    Storytelling is one of the oldest tools used since cavemen to share information across generations. It is also an invaluable Leadership Development tool that can be used to help on-the-job learning.  Storytelling helps leaders internalize, reflect and intentionally think about their actions. It also helps shape culture and establish trust with vulnerability. This keynote covers how to take one of the oldest tools for development and use it in innovative ways to help leaders be better than yesterday.
