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 :)

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 ;
