Storymasters recently created a thought provoking internal video designed to ignite conversations about leadership at TD. The video opens with role model managers who think they’ve been invited to talk about the value of everyday leadership. It turns out that the employees these very managers have mentored and influenced, end up stealing the show. While we can’t show you the actual video, we can show you some of the responses TD received from employees across North America who watched it. Check out the TD Staff Feedback tab below.
Our first round of interviews captured poignant stories of role model TD employees who, at some point in their career, reached a personal or professional crossroad. Each needed to make behavioural change, to quit or continue, or to take on new responsibility in their workplace. The stories revealed how input from their manager helped steer them in the right direction. Our conversations were captured “Errol Morris-style” (looking directly into the camera).
For the second round of interviews, we used a bit of a ruse. We invited those employee managers to share personal perspectives on leadership on-camera. Just when they were getting passionate about the value of good leadership, we surprised them with a personal “thank you” from their protégé. When edited together, the stories were candid, genuine, and very emotional testaments to the power of everyday leadership
