Storytelling with data

Storytelling with data | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it

As technology changes the way we read, we readers are in a continual state of beta and debate. Can you truly enjoy a novel in the subway on your iPhone? (My husband swears he does). Which time shifting apps are best? (I like Instapaper). How do we make time to read away from the frenzied streams of texts and Tweets that interrupt our screens? (I haven’t a clue).

 

 

But all of the debate about these developments concerns reading words, which we’ve been doing for a long time. A bigger change in reading is emerging as we become better able to meaningfully understand and visualize the data pulsing through our ever connected world. Humans are starting to be able to easily read fast-streaming numbers – data – and we’re going to get better at it.

 

Those numbers can tell compelling stories. Luckily, sophisticated

data visualization techniques and software innovations enable the storytelling, offering actionable new insights about the world around us. And it’s just beginning, because now the world’s machines—jet engines, gas turbines, medical devices in hospitals, refrigerators, cars—are coming online on a huge scale, joining the billions of humans already connected.

Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it

Have you ever worked with a very charismatic leader?


If so, then it's likely that almost everyone in the organization liked, trusted, and admired this person.
People listened when she talked, colleagues supported her ideas, and talented people wanted to join her team. In short, everyone wanted to be around this person!

 

Charisma is something that many people believe you're born with. However, this isn't the case – you can become more charismatic, and we'll explore how you can develop charisma in this article

 

Defining Charisma

Michel CEZON's curator insight, March 2, 2014 12:28 PM

Charisma is a collection of traits and behaviors that help you appeal to other people. Charismatic people are often successful, and people are naturally drawn to them. They retain the best talent in their teams, and people listen to their ideas.

Because charisma is a collection of behaviors, you can learn it. Work on developing empathy, self-confidence, and assertiveness. Be aware of what your body language is saying, and do your best to give people a genuine smile when you're around them.

Also, make sure that you use your charisma the right way: don't use it to influence someone to do something that is against his or her own best interests.

Woman's Homemade Sauerkraut Highlights Cottage Food Fight in AZ

Woman's Homemade Sauerkraut Highlights Cottage Food Fight in AZ | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it
Sandy Boyce and her husband have been making homemade sauerkraut for years by fermenting cabbage purchased from local farmers near their home in Sedona, Arizona.

 

Most regulations are imposed to safeguard the public .  Good manufacturing practices (GMP) help to do this.

  

I suggest that MIcro-entrepreneurs like the Boyce's contact their State's  Cooperative Extension Office for assistance in starting a food business, food safety, and food formulation and processing. 

They are usually backed by specialists who can provide expertise in these areas.

The Business Case for Empathy | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it

For many business owners, empathy may seem like a soft business skill, however as it can serve as a catalyst for new growth, innovation and employee engagement,  it is a trait well worth developing and deploying as often as possible.

 

Displaying empathy, requires a business owner to spend much more time in face to face contact, rather that relying on data compiled by others to drive decision making.

 

This excellent article, makes the business case for empathy, and it outlines steps you can take to ensure that your business is more empathetic towards its customers and employees.

How Effective Leaders Talk (and Listen)

How Effective Leaders Talk (and Listen) | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it
Boris Groysberg and Michael Slind, authors of "Talk, Inc.: How Trusted Leaders Use Conversation to Power Their Organizations."...

 

I have to laugh -- now we are teaching leaders how to have conversations -- something we do as naturally as breathing!

 

But OK -- I get it. When you are the CEO it can be a lonely place at the top. And how do you start having meaningful conversations with staff without scaring them all to heck? And what are the risks to the leader when they engage in these kinds of conversations?

 

I've been saying for years that organizational change and employee engagement happen through conversations. Seems to finally be gaining some traction. I work with execs on their listening and storytelling skills, never thinking I'd have to address the ins-and-outs of conversations. But hey -- the insights here are solid and I can see what I need to add when I coach leaders.

 

This is a podcast that covers these main points and more. It is also a promo for the author's new book, which you might also be interested in.

 

If you work with organizations and senior executives, you will gain some decent ah-hahs!
