Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 23, 2013 1:53 PM

I read lots of leadership articles and obviously, I alos read lots of biz storytelling articles. When the 2 topics converge it is often more about how leaders can use stories in their work.


That's helpful and this article is a bit different. For one, it never mentions storytelling. So why the heck did I curate it?


Because the article does talk about the inner life of a leader -- how they need to be aware and present -- and the habits therein that lead to greater success. And when experts talk about 'executive presence' the habits mentioned in this article are the underpinings.


So as I read this piece I automatically started to think about how storytelling links in. My conclusion? Storytelling is the vehicle for each of the 5 points made.


When the author Mike Myatt talks about the 5 habits (he calls them Transitions), here is how I connect storytelling:


  1. Find Purpose -- common purpose, shared values, and vision are found and conveyed through stories. Ignore stories and you won't get very far.
  2. People First -- using appreciative guidelines for listening for and evoking stories, and then appreciating what was heard has tremendous power and brings servant leadership forward.
  3. Develop Awareness -- if you are listening deeply to your own stories and to the stories of others, both personal awareness and awareness about others increases signficiantly. Stories are your best Gurus and learning vehicles about yourself and others.
  4. Shun Complexity -- stories can make complex topics simple. Master the art of storytelling to better deal with complexity.
  5. Get Personal -- stories build empathy, kindness and compassion if approached right and handled well.


Make sense? I hope so :)

Article supports position that he who humbles himself will be exalted, but he who exalts himself will be humbled.

Exactly correct Garth.
ⓡⓔLⓔnⓣLⓔⓢⓢ LIT KING™'s comment, June 24, 2013 9:27 PM
Being humble is a subjective measure, depending on the industry you're in. Some industries prefer that you are bold (about your stuff), while others require the reserved man or woman. We all know about the arrogant entrepreneurs like Donald and Leona, who both clearly recognized peak successes. Meanwhile, only in the past decade have we all (more or less) gained access to resources and information/shared in books, videos, etc, teaching us people skills and practices. Learning them is one thing. Adopting them and using them unconsciously is another. Thank you for the affirmation today, how humble "wins."
