Gathering around the 'story fire'

The storytelling session I described has left me with some wonderful musings around leadership.

One I've been thinking about how to use better is: If the campfire is the oldest "story fire" we know, how can we use the concept of townhalls and conferences to share and/or create stronger stories around the issues driving us to gather in the first place?

In this age of matrixed teams and consensus, it's harder to define leadership. So how can we use story to influence? And how does that story create a point of influence that allows one to influence a decision or been seen as the compelling voice?

A great discussion to have with my mentor and mentorees?
