Propelling Careers through Telling Stories about Change
Hansen, Katharine
Business Communication Quarterly, v70 n3 p389-392 2007
Job-seekers who can tell stories about their ability to lead, communicate, and handle organizational change have an advantage over others in the workplace. Although it is important to be able to tell stories about other skills, characteristics, and values, individuals who can showcase their "change skills" will be attractive to employers that seek the competitive and visionary edge. This article presents some stories told by employees about the major causes for changes in their organizations and the change skills that can be communicated as narrative during career transition.
