In the meantime, read what Reggie (expired link) writes:
There is an art to telling a story. We all know that. We have all listened to someone go on and on and in our minds think of how we could have added a chapter to our dissertation in the time it took the person to finish their story. But as leaders, we can show and teach our staff how to tell a story. Imagine if every monthly staff meeting started out by someone telling a story of something good that happened in the school; something good between a teacher and a student.What story do you have to tell?
Do you, as a leader, use stories in your daily work? If you have a blog, do you tell stories there? Do you think that using stories could help your staff and students be more engaged in their work? Do you think storytelling conjures up images of sitting around the campfire singing songs and having group hugs and therefore isn't useful in the school setting? What do you think? Tell me a story.
