The Teacher Tip
Activist Marshall Ganz on Leadership & Storytelling
March 17, 2017
From Minds Made for Stories, by Tom Newkirk
‘A leadership story is first a story of self, a story of why I’ve been called. Some people say, “I don’t want to talk about myself,” but if you don’t interpret to others your calling and your reason for doing what you’re doing, do you think it will just stay uninterpreted? No. Others will interpret it for you. You don’t have a choice if you want to be a leader. You have to claim authorship of your story and learn to tell it to others so they can understand the values that move you to act, because it might move them as well.’
