Storytelling for Leaders is themed around Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Based on a true story, Moby Dick is perhaps the greatest leadership story ever told and its prescient messages about mental health, disability, racial injustice, LGBTQ and climate mean it has never been more relevant – there’s even a pandemic.
The class includes a live psychology experiment, a practical exercise and topical examples. It is designed to stimulate, inspire and leave you buzzing with ideas.
