Getting Better at Storytelling: Creative Advice From Ira Glass

Getting Better at Storytelling: Creative Advice From Ira Glass | All things Vistage | Scoop.it
A brief film illustrates words of wisdom from the beloved host of This American Life.

ozziegontang's insight:

Karen Dietz continues to share the gems she collects and the insights that reinforce that we are and have always been storytellers.  Before written history the wisdom and history were passed down orally. Visiting here in Kauai the stories were shared/taught in movement and chant.


We are and have always been story tellers. The stories are thread that link the pearls of wisdom, knowledge, experience and insight together.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 18, 2014 8:43 AM

Ira Glass, the creator and storyteller of This American Life, rocks. The stories he and his guests tell are always interesting if not down right riveting.


But here Glass is not sharing about the mechanics of how to craft a story. In this short video he talks about the creative process, how/when some people short circuit that, and encouragement to get beyond that point.


This video applies to anyone engaged in storytelling -- and anyone engaged in any creative process -- from the arts to engineering.


For storytelling, you get better at sharing stories by practicing, getting better over time, and developing a body of work. Glass hits on all these points, giving us inspiration to both embark on the journey, and to keep going. 


Keep finding and telling your business stories! You will learn tons.

Find the Heart of Your Brand Storytelling with These 6 Questions

Find the Heart of Your Brand Storytelling with These 6 Questions | All things Vistage | Scoop.it

"What’s the first thing you do when meeting someone new? You ask them questions to unveil their story: Where are you from? What kind of work do you do? Do you have children? Do you come here often? Questioning a stranger is more than a polite way to pass time — it’s the core of trying to connect.


Stories make life interesting and give people a way to connect. People crave them, which creates a big opportunity for brand storytelling."
