Course Description

When leaders connect with others on a human level, their communication becomes more influential and they are more likely to develop a loyal following from colleagues and employees. Yet some leaders struggle to find this human connection and they continue to rely on more top-down/impersonal forms of communication. By recognizing how their own identities contribute to the organizational identity, leaders can use storytelling as a tool to expand their influence, create a more cohesive culture, and achieve organizational goals.
