Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 8, 2014 1:53 PM

One of the most uncomfortable stories for anyone to share are failure stories. You know -- the time when you really screwed up.


When jobs and careers depend on us putting our best foot forward it seems counter-intuitive to share big mistakes we've made.


Yet people are so hungry for authentic relationships we want to both hear, and share, our failure stories. It makes us human, validates that even when we make mistakes we are still worthy of belonging. And these stories teach us that yes, we can recover.


They are also a terrific antidote for the cascade of sugar-coated 'success' stories we are continually bombarded with.


This article is all about failure stories and how they've even spawned live storytelling evenings -- called "F-Up Nights" like the Moth. Fabulous! Read about how this got started, where events are, and insights about sharing these kinds of stories.


All of this will make you more comfortable sharing your own. Right on!

How To Be A Humble Storyteller: 5 Solid Steps

Once again Forbes writer Nick Morgan has written an article that is spot on -- about speaking and humbleness.


I can hear you saying "But of course, you want to be humble!" Yeah, well all of my clients struggle with one and Nick's post talks about how to get it done.


It's not that my clients are arrogant. In fact, they are the exact opposite. But they all think that sharing their stories is bragging about themselves. They don't want to be arrogant and fear being perceived that way through their storytelling. So we tackle this right up front and I make many of the same points the author does.


Nick wrote some excellent points to consider. And I like the examples he shares of prominent speakers who were not perceived as narcissistic, egotistical, or conceited even though they are/were larger than life.


There is even some current research shared on humbleness and leadership. This is well worth the read if ever you have anxiety about sharing your stories.

What is one of the most powerful leadership/business stories you can share? Yep -- stories of failures, mistakes, and disasters.


Yet they rarely get told in our perfectionist society. Oh to admit we screwed up! Yet sharing stories of your failures humanizes you like no other story. On hearing a mistake story, every listener will say to themselves, "Whew, if he/she can admit to screwing up, so can I." or "Wow, it's not fatal if I make a mistake -- and I'll also learn something valuable in the process."


So take heart -- use these quotes to build your confidence and start sharing a few of your failure stories. They are a good shot in the arm. And thank you to author Ekaterina Walter for putting these quotes together to share with us all.

The easiest thing to do is " to find fault with others". The most difficult is “give thanks always for all things.”

Presentation Zen: George Takei's bold TEDxKyoto Talk | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

What's your story?


"We always hear that this is the era of telling your story. "The world needs to hear your story," our friends keep telling us. But this raises the question—a question I hear perhaps more than any  other: How can I tell my story and not bore the audience? The answer is actually quite simple. Your story is really their story."

Lovely tribute and thought piece about Mandela as a leader who understood forgiveness, generosity and what his core principles were.

Carol Sherriff's curator insight, December 8, 2013 3:32 PM

I was a little cautious reading this the first time. Such tributes and thought pieces can be tacky. This one however does justice to the man and calls us all to find the inner strengths to make a similar contribution to a better world.
