Novelist and journalist Rebecca Abrams explains how understanding the architecture of story-telling is central to good leadership, and explores ways of harnessing the central elements in strong storytelling to the service of strong and effective leadership. Effective leaders need effective stories, about themselves, their organisations and their product.  But as a leader, how do you know if the stories you are telling are having the effect you want?  What is the plot of your leadership story?  Who are the main protagonists in your story?  Where are you in the arc of your leadership narrative?  Does it even have an arc?  Find out how to tell if your leadership story needs a tweak, a second draft, or a radical rewrite.
