I ran across this SlideShare piece today and it made me smile. It is short and sweet and to the point. It explains why we in business typically avoid stories -- and how to stop.

Dear Karen, Who wants to be boring, and then again, who still believes in fairy tales; children, teachers…, not the people who are good with numbers and need to make important decisions! A few days ago I was told by my superior that I still have a lot to learn, that I seem to be living in an alternative universe where people still WANT to listen to fairy tales. Well, as helpless and childish it may seem, I do believe that you cannot take people for granted, you cannot patronise them in order to “convert” them, you need to try to understand them and their needs or they will be “converted” by the ones who do, or, at least are trying to. Thank you for your scoop and your comment. Good luck with your MBA students, they are lucky to have you!
