Ariana Amorim's insight:

This is about how to be a better storyteller and how we can use narrative to improve our lives.

 

Powerful question here:

 

Do you think that storytelling is always after the fact, that it’s how we interpret our lives, or do you think there’s something to learn from stories and the principles of dramatic structure that’s forward-looking, that we can use to guide our lives?

"Once again this shows the power of the mind to create a story to make sense of its surroundings. Your brain is happier to believe there are connections between the things that it sees. This is a vital insight for your brand experience. If you do not control the story, your audience will find their own and maybe it’s not the story you want to tell."


Via David McQueen
Ariana Amorim's insight:

This article tells us about the Kuleshov Effect and its implications on brand experience. I think there's more to it and that's why I rescoop it here.

 

The Kuleshov Effect is a film editing (montage) effect demonstrated by Russian filmmaker Lev Kuleshov in the 1910s and 1920s. 

 

In the dawn of the 20th century, cinema was a new art form, comprising many techniques that hadn’t been developed. The elements of editing were among the ones that had not been studied to the needed extension. Lev Kuleshov was among the first to indicate the power of film editing and to dissect the effects of juxtaposition.

 

Kuleshov put a film together, showing the expression of an actor, edited together with a plate of soup, a girl in a coffin and a woman on a recliner. Audiences praised the subtle acting, showing an almost imperceptible expression of hunger, grief, or lust in turn. The reality, of course, is that the same clip of the actor's face was re-used, and the effect is created entirely by its juxtaposition with other images.

 

Through his experiments and research, Kuleshov discovered that depending on how shots are assembled the audience will attach a specific meaning or emotion to it.The implication is that viewers brought their own emotional reactions to this sequence of images, and then moreover attributed those reactions to the actor, investing his impassive face with their own feelings.

 

So, can we recognize emotion without context? How do we reframe the stories we tell others and ourselves?

 

The stories that we tell ourselves are powerful. And yet, if you think about it, they are, in fact, just stories. 

 

Once we realize that, it then becomes possible to conclude that we could,  tell ourselves other stories –  stories that make space for our own growth, stories that build us up instead of break us down.

The Kuleshov effect. I didn't know this term, but of course it is true: Context plays a defining role in how we interpret narrative.

This is one of the best descriptions I have seen of how our internal stories can infect our interactions and relationships. Although Brown talks about this unconscious storytelling with relation to personal relationships, the same principles can and should be applied to our business relationships.


Brown shows us how to get ahead of these internal stories by checking our emotions. A very helpful read!

Ariana Amorim's insight:

The author of this article, S. Chris Edmonds, shares a few incredibly important points for leaders sharing stories. The first one is that stories help guide behavior. Tell the wrong stories and you'll be sorry.

 

On the other hand, if a leader knows the right stories to share, the bottom line increases. Gotta love that. Makes you wonder why more CEOs are paying attention this. And if you are a CEO who does -- yay!

 

I will also point out that sharing stories is not enough. Rewards and acknowledgement are critical for success. You'll see what I mean when you read the article.

 

What I also really like in this post are the 2 stories Edmonds shares to make his point. Not only are they good stories, they drive home the advice he brings to the table. Enjoy.

What do Narrative Coaches Do?

What do Narrative Coaches Do? | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Narrative coaching is a body of knowledge that draws on millennia of ancient wisdom, a century of social science thinking, and breakthroughs in domains like the neurosciences to create an approach to development fitting for our times. It is a mindful, experiential, and holistic approach to helping people shift their stories about themselves, about others, and about life itself in order to create results that matter to them. Narrative coaches take a more “decentered” position in their role, a more nondirective approach to the coaching process, and a more contextual view of coachees’ identity, development and behavior.

"We all have one particularly important story that we tell ourselves, about ourselves: our "life story," which helps us to organize our experiences and give us a sense of self, even dictating our behavior in some cases. We're constantly updating, amending and adding to this story as we encounter new experiences.

 

By understanding how we create these stories and how they are structured, we can alter our own stories and rewrite our own scripts in ways that improve our lives."

David, on Life as Story | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

“There’s a huge amount of uncertainty that accompanies this transition, as you try to figure out what that new story is. There were points at which I felt overwhelmed by that. It felt like things were moving too slowly. Or somebody had said ‘No’ to something. Or I bumped into somebody who tried to reinforce the old story. Or wanted me to strike that sort of Faustian bargain of ‘The new story is all well and good but if you just come back to what you used to do, then for a short period of time, while you’re in this transition phase, it’ll just make life easier.’ Points where I lost faith, my ability to tell myself the new story, and actually live it. It felt too hard. It felt like climbing up a very steep rock face. The next handhold wasn’t there. I couldn’t find the next handhold to easily grasp onto and let go of. I began to think maybe I was doing the wrong thing. But when I thought about that, really reflected on that, the pain of going forward was far less than the pain of going back. I knew I REALLY didn’t want to go back. I knew that something would happen in the moving forward.”
