3 components of killer facilitator guides | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Training programs are the treasure of talent development companies and learning and development departments. They are the shiny coins in their vaults. The programs are handled by wonderful facilitators treasured for their delivery skills and enthusiasm. But, as we all know, people sometimes move on to shinier vaults when offered the opportunity and it is the objective of every company to keep the knowledge safe and sound where it belongs and prevent it from leaving when people move on.One soluti

Trumans's curator insight, February 23, 4:22 PM

As human beings we love a good story, which is why theatre, cinema and TV are so popular. So, how well can you tell the story of your business?  Maybe, it's something to brush up on.
On the other hand, whenever I've visited a new client, gone to have a look at their factory or new office, I enjoy hearing "their story" and they really enjoy telling it. Their business is precious to them , and they've had hurdles to jump to get it to where it is now. So, apart from being a good storyteller, it's important to be a good listener too!

"If you're gonna make connections which are innovative ... you have to not have the same bag of experiences as everyone else does," Jobs said, echoing research on creativity, "or else you're going to make the same connections [as everybody else], and then you won't be innovative, and then nobody will give you an award."

Is Your Leadership Style Right for the Digital Age?

Is Your Leadership Style Right for the Digital Age? | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Advancement in digital technologies has disrupted everything, including leadership styles.

 

Employees want more ownership rather than to follow instruction; customers want to participate in the marketing and development process; and leaders are finding that open and agile organizations are able to maneuver more effectively than organizations where all insight and direction comes from the top. In short, the autocratic Commander, whether brilliant or misguided, just won’t cut it anymore.

Becky Willmoth's curator insight, February 20, 6:08 AM

Within this article four leadership styles are discussed, with a place advocated for each. However in the digital age, the co-creator is the most desirable and rarest of the leadership styles described. Desirable as she or he generates more innovation, growth and profit. Rare as the capabilities required of this leader are complex and borne of authenticity and trust, with a preference for eco, rather than ego, systems.


To support the evolution of the co-creator, leadership development approaches should enable leaders to create broad and diverse networks, encourage them to bridge (or remove) boundaries, offer a space to relinquish control and the desire to create shared value. 

june holley's curator insight, February 20, 7:10 AM

Even though this is directed at businesses, it shows how we are moving to a network age where people want to be part of engaged networks. How do we shift our ideas about leadership to support this larger shift?. 

Shannon Banks's curator insight, February 22, 5:29 PM

Barraged by lists of predictions, trends, and otherwise guesses. Swaddled in our own strategic plans.

So Marketo.com came up with this fab infographic that brings lead nurturing into a narrative arc, and applies story elements to their lead tracking model to make it stick.


Thanks Marketo! I hope all you readers get a kick out of this, and apply this model to gain more business.

Colleague Annette Simmons, author of several ground breaking books on business storytelling, has written this terrific post helping anyone get unstuck about their stories.


This article goes hand-in-hand with another post I curated last week from colleague Shawn Callahan on spotting stories.


What I love about this post is how Simmons starts off -- with the hidden fear we all have about storytelling. She then gives clear directions for finding your stories that will get you over that hump.


Hey, even I freeze up when someone out of the blue asks, "So tell me one of your stories". I like all of Simmon's 4 buckets and use them to break up that frozen place I sometimes find myself in.
