Show notes
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small and large acts of leadership that help shape their lives.
In Episode 30, Jessica Tower explains how poetry can help business professionals, how one experience can change a culture, and how you can strengthen your storytelling.
Jessica consults with organizations about talent management. She explains how stories can connect people, strengthen cultures, and affect the bottom line. Through Tower & Company, Jessica helps clients develop their story talent.
What we learn from one discipline may help us in another discipline. For Jessica, studying poetry improved her skills in business.
Jessica shares two stories: one is about how an icebreaker exercise affected managers, their teams, and customers at a local office. The other is about how a fireside chat helped alleviate the fear of a nation.
A way to connect with others is through storytelling. Jessica talks about one common misstep professionals make with their stories.
