The Michigan Model of Leadership: empathy, drive, integrity, courage.
What is Story Lab?
This self-authoring, story crafting, and storytelling initiative brings Michigan Ross’s brand of leadership to life on stage. It begins with a launch event featuring stories by students and model storytellers. From there, a select group of students will attend a retreat where they'll hone their skills in voice, craft, and delivery. Story Lab wraps up with an exciting community celebration, Ross Diaries, featuring an evening of storytelling with students, faculty, and alumni.
Story Lab is co-created with the Ross Design + Business Club.
Listen to the Story Lab on the Ross Business Beyond Usual podcast. Storytellers featured include:
- Sneha Bhattacharyya recapping her nightmarish first job after undergrad, which taught her a valuable lesson about speaking up in the face of injustice; and,
- Claudia Ludlow Trejo discussing how she was forced into the strange and dangerous world of childhood kickboxing.
