Karen Dietz's insight:        

OK -- this article is super quick. But I curated it because I really like the 3 questions it poses to make sure your corporate storytelling is on the right track.

 

The article is written for those in large enterprises. But these questions could work just as well for small businesses and entrepreneurs, also.

 

Pay attention to these 3 questions and you will be on the road to success. All 3 are right on.

You know, these all sound like great ideas. And you might want to use a few in your organization.


Here's the caveat though -- in my story work with organizations, when they use some of these methods to generate stories, what they sometimes get are NOT stories. More often they are poorly crafted stories.


But the organization thinks what they get are fine. Unfortunately, because they are sub-par, so are their results.


The solution? Either formally train folks in storytelling, or make sure the collected stories are well crafted by someone trained in storytelling. Someone trained in marketing, journalism or PR might not work -- again, personal experience speaks. 


These ideas are creative but treat them wisely. And treat your storytelling seriously to maximize your results.


Thanks Gregg Morris for finding and sharing this article.

This article shows that it's possible to create a storytelling culture in organisations. However, I think that 'tips' are not enough and there are quite some managers who go for the 'quick win' and 'quick read'. Creating a storytelling culture takes time (not toi mention the maintenance of that, the greatest challenge). If anyone is inspired by this article, I would suggest reading Annette Simmon's 'The Story Factor' and 'Whoever tells the best story wins'. It's all in there...

We all have stories to tell. Our individual stories make the our collective stories. Our stories define who we are. This is a great way to collect stories in organizations. The trick will be to convince people that storytelling is a value added contribution. We tell stories to children because we believe in them but somehow we forget as we get older
