I received this book in the mail on Friday from one of the authors in Australia with a nice inscribed note on the inside title page handwritten by Yamini Naidu. She and Gabrielle Dolan founded a company - One Thousand and One - specializing in storytelling with intention of helping other leaders tell their stories. They've done a great job of it.
As leaders, we share stories (values, mission, purpose) with our Sailors. You know that you have achieved some level of success when you hear your Sailors retelling your stories which they have made their own.
They can't tell those stories if you don't share your mission, value and purpose with them. Build trust - share your story.
