14. 5 Ways to Improve Workplace Culture through Story with David Pullan and Prina Shah

How often is it that workplace culture change is a disaster?  We hear more negative stories of change, than we do positive.  It need not be the case.

Change can be supported by applying the additional super skill of storytelling! 

About today’s episode:  I speak with story telling expert, David Pullan, about: 5 Ways to Improve Workplace Culture through Story.  

  • I ask about David’s story: who you are, what you do and why! 
  • Storytelling as an important Leadership skill to enlist change and develop the org culture
  • How story telling at work is… 
  1.   a way to build employee engagement,   
  2.   a way to empower change (storytelling through data) 
  3.   a way to build relationships 
  4.   a way to make things stick / make meetings memorable (if we can imagine it in our mind, it sticks better and 
  5.   a way to make things fun!
