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.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 4, 2012 11:06 AM

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!

Why your social media plan needs gurus and storytellers

Why your social media plan needs gurus and storytellers | Current Updates | Scoop.it

"I’m a storyteller, not a strategist

Anytime I get on the phone with a business who wants to hire me to do some social media work and they ask me about, analysis, measurement tools and anything that has to do with numbers I tell them “I’m an Indian person who is lousy at math. Contrary to popular belief we’re not all good with numbers.” My strength is the ability to tell great stories, and create content. Does that mean I’m useless? Absolutely not … and it’s because there is a digital divide emerging."

 

I love the core message of this post -- for business success hire both a strategiest AND a storyteller!

 

Why? Because you will receive the best of both worlds. Not only will you identify and execute (hopefully) an winning social media strategy, you will also learn how to tell your business stories effectively in different social media channels. Yeah!

 

Go read the article for more info on why this marriage makes so much sense.
