The authors explore the way in whichÂ the Steam Engine organizationalÂ model is no longer offering jobÂ satisfaction to its members preciselyÂ (and paradoxically) because membersÂ are not being enabled, and are oftenÂ being prevented, from deliveringÂ what the organization most needsÂ from them: self-direction, innovation,Â leadership and heartfelt commitment.
The art of corporate storytellingAuthor:Â Robert Mighall A coherent story can make you better understood, believed in and trusted. So why is the business world only just discovering its power?

Robert Mighall explains why story has a universal power to move people. He shows how to build a compelling core story, and apply that across a range of communications. And he demonstrates how trends in social media and content marketing are making this most ancient communication art ever more urgently relevant.
