Leadership Storytelling: A Conduit, A Filter, An Interpreter

I’ve been developing some of the work around Storytelling recently, and playing with some language around our roles as a conduit, a filter, or an interpreter. Sharing this as part of #WorkingOutLoud today.

As a conduit, we facilitate the transmission of intact stories through the system. As a filter, we take out bits that are irrelevant, and share a subset of the original. As an interpreter, we may share nothing of the original, and yet share multiple contextualised stories, each one relevant to a different context or individual.

This may help us to set an expectation of leaders, and also to consider the tools required for each.
