We believe that story has never been more powerful or more necessary. In today’s complex world, to lead is to play the role of storyteller: to create the conditions by which people are willing and able to embark on a journey of change. This is no easy task, and there are no easy endings. But we know there are three simple conditions that every journey of change needs to meet: Motivation. Means. Momentum. Because people without the motivation won’t change. People without the means can’t change. And without momentum, people don’t sustain change.
By helping us find personal meaning while building a sense of collective purpose, stories engage us in a journey we want to be part of. By connecting our rational and emotional minds, stories spur us into action. And by weaving personal storytelling into our daily experience, stories help us build empathy and trust with our peers, keeping our commitment strong.
Stories are influential learning tools. They help us navigate change, process complexity and retain vital information. In a collective Story, we find a powerful base for shared understanding. By using personal storytelling to share success and illustrate best practice, we help our peers learn lessons independently, give them the confidence to adapt learnings to their own context.
Stories define the norms that shape our identity as individuals and groups. They’re the true measure of ‘the way we do things around here’, and without collective endorsement or belief, new behaviours quickly fade. By using key influencers to socialise stories of successful change, we can quickly shift existing norms and embed new ones, maintaining momentum and keeping the Story alive.
