Michelle Auerbach is in the business of saving lives and increasing bravery. When things fall apart, Michelle is the world builder and a community maker who uses all her geeky skills to transform what we’ve got to work with into a more just and loving place where more people get taken care of better. She holds an MFA in prose writing from Naropa University and is completing her PhD in Transformational Leadership with her dissertation on story as a technology for trauma aware change for individuals, organizations, and communities.
Michelle solves problems and creates change through story across diverse contexts. She works with businesses on change management, leadership, and creativity through story. She works with communities on creating social good, connection and working across difference through story. She coaches and teaches individuals through workshops, trainings, and one-on-one explorations. She writes for the New York Times, The London Guardian, and is the author of three books: Resilience: the Life Saving Skill of Story, Alice Modern, and The third Kind of Horse.
During this interview, Michelle and I discuss the following topics:
- Her background and story
- Why storytelling is important in leading generally
- What makes a great storyteller
- How to insert feelings into your stories
- Why conflict is so important in storytelling
- How to improve your storytelling
