ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the use of storytelling as a business tool. Many leaders use storytelling very effectively in communicating their vision or demonstrating the need for change, and it has been a mainstay of the coaching profession for some time, but mentioning storytelling to the average manager will not receive any reaction. It is seen as soft and out of step with the spirit of the times, the author said.
