12 Timeless Ways to Be a Better Boss in 2022
A pandemic and a difficult economy create the perfect time to get back to the basics.
Over the years, I've worked with dozens of managers and interviewed hundreds more. As I consider how they approach their jobs and how they characterize their successes, I've noticed they tend to adhere to the following rules:

The Power of Storytelling:
Let me tell you a story…
I recently read an article in Forbes by Ester Choy about storytelling. Anyone who knows me, knows I like telling stories, so this article really clicked with me. Read on:
1. Recognize the power of storytelling
We hear stories everyday. Stories are told to give context, to illustrate a point and to connect with audience members. Jeff Bezos started his congressional testimony, not with data or an argument, but with a story. As we notice the power of storytelling, we will start to become more aware of the stories around us.
2. Become a storytelling critic
As we are noticing the stories, we can build up our storytelling toolkit simply by listening well and asking questions. When the keynote speaker at your company retreat starts her time on stage with a story, when your niece is telling you a story about her first year of college, when you catch Storycorps on your local NPR station, ask yourself a few questions. Ask yourself: What worked? What didn’t? Why? Did the story lose you somewhere? Or were you on the edge of your seat the whole time? By critiquing the structure and techniques used in the story, you will learn how you can become a better storyteller.
3. Start your own story library
As leaders we need to be ready with a story for whatever the occasion calls for. Unfortunately, there is no supermarket for story ideas that you can shop when you have the need. Instead, you need to keep your pantry stocked with stories. Many of our stories occur in the day to day, the ordinary moments of our lives. If we don’t pay attention and write down these stories, we often forget them. With something as simple as a spreadsheet or a note-taking app, you can start your own storytelling library. In one column, record the date. Next, write the main gist of the story and any important details you don’t want to forget. In the final column, record what you think this story might be used for — motivating a team, confronting hard conversations, illustrating the power of perseverance, etc. This column may evolve as you go back and work on your story later.
4. Tell more stories
Now that stories are on your radar, say yes to whatever chance you have to tell stories in front of other people. Whether it’s giving a toast at a party, leading a team meeting or seeking out opportunities to practice with others. Here’s to you, 2022, and all the stories you will share.
