Dealing With Change & The Value Of Stories

Dealing With Change & The Value Of Stories | Business Industry | Scoop.it

"We are vehemently faithful to our own view of the world, our story. We want to know what new story we’re stepping into before we exit the old one. We don’t want an exit if we don’t know exactly where it is going to take us, even – or perhaps especially – in an emergency. This is so, I hasten to add, whether we are patients or psychoanalysts."

Great article SHAWN COYNE! Thank you very much. Even though it is difficult for anyone to say what he would have done in an emergency situation like 9/11 since the emotions have to be felt to fire the engine and take any action, it is very interesting to still reflect and think about these type of situations for sure. What I believe is the most important thing for us human beings is to understand the value of life more than the value of things. Wealth is related with that fact, because wealth is related to freedom, love, compassion and understanding of the purpose of our own life

Many thanks to fellow curator Gregg Morris for finding and sharing this article! 


I'm working with an organizaiton right  now in the throws of huge change on multiple levels. It is a wild time and helping them find, frame, and share their stories is just beginning.


This article is a terrific place to start for thinking about the stories people need to hear when facing change. And the story shared in the post is powerful indeed.


In fact, this article fits very nicely into another recent article I posted by Rafe Martin on the importance of folklore and stories. Stories -- specifically folk tales -- help us respond to change, providing mental structures and pathways for us to follow when change happens.


As we all know, change is constant. Storytelling is a huge help. I hope you gain lots of great insights from this article and it gets you thinking about your next steps.

You can also use it to coach yourself through the challenges of dealing with changes beyond your control.  In the ICN Executive MBA change management module, we combine this tool with others such as story-telling in a co-learning approach.

Photoshop alternatives | Free photo-editing software for visual storytelling

Photoshop alternatives | Free photo-editing software for visual storytelling | Business Industry | Scoop.it

Adobe’s Photoshop is the gold standard when it comes to photo-editing software – the preferred tool for many graphic designers and photographers. But many of the complex features that once only a Photoshop pro could do, can now be achieved using basic, free software that comes with your computer or downloaded from the Web. Think cropping, resizing, color adjustments, filters, red-eye removal, and automatic enhancements.

 

In fact, a lot of useful photo-editing features are built into online photo-sharing sites like Google+ and Flickr.However, what if you want to quickly apply one or two effects without having to become a Photoshop guru? We’ve found and tested a few online alternatives that won’t require you to fire up any photo-editing apps....

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 16, 2013 2:47 PM

This article by Jon Gelberg draws valid and important similarities between content marketing and face-to-face networking -- and it all revolves around storytelling.


In other words, whether you are sharing content on the Internet or making connections at events around town, if you are not sharing stories you will not have the impact you desire.


I particularly like that Gelberg connects netoworking and content marketing because it is so easy to think they are separate activities. As he points out however, the bridge to both is storytelling.


If you are not crazy about networking, this article kinds of puts it into perspective. Forget the elevator speech -- just create opportunities to share your biz stories.


And if you are not into content marketing -- then where have you been?? Creating and sharing your businesses stories -- and the stories of your customers -- generates amazing growth.


Enjoy the tips in this article and learning more about how to work with your stories.

Gee Whiz 2 ROI: Why you need your own project manager| Kinaxis Supply Chain Expert Community

Gee Whiz 2 ROI: Why you need your own project manager| Kinaxis Supply Chain Expert Community | Business Industry | Scoop.it

One of the big mistakes made by folks buying technologies is thinking that the vendor or the VAR (value-added reseller) can provide the project manager for their implementation project.

 

They cannot, if you really mean a project “manager.”

 

And they cannot for a very good reason—a reason with which even you, as an executive or manager in your own firm, probably agree. But the reason probably don’t agree with what I’ve said so far is because you have never really thought the matter through completely.

 

What is a project manager?

 

The IT industry is shot-through with wrong usage or incorrect application of the term “project manager.”

 

You see, the term “manager” implies direct authority.

 

Yet, project managers almost never have any direct authority over the resources provided by the client to direct these resource to change their priorities (e.g. give priority to project efforts over their day-to-day activities at the firm), to assign new or different client resources to the project when some project task falls behind schedule or fails to come up to expectations in some other way, or to take other actions that may directly affect client-supplied project resources.

 

A real and effective “project manager” must have direct authority over the resources assigned to the project. Otherwise, his or her role is not a “manager.” He may be fulfilling some other role. He might be a project “watchdog,” reporting progress or lack thereof to senior management. She might be a project “coordinator,” doing her best to coordinate the resources assigned to the project. But, in the absence of authority to take direct action to effectively deliver the project’s desired outcomes, the so-called “project manager” cannot truly be a “project manager.”

Possibly you are a perfectionist who likes to scrub every nook and cranny of the pool yourself to be sure not an inch is missed. Most people would prefer to avoid this time consuming chore and spend that time enjoying the pool. If that sounds more like you, then you may want to invest in an automatic pool cleaner. There are several models on the market, and your needs may be better met by one type or another.

The Systems That Power the Year's Most Sustainable Buildings

The Systems That Power the Year's Most Sustainable Buildings | Business Industry | Scoop.it

Only a decade ago, sustainable building techniques were fairly rare, a fringe culture on the periphery of mainstream architecture. But with Stephen Colbert interviewing radically green architects like Mitchell Joachim and Passive House buildingspopping up in New York City, that's all changing very quickly.

For concrete evidence of the shift, look no further than this year's Top Ten Green Buildings, an annual list chosen by the American Institute of Architects. A few years ago, this list was full of single-family homes commissioned by clients with a special interest in sustainability. Lately, it's full of schools, government buildings, and commercial developments.
