Before I share his story—or more specifically, have him share his story—let’s talk briefly about why you want to use stories to help shift someone out of a stuck place.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 17, 2013 5:47 AM

Colleage David Lee shared this post with me and I think it's great because it reminds us again about how the stories we share in business can help create shifts and changes in people.


Lee shares a situation he had with a client, and how he used a story to help that person shift to a different place and resolve a long-standing issue.


While the post is about a coaching interaction and the power of story, I bet a good number of the busines stories you share have the same ability. Lee makes good points in the article that how stories can create both personal and organizational change.


Lee's post is perfect timing. I've just been re-reading the book "Influencer: The Power to Change Anything" by Kerry Patterson, et al (2008). It's all about storytelling and great stuff.


If you want to read more about how stories can influence people to shift, then read Lee's post. For a deeper dive, dig into "Influencer" (I have no relationship with the authors or their publisher, I just think it's a fab book!).

What's after behaviours change? Personality?

 

Andrea Strube's curator insight, September 16, 2013 4:05 PM

"How did the likes of Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Teresa build a following of millions and a legacy that will last for generations to come? They had a resounding purpose and strong sense of values that they used to build trust by being clear about their end goal."

Pierre Santarelli's curator insight, September 23, 2013 11:05 AM

Being an aspirational leader takes more than a sharp sorytelling acumen. Electrifying an audience is also lying in your ability to deliver an emotional speech and in being able to change your own perspective to adopt the one of the different persons that you are willing to engage in the transformational momentum you have started.

The Four Kinds of Burning Platforms | Conner Partners

The Four Kinds of Burning Platforms | Conner Partners | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
I promised to curate the next article by Daryl Conner on the four types of burning platforms stories and how they are used in org change work. Well, here it is -- and it is really good.

Any leader, business, or consultant needs to know the particulars in this article. Here is a sneak preview -- the burning platforms stories are NOT really about creating urgency for change.

I appreciate Daryl for clearing up these misconceptions about this story. And don't forget to read his first blog post about the burning platform that I curated below.

Billy R Bennett's curator insight, December 12, 2012 2:01 AM

Karen Dietz curated this article by Daryl Conner on four types of burning platforms.  A burning platform is a concept leaders use to define the reason for change.  As Daryl points out this may be based on a negative problem  based appeal or a positive, future opportunity.


Which is better?


Research on personal change has reported greater long term success with positive images.    In most serious change projects, we usually use both. 


You cannot and should not hide business challenges from employees.  


However, once they understand the challenge they will then want to hear your reasoning about why they should consider giving more of themselves to the organization.   I would make it good.

How do you get leaders, employees, customers — and even yourself — to change behaviors? Executives can change strategy, products and processes until they're blue in the face, but real change doesn't take hold until people actually change what they do.

Here is a good list of 10 approaches that seem to work
