Storytelling: A Powerful Tool For Board Development

Like any work team, directors of any organization--nonprofits as well as corporations--function much better when the individuals get to know one another on a personal level. Storytelling is a very effective tool for developing personal relationships.

Research has shown conclusively that when people discover shared values,they're drawn closer together, develop deeper respect and appreciation for one another, support one another better, and work more effectively toward common goals.

When I work with boards to introduce the members to the practice of deliberate storytelling, and then coach individuals on shaping and telling their own stories, they're amazed by the transformative power of storytelling.

If you serve on a board and would like to learn how storytelling can help you bring your mission into sharper focus, give me a call! I'd love to help you expand your circle of supporters who will help you achieve your goals.
