Storytelling is often seen as decoration - something to jazz up a speech or add personality to a presentation. Truth is, there is a great deal more to story and understanding its full potential will transform your leadership. Story for Leaders outlines the must-have techniques to create a compelling story and deliver it with power. David Pearl goes further, showing us how story can be used to shape our future, navigate our personal and professional lives and engage those around in a shared vision. And when David refers to 'leaders' he doesn't mean the extraordinary types - up there on a pedestal with a big flag and curved sword - he's talking about everyday leadership. So, if you're the kind of person who wants to get something done and works with other people to do it, if you have a team or community that looks to you for direction or guidance, if you're trying to change the status quo or make the world a better place even in a tiny way, then this book was written for you.

While some of the nuggets are contained within the text, they're difficult to find because they're buried under layers of verbose prose. I found this a difficult read - it's rambling with not much substance. It was hard to figure out if the author's audience is the corporate world, authors, filmmakers or professional speakers.
Pretty gutted with this book, to be honest. Not one I'll be reaching for again in a hurry.
We are moved and motivated by stories. We tell each other stories. We create stories.
So many presentations are dull. So much "strategy" is mere jargon.
So read David Pearl to find out about the story of stories and how essential they are.
