Sharing stories, listening, while allowing others to express how they see things is a powerfully connective tool we so often forget.

Now here is a very powerful article about how a story, once it leaves our lips, can be co-opted, changed, and used to divide -- all counter to the original message of the story.


Truly there are significant ethics involved in story sharing -- especially for nonprofits, and with for-profit businesses also. 


Many social issues are emotionally charged. That's the case here where the topic is abortion. Same with guns, drugs, violence, hunger, etc.


Look beyond the abortion topic here and really hear the message about story sharing ethics.


When nonprofits share the stories of those they serve -- or highlight a social problem -- ethics become critically important.


When businesses share employee or customer stories and do not pay attention to the ethics of story sharing, they are in for a backlash.

Be an ethical story sharer. Do the right thing.

That is so true Monica! I love playing with listening activities so I can be more aware of my surroundings, and more aware of what people are really trying to tell me. And of course marketing without listening is just broadcasting, which won't take you very far!
