Smithsonian Organizational Storytelling Weekend: April 15-17, 2010

Narrative is a primary tool when it comes to change leadership. I was interviewed on Friday by Tom Cox of Leadership Radio. You can listen to the interview here. As soon as I get a copy, I’ll post it, so you can download it.  You can read Tom’s extensive notes from the show on his blog, Tom on Leadership.

THE PLACE TO GO if you want to learn about applied storytelling is the Smithsonian Storytelling Weekend in Washington, DC, April 15-17, 2010. Read all about it and sign up on this page.

In the weeks ahead I will profile speakers. It’s an amazing line up. Friday at the Smithsonian includes:
