to turn out the way others tell you it should or the way it has in the past. You can start today to build a better story, for yourself, and for the people you serve. ” It takes guts and self-awareness to edit your lived leadership story but it’s well worth it!
