"Storytelling That Drives Bold Change" by Frances X. Frei and Anne Morriss summary

"Storytelling That Drives Bold Change" is an article by Frances X. Frei and Anne Morriss, published in the November-December 2023 issue of Harvard Business Review¹. The authors present an effective approach to crafting a compelling narrative that can drive organizational change¹.

The article outlines four key steps to crafting such a story:

1. Understand your story so well that you can describe it in simple terms.

2. Honor the past to acknowledge the journey that has led to the present.

3. Articulate a persuasive mandate for change to convince others of the need for change.

4. Lay out a rigorous and optimistic path forward to provide a clear direction for the change¹.

After crafting the story, the next step is to get others behind your story. The authors suggest using emotions to bring the story to life and help drive employees’ commitment to change¹. They also recommend promoting your narrative aggressively, sharing it wherever the opportunity arises—in speeches, interviews, town hall meetings, one-on-ones—and incorporating it into different formats, from videos to images to guidebooks¹.
