How To Create The Culture You Want With Stories

How To Create The Culture You Want With Stories | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
What stories are told in your organization today? Are you aware of them? Do they reinforce your desired culture or do they inspire undesired actions?

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 Your 'Life Story' Really Says About You | Huffington Post

What Your 'Life Story' Really Says About You | Huffington Post | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"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."

 

Read the full article to find out more about these six principles from narrative psychology to help you better understand your 'life story.'

Your story is constantly evolving, becoming more positive later in life.Your present emotions color your entire narrative.We conceive of our life story in the structure of a novel.Successful people's stories contain themes of redemption.Your stories are dictated by social and cultural norms.You can take control of your own stories.

What I like about this article is that it points out that our stories are always open to interpretation and adaption.  They're never really final if you don't want them to be.  It's good to be reminded of that.

Debra Manchester's curator insight, November 19, 2013 11:22 AM

Are you the hero or heroine in your story or are you a victim?

Stop Trying to Change The World: Find a Better Mission

Stop Trying to Change The World: Find a Better Mission | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

“Helping others to reach their potential” is not your life’s mission.

Neither is it “to make the world a better place.”
Nor is it to “teach others how to grow and transform their lives.”

Sorry. I know, I might be upsetting you right now.

Just bear with me…

The above statements are descriptions of your potential action and impact. But there not missions.

Lianne Picot's curator insight, February 7, 9:43 AM

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!

How to Tell Your 'Story of Self' | BillMoyers.com | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Storytelling is one of the most powerful tools that organizers and movement builders have at their disposal -- and personal stories often have the most impact.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

Great article!

"Focus on one key story — one event or one place or one important relationship. Take some time to think about the elements of your story in the context of the challenge, choice and outcome. In this case, the outcome might also be the thing you learned, in addition to what actually happened.

Remember, the purpose of telling your story of self is to begin to create common ground with your audience by sharing a story that reflects the values that brought you to work on your given issue, and where those values come from."

 

These tips for constructing your "story of self" can be used as an insightful coaching tool. Finding your "story of self" through this frame can help you:

 

- get a better understanding of your core values,

- identify your main challenges (the challenges you faced and the ones you're about to face in the future),

-  dig deeper on the specific choices you made or the options you have now

- learn from the outcomes you got and plan for the one's you want to get.
