Movies are WILDLY popular with readers of this site. As I began to attempt to understand why, Joe Sangl gave me great insight into this trend.
He said, “Brian, movies tell stories. Stories move people.” And that is what leaders are about – Moving people from A to B. Moving people from where they are to a brighter and more fulfilling future.
Leaders, nothing will create positive momentum and move people more than telling stories. Stories show those you serve where they fit into a something larger than themselves. Stories also allow everyone to process information from their point of view.
Next weekend I will be seeing Edge Of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise. I expect it to be one of June’s most read leadership posts as well.
