Once Upon a Business

Mirasee FM

Story Coach Lisa Bloom is the go-to expert on business story-telling. For decades she’s helped entrepreneurs master this important but overlooked skill. In Once Upon a Business, she’s turning her attention from the craft of storytelling to the stories themselves — the densely evocative folk and fairy tales that we all are exposed to regardless of our culture. In each episode of Once Upon a Business, Lisa reads a fairy or folk tale and then extracts rich business lessons that are applicable for entrepreneurs of all stripes. As she puts it, a tiny tale of nine sentences can encompass worlds.

This special episode features Lisa’s guest appearance on To Lead Is Human hosted by Sharon Richmond. Lisa tells a story of monkeys trying to rescue the moon — which she and Sharon discuss as a metaphor for the danger of not checking assumptions and ignoring quieter voices in the organization.
