Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 5, 1:25 PM

It is easy to forget -- or simply not get -- that story telling is only half the equation in business. The real power behind story telling is actually in story listening.


Author Greg McKeown shares with us a very powerful listening activity that will surely bring tons of new insights to us. And he reminds us that simply listening is one of the fastest and most inexpensive ways to improve engagement. Makes sense.


Read more about the importance of listening, it's ROI, and then the activity. The exercise won't bring you stories, but it will lead to some great discoveries along with increased engagement.


And if you want to generate even more understanding, connection, and interactions, at the right time you can always evoke a story by asking, "Tell me about a time when...."

The ability to craft a thought provoking question is the best way to begin a conversation and the very best way to establish a basis for being an engaged listener. This HBR article suggest that with employee engagement trending lower and lower the best ways to reverse the trend is through listening.


Excerpt:

Deep engagement does not begin with getting people to listen to you; it begins when you really listen to them. Powerful listening is one of the rarest executive practices today, not because of a lack of skill – although that is often the case – but because it’s a skill that’s under attack from social media, smart phones and the ubiquitous expectation of instant reactions. Have you ever been in the middle of a conversation when the other person just started checking his phone? Of course you have. We have a listening famine going on and it’s a shame, because in a knowledge age, so much value creation lies in the ability to figure out what’s important—by listening.

Ooh ooh ooh -- this article is really cool! Add this to your arsenal about why oral or in-person storytelling is a higher leverage point than just audio stories.


This article makes the point that reading a story creates more engagement with it because more of the brain and body is engaged. We already know that oral storytelling is a whole brain/whole body experience that often trumps reading. The research shared here has important ramifications for anyone producing content.


The researchers demonstrate that people who listen to stories (like podcasts or books on tape) are more easily distracted. That means your ability to connect, engage, and shift perceptions is compromised. And compromised a lot, according to this research.


Enjoy digging into this research and learning more about how to better leverage the power of storytelling.

Very interesting: comparing the impact of reading vs listening to a book. Not sure I completely agree - the comments are worth noting, too!

Hi Folks!


Many people have been asking me when my TEDx talk will be available and it's finally be posted for viewing.


During the presentation I not only talk a bit about my background and lessons I've learned about storytelling, but I also share a simply story listening process I learned years ago from storyteller Doug Lipman.


I use the process all the time in my work -- because it's so powerful, and because it is at the root of how work gets done, and how making a difference in the world really happens. Anyone can do this process and I encourage you to try it out.


I hope you enjoy this 15 minutes and begin to relate to stories in this way. Happy story listening!
