Episode Description

Every great leader is a great storyteller. And the first and most important part of being a great storyteller is knowing what stories to tell. After conducting over 300 one-on-one interviews with CEOs and executives in 25 countries around the world, author Paul Smith compiled a list of the most important ten stories any leader needs to be able to tell at a moment's notice. The 10 Great Stories Leaders Tell explores those 10 stories, and provides tips for you to find and craft your own, all in a short, easy, one-hour read. Each story is explored in its own chapter. Any leader who can tell those stories is far more likely to get their organization to go where they want it to go.

“Your Evolving Leadership Journey” is for anyone who believes continuous learning is part of the ongoing leadership journey.

“Companies that did business from a foundation of love and purpose and practiced servant leadership produced a 1026 percent return to shareholders over a ten-year period, eight times more than the so-called Good to Great companies.” (Coetzer, 2019)

With a slant towards servant leadership, Tom interviews contemporary authors to drill down on topics such as long-distance leadership, resilience, clarity, culture, developing others, individual behavior, persuasion, managing up, spiritual best practices, character, values, trust and more.
