Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

Ever wonder why I tell stories in the talks I give?

When someone asks me how I got involved with the future of work, I could give statistics and say, “13% of employees around the world are engaged and I had bad jobs working for other people, and now I'm doing what I'm doing.”

Which one do you think has more impact?

When you think about great communicators, one thing they all have in common is storytelling.

People have been telling stories since the dawn of time.

It's why when you were a kid, you wanted your parents to read you a story before bed.

It's why your kids now want you to read them a story before a bed.

We all love stories. It’s just part of being human.
