Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 19, 3:50 PM

I've got a webinar coming up with a group of researchers and I'm going to use parts of this article and the research it sites when I'm with them.


It's a short but terrific piece laying out WHY data is not the core for decision-making, but stories are. There is definitely a role for data, but only as a supporting character in your story. Data is not the hero.


Data wrapped in stories are far better than data alone as research has shown us for years. If you are still operating under the notion that data convinces, then get with the story program for better results. 


This review was written by Karen Dietz for her curated content on business storytelling at www.scoop.it/t/just-story-it 

Richard Lock's curator insight, May 20, 9:28 AM

It is difficult to over emphasize just how influential it is to build your key data points into a story. It also helps to make the data visually clear to understand.

Los MOOCs son una tendencia cada vez más fuerte entre las Universidades de élite, cuyas consecuencias en la educación superior son aún impredecibles. Unos la consideran el futuro de la educación como bien público, otros el comienzo de un lucartivo negocio de unos pocos. Lo cierto es que hay que entrar a estudiarlos en profundidad para aprovechar adecuadamente muchas de sus ventajas.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 21, 12:35 PM

I don't claim to be good at sales. For me, sales is hard. So anytime I find an article that links storytelling to successful sales, I'm all ears.


I like the tips shared here -- especially the one about practice. Yes, you do have to practice your stories before telling them. The other tips are solid, also.


Yet what stories should you tell in sales? Mostly People & Results stories. These are stories about customers who have achieved wonderful things because of your product/service (THEY are the heroes, not you. You are the supporting cast). Or stories about how staff have overcome significant obstacles to help a customer achieve something great.


Two other kinds of stories might also be important -- your Vision story (how your product/service is making the future world a better place) and your "Why I..." story. "Why I..." is the story about "Why I work for this company" or "Why I believe in this product/service". "Why I..." is all about your commitment. If you want others to commit to your product/service, then you've got to share why you are committed first. That builds trust.


OK -- enough talking! Go read this quick article to help you increase your sales.
