The Effectiveness of True Empathy

The Effectiveness of True Empathy | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

A powerful technique for empathy in communication from Derrick Jones, and the edge you need in order to really connect with the person across the table!  

 

Imagine walking into a customer meeting and instead of you giving a presentation, the customer has one waiting for you, slide show and all. During the presentation, the customer explains in detail what you must say in order to earn his or her business. The slideshow includes detailed charts, tables and bulleted lists of their core motivations and fears. Your only job is to simply repeat what they said, and the business is yours!

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Just how many types of stories are there, you ask? The answer is, as usual, it depends who you ask. Various storytelling aficionados categorize stories in different ways, and there are no hard and fast rules.

 

These are overviews of each (read the full article for more details and prompts to help you come up with each type of story):

1. Introducing me

2. Conveying values

3. Teaching

4. Jumpstarting action

5. Inspiring

 

Here's the link to the full article: http://www.internal-monologue.com/2012/07/careful-around-campfire-five-types-of.html ;

 

These 5 broad categories and the examples shared in each are really good and will build a good foundation for leadership storytelling. According to Paul Smith in his forthcoming book on leadership storytelling "Lead With A Story" (August 20112), there are actually 21 different categories/applications for leaders to know about and use.

 

But this article brings clarity to the topic and will definitely get you started!

 

Thank you to fellow curator Gimli Goose for this article!

Most Powerful Word Used to Influence Others

Most Powerful Word Used to Influence Others | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
What you have to say is not powerful.  The power comes from positioning your ideas and offers in the CONTEXT of what’s important to the listener.

 

The most powerful word you can use to influence others is the word CONTEXT.  Context is not the word you should be using, but rather the strategy on how to influence others.

 

What you have to say is not powerful.  The power comes from positioning your ideas and offers in the CONTEXT of what’s important to the listener.  This may sound like a minor point to you, but it is the GREATEST DISTINCTION of what separates the most influential people from others.

 

Here’s an example.  Scott Nadell, Director of Sales for Mextrx LLC, a third party biller in New York specializing in workers compensation and no fault receivables, called me up after reading Lead, Sell or Get Out of the Way.  He asked me how could he do a better job of opening his client’s minds to listen to what he has to say.  He described his clients as being closed minded and downright rude to him.
