Got your story radar on?


I did not even know what this meant until I read this article by colleague Andrew Nemiccolo and listened to my colleague Shawn Callahan explain it.


Basically it is this -- not everything we hear is a story. And plenty of people are confused about this, as I can attest to in my own story work with clients.


Shawn offers us an activity that will get us to quickly understand the storied world we live in, and helps us know what a story is and is not.


Thans Andrew and Shawn for putting this together! I know I am going to use it with clients. And with myself too so I can continue to develop my story listening skills (those always need attention no matter how long you've been doing this work!).

Shawn Callahan's four story essentials are worth noting: time, place, dialogue, the unexpected

Absolutely Jeff. They are key essentials. I'm glad Shawn put these together to share with us.

It's no secret that good leaders are also good communicators. And the best leaders have learned that effective communication is as much about authenticity as the words they speak and write.

Here's a quick article with very good advice. It's not about story structure, or the elements of a compelling story. It is instead all the things you need to think about BEFORE you launch into a story.


Like -- does your story match your actions? Or is there some misalignment there. 


Are your stories making the complex simple -- or are they still too convoluted with details and side-tracks?


This article applies whether you are a leader in an enterprise, or a small biz owner. 


And I love that the article ends with a focus on listening -- which is truly the heart of great storytelling!
