What role do stories play in your company?

By June 6, 2017 No Comments

I have written about David Marquet before. He is an retired Navy submarine Captain who is now a management consultant. His philosophy and EOS are very complimentary. I highly recommend his book Turn The Ship Around!. I wrote a blog about the book here. He offers a weekly leadership nudge which you can subscribe to on his website. This week’s nudge was entitled Stories Create Culture.

It is an exact compliment to we EOS Implementers asking our clients to gather stories about their employees who demonstrate their Core Values by their actions. Both David Marquet and Gino Wickman understand that awareness of your culture as expressed in your Core Values is driven home best by listening or reading stories about how others demonstrated the values.

David suggests a longer term benefit of gathering these stories in this short video. If you can’t see the video below you can find it on YouTube here.

One of the EOS series of books which is a great compliment to Marquet’s book is How to be a Great Bossby Gino Wickman and Rene Boer. You can find it here . Just scroll down.
