“I’m a storyteller.” It’s a sentence that can be found in a wide variety of TED Talks -- because, really, it is the heart of what we do. This is why, for the 10th anniversary of the TED Prize in 20...

Woo hoo! Go Dave Isay! Isay is the founder of StoryCorps and he just won the million-dollar TED Prize in 2015.


As a Folklorist, his work is close to my heart -- because that's what Folklorists do--collect stories. The stories StoryCorp has collected all go to the Library of Congress where my Folklorist buddies handle them with care.


To go right along with the other post I curated today on story listening, here's what Isay has to say about StoryCorp: "...he sees StoryCorps as primarily about listening. 'Listening is generosity,' he tells us. 'Listening to someone else closely is one of the most valuable gifts we can give to another human being.'


Amen to that. Congrats Isay! Go read the post to learn more about StoryCorps and what TED has planned for him. Oh happy day, happy day :))

Of all the ways to enjoy a book, minds wander most when we're listening to someone else read it.

Ooh ooh ooh -- this article is really cool! Add this to your arsenal about why oral or in-person storytelling is a higher leverage point than just audio stories.


This article makes the point that reading a story creates more engagement with it because more of the brain and body is engaged. We already know that oral storytelling is a whole brain/whole body experience that often trumps reading. The research shared here has important ramifications for anyone producing content.


The researchers demonstrate that people who listen to stories (like podcasts or books on tape) are more easily distracted. That means your ability to connect, engage, and shift perceptions is compromised. And compromised a lot, according to this research.


Enjoy digging into this research and learning more about how to better leverage the power of storytelling.

Very interesting: comparing the impact of reading vs listening to a book. Not sure I completely agree - the comments are worth noting, too!

Storytelling via listening - how can you tell your story to get people to want to listen?

Here's an very interesting blog post that friend and colleague Mary Alice Arthur in Denmark pointed me to. It's a blog talking about scribing -- or graphic facilitation. Scribing is where trained professionals visually capture the proceedings of a meeting or conference in real time on whiteboards or long panels of paper on the wall. It's amazing to watch and is a fantastic way to capture all that happened in a meeting.


This particular post presents Otto Scharmer's 4 levels of listening and talks about the connection to storytelling. I've always talked about "deep listening" in my client workshops and coaching. This is what I mean by that.


The author also constructs the 4 levels of scribing which actually maps the experience of storytelling. Awesome!


This is a short post but really good. I hope you get several "ah-hah's" by reading it.

Hi Folks!


Many people have been asking me when my TEDx talk will be available and it's finally be posted for viewing.


During the presentation I not only talk a bit about my background and lessons I've learned about storytelling, but I also share a simply story listening process I learned years ago from storyteller Doug Lipman.


I use the process all the time in my work -- because it's so powerful, and because it is at the root of how work gets done, and how making a difference in the world really happens. Anyone can do this process and I encourage you to try it out.


I hope you enjoy this 15 minutes and begin to relate to stories in this way. Happy story listening!
