The Five Biggest Mistakes CEOs Make in Speaking | Decker

The Five Biggest Mistakes CEOs Make in Speaking | Decker | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it
Most CEOs are not inspiring. After years of working with leaders in business, it's hard to come to any other conclusion.

 

The 5 mistakes listed here are right on -- I experience them all the time when working with my coaching clients.

 

Number 4 is -- CEOs don't tell stories. That's for sure.

Number 5 is -- CEO's reading speeches instead of talking authentically with their audiences.

Number 3 is -- they are too stiff (that comes from not telling stories or not knowing how to tell stories)

Number 2 is -- they don't write their own material. No one can write your personal stories for you, BTW.

Number 1 is -- CEOs are not conveying a vision. Hey, we want to be inspired!

 

Well, for sure many business people of all types suffer from the same mistakes. So what to do? Find the stories you are passionate about telling, learn to tell them well and authentically, leave the notes at home, and please -- don't practice in front of a mirror! That's the kiss of death.

 

There are many more insights here in this article about how these mistakes show up for people, so go grab them.

Create Stunning Custom [Story] Word Clouds: Tagxedo

Create Stunning Custom [Story] Word Clouds: Tagxedo | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

What I love to do is take a story text and create a word cloud. It's fun and a different way to create a story graphic when you need to. Now comes along a great free tool to do this even better! Read the review below from Robin Good:

 

From fellow curator Robin Good: Tagxedo is a great, free web-based tool that allows you to create stunning covers, images for articles or posters, based exclusively on words.

 

You can either input the words yourself, or provide a website URL, a Twitter account, a news or web search and Tagxedo will create a "word cloud" by tapping into that word "universe".

 

There dozens of different controls to customize your word-art creations including the ability to change layout, fonts, colors, shapes and even density of your artwork.

 

The final work can be shared easily on social media or saved in your preferred graphic file format (jpg or png) and at your desired resolution.

You can see some examples here: http://www.tagxedo.com/gallery.html ;

 

or try it out immediately here: http://www.tagxedo.com/app.html ;

The Most Powerful Thing About You | Leadership Freak

The Most Powerful Thing About You | Leadership Freak | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

The most powerful thing about you is your story. But don't talk about yourself all the time; you'll be a bore.

Well, that all depends on whether it is all about you bring the "center of attention" or the "center or exposure". "Exposure" mesans being vulnerable and also being willing to be changed by the story. That is what this article is really all about. And it is also the essence of the talk I am on my way to give at the Pacificaa Graduate Iinstitute's conference on transformational leaderships this weekend.

The questions posed here will help you keep on track and avoid situations where you end ups telling your story from your ego instead of the place of service. It is a great checklist to keep in your back pocket.

Happy story telling!

Thank you Richard Andrews for recommending this article :)

Search Stories | Google Video Creator | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

Welcome to the Search Stories Video Creator. Just type in your searches and select the kind of results that best communicate your story. Then, share your story with the world.

 

Ha ha ha -- I just spent several hours creating 7 very short videos about business storytelling -- and had a ton of fun using Google's Search Stories Video Creator!!

 

These are micro-stories, each with a beginning, middle, and an end.  All but 3 contain a context, premise, problem, and solution. And I'll re-do those 3 tomorrow so they are stories rather than promos.

 

See, you CAN share a mini-business story using some of these new technologies!

 

This tool is so easy to use it takes no time at all. And I now have a YouTube channel :)) 

 

What a total hoot. I couldn't stop giggling every time I made one. Go check them out and tell me what you think. Then go make some of your own!

Many many thanks to fellow curator Robin Good for adding this site to his collection where I found it at http://presentationtools.masternewmedia.org/ ;
