I just watched this powerful video of Monica Lewinsky's TED talk and I was riveted. As she shares bits and pieces of her story, she weaves together what her story can mean for us individually, and as a culture.


Lewinsky bravely touches on storytelling ethics, our gleeful perpetuation of dark stories that lead to great harm, how to use stories to build empathy, and taking control of your own narrative.


The business of storytelling -- and business storytelling -- has an underside. Lewinsky sheds light in the dark and shows us a way home. Watch this video now -- you'll be glad you did. It will make you a far better and more humane storyteller IMHO.

The dangers of "willful blindness"--Story, Change, & Empowerment

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

There are several points of view from which that this is an extraordinary video... The three main aspects are (1) the notion and broadness and generality of the notion "willful blindness", (2) the morality of the stories (to respect those who dare to stand up, as whistle blowers, etc,) in life, in society, in companies, and (3) how to use stories in a presentation for maximal effect... each of them are extremely imporant for all of us, though I'm not very optimistic of the real effect of this small video... but at least who will see it or a part of it (the total lenght is 14 min...) cannot say after that he/she is not aware of this... and that's already soemthing... the memes are born so...:-)))

Miklos, you have made fabulous points. Many thanks for sharing them. Our voices may be small, but if we keep sharing, more people will see these. If one person gains benefit from these videos, then the world is a better place already.

No need for me to add anything.  Just view Karen Dietz's curated insights and links to reflect on one's own power.  With Values, if I know what you stand for; I will also know what you won't stand for.


I have been blessed with wonderful peers, mentors and teachers during my 27 years as a Vistage Chair. They  have similar shared Values of: Trust, Caring, Challenge, and Growth. And with these people it has always been based on Dan Ariely's Social Norm the foundation being Trust and Relationship.  See the Youtube: Dan Ariely: The Cost of Social Norms.
