Invisible Stories: Write to be Seen

Jul 13, 2021

Today’s Invisible Stories guest is leadership expert and author David O’Brien. David is the president of WorkChoice Solutions, LLC, a nationally recognized provider of leadership and team effectiveness consulting services. His corporate consulting career spans over twenty years and includes key leadership roles within a variety of industries including Aerospace, Healthcare, and Financial Services. He also works with many small and emerging market leaders to bring about lasting organizational and leadership transformation. David’s books, The Navigator’s Handbook and The Navigator’s Compass share his formula for leadership excellence, and using a combination of personal reflection, story telling, and consulting case studies, David explores some of leadership's most pressing challenges. He provides proven processes and methodologies for helping leaders at all levels to expand their influence and impact.


In this podcast, David shares how he took his years of corporate leadership experience and adapted it for his two books. His goal is to show that anyone can be a leader, not just in their career but in their lives. David and I discuss: 

  • Learning to let go of timelines and self-imposed restrictions to writing, and instead just allow the creativity to flow the way it naturally wants to. 
  • How leadership and storytelling really go hand-in-hand: part of what makes an effective leader is the ability to share stories, to draw people in with them and compel others into action through those stories. 
  • How writing a purpose statement at the beginning of your author journey may help to remind you what you are writing for, and who you are writing for, and can ultimately help you overcome imposter syndrome.
