“Stories constitute the single most powerful weapon in a leader’s arsenal.” 

– Dr. Howard Gardner, Professor, Harvard University



As we progress from the information age through knowledge work into the age of wisdom, Storytelling acts like a superpower in anything we do at any stage in our lives, and in every role we play as individuals, in family and community, and in our careers in the corporate or in entrepreneurial journeys.


It helps in Personal Branding and influence, bridging the personal narrative to meaning and purpose out in the bigger world. Stories are what we tell, what we learn and what we become in the eyes of the beholder. 


Storytelling helps us shift our personal narratives and changes the sense of powerlessness and victimhood inside our head, into power and perspective to make a difference with our personal stories. Storytelling is also a tool to connect – between a mother and her children, between an influencer and her community, and between a leader and her people. It gives us the rare power of touching other lives, moving other people and energising a whole community into changing the way they think and act. 


The very act of Storytelling makes us believe in happy endings. To want to become a better person. 


And help us become one.
