Murder on the Grass: Leadership Stories from Rwanda,

We tend to use storytelling to articulate ethical norms, and the stories we tell define our leaderly and managerial style.

Leigh Hafrey walks participants through contrasting stories, using the film Hotel Rwanda and three related articles or book excerpts.
