The famous line in the movie Jerry McGuire states "You had me at hello" is more accurate than you think.  In a study conducted by University of Glasgow in Scotland, professor  Phil McAleer, had a group of people record their voices reading the same paragraph.  Then he extracted the word "Hello" from each of their voices and asked over 300 volunteers to determine 10 different personality traits, such as trustworthiness, aggressiveness, confidence, dominance and warmth.What he found was that the group as a whole, agreed on almost all of the personali

Exercises for Interactive Storytelling To Adapt to Biz Story Work

Exercises for Interactive Storytelling To Adapt to Biz Story Work | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 25, 2:16 PM

One of my Twitter buddies, Os @ICGJ_IDEATION, found and shared this article with me and I think these interactive storytelling activities could easily be adapted to business settings. The post was written by Anastasia Salter @AnaSalter for the Chronicle of Higher Education.


I'm always on the hunt for fun ways to work with stories in my business storytelling workshops.  I think the first game will be really easy to adapt/work with.


For the second game, it will take a little work, but I think the free Google Doc can be tweaked to address complex business situations. I see this fitting nicely with the post I recently curated by Madelyn Blair on using narrative for problem solving.


I've always liked Story Cubes and think they are great for generating stories for all kinds of business situations, like sales and marketing. Instead of starting the story with "Once upon a time..." (that will never fly in business), I like using "It happened one day..."


So check out this post and start using these games for generating business stories, working through complex problems, and having more fun doing it all.

The practice of storytelling is full of lessons -- that apply to becoming a better storyteller. That's a little-known secret in our profession.


And thank heavens business story professional Lianne Picot from up in Toronto, Canada clues the world in with her latest blog. I love it. She shares a story and connects it to all the mistakes she made, and then links those mistakes back to lessons in how to tell better stories.


The tips at the end of the post are great and a good reminder list for crafting great stories.


Enjoy this unique twist. It's a good example of ways everyday life can help us perfect our craft.
