Once upon a time there was a leader who realized that the best and fastest way to become a successful and truly authentic leader was to learn how to be a master storyteller. And she/they led happily ever after…

“Data can persuade people, but it doesn’t inspire them to act; to do that, you need to wrap your vision in a story that fires the imagination and stirs the soul.” – Harrison Monarth

Skilled storytelling can help you ace an interview or talk yourself out of a speeding ticket, but far beyond that, storytelling is a high-impact communication skill that will serve you in your role, in your relationship building, and in your ability to be a high-impact, authentic leader. Olga Selina, VP IT at Baxter, will discuss how telling stories that intertwine personal and work experiences can transform a leader’s relationship with their staff (yes, she has a few stories of her own to tell).

– How to use storytelling to be more easily and effectively share who you are and increase your emotional intelligence
– Ways your stories can inspire, support, share context, and create a team ethos
– How storytelling can help you incorporate humor into your work environment

– In a leadership role of any kind
– Looking for new and more effective ways to communicate and connect to your team
– Someone who loved storytime in Kindergarten



Mark Hattas has, amongst other accomplishments, started, built and sold a $20 million tech company. He was later diagnosed with Bipolar I Disorder and told there was no cure. Mark didn’t believe that prognosis, searched for solutions, found them and is fully healthy now. Part of Mark’s mission is to support everyone in finding their path to optimal health. He does this through Journey’s Dream and Rookha Group, both of which he co-founded and where he uses his experience to help others as a guide. He also is a speaker, author, teacher, and advocate for all people living healthy and vibrant lives free from mental illness. He envisions a future where mental illness is seen as the gift it is and our society supports transformation to optimal health consistently.
