"A team is not a bunch of people with job titles, but a congregation of individuals, each of whom has a role which is understood by other members. Members of a team seek out certain roles and they perform most effectively in the ones that are most natural to them."

The 50 Best Social Psychology Books on Persuasion, Influence and Understanding Your Brain

The 50 Best Social Psychology Books on Persuasion, Influence and Understanding Your Brain | Human Potential | Scoop.it

Have you ever wanted to be more persuasive, convincing, or if nothing else, understand how others try to influence you? …Of course! Who hasn’t?

 

Understanding how storytelling works in persuasion, influence, and change, and the research/neuroscience that informs it all is critical if anyone is going to work with stories effectively.

 

And hooray -- Gregory Ciotti has put together his list of favorite books that help us understand persuasion, influence, change, and stories more deeply. We'll all become more articulate and better at our craft -- whether you are a consultant, storyteller, entrepreneur or CEO.

 

Some of these I've read, some I haven't -- so I can't wait to dig into this list myself.

 

I hope we all learn lots and gain lots of useable insights for our work. Enjoy!

This is a terrific list by Jacquelyn Smith at Forbes, and a great way to check in on how you are doing at work or what skills you might need to upgrade to realize greater success.


I was checking out this article just because when I realized how much storytelling skills play a role here. In fact, 13 of the 20 success skills can be connected to storytelling. Here they are:


  1. Ability to relate to others -- building storytelling skills builds empathy and builds relationships.
  2. Strong communication skills -- don't be boring or shy: storytelling to the rescue!
  3. Ability to trust others -- well, stories help build trust.
  4. Knowing how and when to show empathy -- building storytelling skills builds empathy skills.
  5. Active listening skills -- effective storytelling is really all about listening to someone else's story first.
  6. Genuine interest in others -- through building storytelling/story evoking skills you have a lot more fun genuinely getting to know someone.
  7. Flexibility -- there's a lot to flexibility, and becoming proficient in storytelling means learning how to shift and change the story in real time (i.e. being flexible!). Hopefully this spills over into other areas of life :)
  8. Ability to persuade others -- well, storytelling is your best tool for this!
  9. Ability to keep an open mind -- I've noticed that as I listen to other people's stories I become much more tolerant. Hopefully, others do too.
  10. Knowing your audience -- telling a great story that connects with others doesn't happen unless you know your audience, which storytelling can help teach you.
  11. Honesty -- if you are unable to tell an honest and authentic story, you are toast. Need I say more?
  12. Awareness of body langauge -- as you learn to craft and tell your stories, you become more aware of how your own body language helps you tell the story (or how to move your body to better tell the story) and the body language of others.
  13. Ability to be supportive and motivate others -- which is one of the core purposes for telling stories. Working on stories helps you do this more effectively.


OK, I know storytelling won't solve all the worlds woes, or all the issues at work. But it can take you far! There are more insights to grab in this article so don't miss it.

Drucker’s Knowledge Worker in the Age of Social Media: Curation for Professional Development | Human Potential | Scoop.it

"50+ years ago, Peter Drucker presented the concept of the knowledge worker - focused on quality over quantity and working more independently as problem solvers."

 

DN:  ScoopIt is announcing their new partnership with LinkedIn.  This is part of their announcement and includes a SlideShare and other resources.

 

Excerpted:

 

________________________

There’s a New Talent Economy, and professionals must use everything they’ve got — from platforms and resources to skills and expertise — to gain business success.  

________________________

 

Over the many applications of Social Content Curation, Professional Development has been a strong trend. We keep observing it on Scoop.it but it's also been reported by Social Media influencers.

 

As more and more of us become Knowledge Worker,s it should be no suprise that Content takes a growing importance on our Professional lives.

 

It's why we announced this new integration with LinkedIn earlier today.

 

Take a look at ScoopIt's SlideShare presentation on how content curation can be used for professional development.

Belbin's (1981, 1993) team role theories are evaluated in terms of the claim that high

team performance is associated with teams which are balanced in terms of the team roles

Eleven teams from a mixture of private and public

organizations were surveyed to test the proposition that a balanced team will be a high
