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!

How to Use Storytelling as a Leadership Tool - Forbes

How to Use Storytelling as a Leadership Tool - Forbes | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Paul Smith I recently spoke to Paul Smith, who is a consumer research executive, keynote speaker, corporate trainer, and author of Lead with a Story: A Guide to Crafting Business Narratives that Captivate, Convince, and Inspire (AMACOM Books, August,...


I've been following Dan Schawbel for years and was delighted to find that he recently interviewed colleague Paul Smith at Proctor and Gamble about his new book on storytelling and leadership titled Lead With A Story.


This interview with Paul that Dan conducted is chock full of good information about the need for leaders to develop storytelling as a core competence. And tips on how companies can make storytelling part of their leadership practices.


What I love about Paul's book is his identification of 21 common leadership challenges where storytelling can help. He based his conclusions on his interviews with 75+ CEOs and executives at companies around the world.


If you want to know more about storytelling and leadership, read this article and then get the book (I have no affiliation with Paul or his publisher).


You will have more tools at your disposal than when you started!

If You Don't Like Your Future, Rewrite Your Past -- Story Wisdom

If You Don't Like Your Future, Rewrite Your Past -- Story Wisdom | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

If you don't like how things are going, tell a different story. Sometimes strategic change just means taking something from the periphery — an anomaly, a demonstration, a small innovation — and redefining it as central.

 

Truer words could not be said!

 

When it comes to organizational storytelling, updating or rewriting a narrative is essential work sometimes. The stories we tell about ourselves and share -- whether as an enterprise, small biz, or nonprofit -- shape the results we experience. 

 

Want different results? Then shift your stories. Rewrite them (don't fabricate -- still be authentic) to emphasize different qualities. Or find new/different stories to tell altogether.

 

This is particularly important when, as the author Rosabeth Moss Kanter says, the current narratives inhibit rather than inspire.

 

This is a quick article with really good examples and important insights that I know you will enjoy.

 

So that leaves the following question on the table -- What biz stories do you carry that need to be rewritten?
