A story

Being a leader is all about getting a story straight.

Especially in the face of uncertainty. Especially in the times we’re living through.

Trying times? We’re currently living in existential crisis times. We’re living through a crisis of meaning.

People need help figuring out the right way forward. Politics is letting everyone down. Science is letting everyone down. Business is letting everyone down. Everyone is lost.

Your job as a leader is to get your story straight and narrate the journey. Help people make sense and meaning of things, especially in the face of constant disruption.

What people need is discourse. A point of view. Optimism. A way to look at the world that reassures them amidst all the unknowns.

A story that can point the way forward through all the chaos.

A story that can make the world.
