One of the most interesting sessions I attended at the recent SHRM Talent Management Conference in Chicago was SRO only, titled Tell an Epic Story Using Narrative Intelligence to Recruit, Retrain, Re-brand.

Welcome to a special Leadership Channel Podcast on TotalPicture, I'm your host Peter Clayton. Joining me today is bestselling author, keynote speaker, and international expert in Narrative Intelligence, Steve Donahue.

As a young man Steve crossed the Sahara Desert overland. Decades later he embarked on a 3 year - 72,000 mile global odyssey to find a new story and a reason to tell it. These incredible journeys inspire his work to create inspired leadership in organizations as a motivational speaker, leadership trainer and consultant.

Quoting from his website, "Like the heroes of epic poems, leaders must thrive in constant change and be completely engaged in their journey. They must also be on a quest that creates its own compelling story. Steve shows how to acquire a legendary narrative that employees and customers want to play a role in and be the heroes of. Using cutting edge techniques from the emerging field of Narrative Intelligence he demonstrates how the oldest stories we know are the best templates we have to change, engage and inspire."

Steve has worked with more than 500 global organizations to revolutionize change leadership and ignite employee engagement. I think you'll enjoy my conversation with Steve Donahue. Because, let's face it. Being able to tell an epic story is an awesome skill to develop!

"Talent is not enough. HR professionals need to establish organizations that leverage individual talent through collective actions. The whole organization should be greater than the separate parts.

By creating dynamic systems that leverage talent throughout the organization, Ulrich believes TA leadership can create a unified whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. In the long run, that will give your company a competitive edge.

Jay Golden, founder Retellable - TotalPicture Radio interview with Peter ClaytonJay Golden

"The ability to find, shape, and share your own most essential stories -- told one-to-one or one to many -- is one of your greatest assets as a leader." Jay Golden

"As a recruiter you are more than just a 'closer.' You have to create connection, deeply understand your candidates, and draw them along on an inspiring journey. And you represent the core culture of your company in a way that no one else quite can. As such, a well-honed collection of stories will be a critical resource for your success."

Jay Golden is an author, entrepreneur, and storytelling coach. Since founding Wakingstar (now Retellable) in 2009, Jay has crafted stories, led trainings, and coached leaders for clients such as Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, the Rainforest Action Network, and Esalen Institute.

Not only is his company called Retellable he has written a book called Retellable, How Your Essential Stories Unlock Power and Purpose.

I met Jay through Jonathan Duarte the founder of GO Jobs and the GoBe bot, and Rob Kelly, CEO of Ongig. And of course, you'll find links to their stories on the sidebar.

According to Jay, "If you are shifting a paradigm, innovating as an entrepreneur, or guiding a team, you can benefit from a treasury of essential stories that you love to tell-and can adapt for different audiences and for different purposes. The key is to have a stash of core, Retellable stories."

Welcome to a Leadership Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio, I'm your host, Peter Clayton, and joining me today is Jay Golden. In retrospect, I'm not sure if this was an interview or a therapy session. You decide.
