About this title:

Synopsis:

How to master the art of narrative leadership

Telling the Story shows how leaders affect our understanding of what is possible and desirable through the stories they tell. It opens a door into the world of narrative leadership: what stories are and how they work; when to tell a story and how to tell one well; and how the language and metaphors we use influence our actions and change how we think about the world.

· Explains how narrative leadership shapes and defines what’s possible on an organizational level

· Written by a renowned consultant on the art of narrative leadership

· Challenges leaders to consider how narrative can influence and help create the kind of society they envision

From the Inside Flap: "Mead's book makes me feel hopeful and inspired about the future, and my own role in helping to shape it.  His grounded, practical wisdom reminds us that stories have always been the way forward for humanity, and it is time for us to take more concerted action to counter the dominating master narrative of our most recent history. You will find his words a balm for the soul, evoking a meaningful walk in the woods with a wise elder."
—Doug Paxton, Faculty and Co-Director of the Leadership Center, Saint Mary's College of California

"The title of this book says it all, this is a heart-felt and soul-full book taking us on a journey where we can discover ourselves and achieve leadership success. It is only by finding and acknowledging our authentic truth that we can inspire others to follow. If you want to find out what it takes to be an inspiring and successful leader, step into this world of story."
—Jacob Tas, Executive Director of Operations, Action for Children

"In many spheres of my life, I have learnt that getting the basics right is the platform on which success is built. Geoff's book turns the spotlight on one of the basic activities of leaders and leadership teams - that of storytelling. The book comprehensively covers the theoretical and practical aspects of storytelling. The case studies and associated experiences of other leaders provide rich detail and inspiration. The book is a catalyst for self-improvement which in turn produces better organizational outcomes and a more successful future."
—Sir David Varney, Formerly-Chairman O2, CEO BG, Commissioner HMRC

"This is surely a 'must read' for anyone in a leadership role (which is pretty much everybody!). Geoff's ability to explain narrative leadership is unsurpassed and his passion for storytelling comes through loud and clear in his writing. Understanding and using narrative has completely transformed my approach to leading an organization and influencing others with great success.

Telling the Story will inspire you and equip you to use your inherent storytelling ability to influence those around you in a powerful and memorable way. I could not recommend this book more highly!"
—Libby Hackett, Chief Executive, University Alliance
