I had a fun time creating this 1.5 minute video on PowToon Monday  (instead of curating, LOL) and updated it today (Wed.). It's based on a talk I gave at Disney a few years ago -- 11 fundamental questions stories help answer. The video is tiny to watch here. so click on the headline above to watch it in more comfort.


We humans come to our lives with these core questions, many of which we are continually driven to search answers for. 

 

If we can keep in mind these questions as we craft our business stories, we will have a much better chance of creating deeper connections with our customers and staff.

 

After watching the video, think of the origin stories of your company. Think about the stories you have about best ways to be, how to interact with each other, roles in the community, and the cycles of creation and destruction. There are tons of experiences and lessons here to explore and share. Because answering these questions as best we can help any person and organization navigate through life.

Ahhhhh -- here's an article that is music to my ears!


It's all about how GE is working with the principles of storytelling to provide buyers more than just information about product specifications. GE is deliberately working with stories to create the human connection with each other that we all desire.


How do they do that? This article, written by Tony Zambito for the Business2Community blog explains a lot about their approach. Like spending lots of time on listening first. Yeah!! That is a foundational skill for storytelling and a key commitment for GE.


There are 4 other story principles GE follows. I love "learn imagination". Another thing I like about this article is that there is not a distinction made between corporate storytelling and brand storytelling -- they are viewed as one and the same here, not discrete activities. Thank heavens.


Read more about how GE approaches its storytelling. You too can use the same principles with the same great results.

Michael Williams StoryCoaching's curator insight, October 5, 3:11 PM

Great storytellers know that by leaving out a lot of unnecessary description, you engage your listener's imagination. "Suggest, don't tell." Give your audience the silence and space to engage with the story. If not, they become passive as you are doing all the imaginative work for them. This article gives some media examples of this in practice.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 12, 12:11 PM

Here's some new research that is out that may have a direct impact on your business storytelling.


According to the study conducted by Stanford Univ, comprehension and retention of material soars when a flipchart or whiteboard is used during a presentation and PowerPoint (PPT) is nowhere to be seen.


Makes sense to me. In my work I rarely use PPT anymore. In fact, if you conceive of all your presentations and facilitation as a story, you will hardly use PPT. Why? Because stories and storytelling is all about feeding images from your mind to the minds of your listeners. If you are a good storyteller, PPT becomes less important.


Yes, periodically I do need to share information via PPT -- like brain diagrams. Or a list of emotions. But when I can I like to reserve these for handouts, which I make interactive so people can make notes.


OK -- that's just me :) I think the real value of this article is that it shows us that in certain contexts with certain objectives, just using a flip chart or whiteboard makes your presentation much more effective.


Figure out how you can make this research to your advantage in your business/professional life.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 12, 12:27 PM

Here's something to think about over the weekend -- when you are sharing your stories is your objective to change attitudes or values?


Turns out the answer could make a world of difference for you if you want to be more successful.


For many years I wrote about values (personal and organization), did workshops about them, and diagnosed companies regarding them. Here is part of what I taught:  values generate beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes. But the foundation is always a person's values.


So if you really want to fundamentally change yourself -- or facilitate change in someone else -- look to values.


This article does a handy job of explaining all of this and shares some important research from 2012 about circumventing resistance.


Bottom line for storytelling: craft your stories to address values, not simply attitudes. If you do so, you will rock the world.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, October 28, 4:20 PM

This article by Ahmed Mori of SchoolKeep is written for educators but applies to anyone in business doing training or delivering online courses. There are great points made here about:

  • your brain on stories
  • tips to take advantage of storytelling
  • and a few cautionary thoughts


Here is what I like about the post:

  1. There is a clear research example given confirming that storytelling process both sensory parts of the brain while concurrently stimulating language processing areas.
  2. That stories do more than inform or entertain -- they stimulate critical thinking skills, capture non-linear situation complexities, and construct new knowledge.
  3. There is such a thing as bad storytelling.
  4. That the "storytelling" of marketing is a misnomer


The only point I take exception to is a quote by author Christian Salmon of Storytelling: Bewitching the Modern Mind, who says that "stories are moving away from being spontaneous cultural practices to methods of manipulation citing examples like George W. Bush, Steve Jobs,..." 


Oh please. Manipulation with stories has been going on for 100,000 years. Think the Crusades, the European witch hunts, the Holocaust, etc. But also think of Winston Churchill, Gandhi, and Christ. That's why we need to get really smart about storytelling -- both as storytellers and listeners.


And storytelling remains just as spontaneous as it ever was, thank you very much!


OK -- off to my accountant's office. While I'm gone, go read this really good article and I'll post my next article + review tomorrow.

This post by Arik Hanson is a review of Microsoft's website and the storytelling that is going on there. This is one company that's getting business storytelling right.


Why? Because Microsoft seems to be focusing more on sentiment than social signals. Now that's a change. I'm not sure if that's a good idea or not, but the quality of their storytelling is high. Maybe that's because they are more concerned about the quality of the story they are crafting than social media metrics. It seems logical the two are not mutually exclusive, but this seems to be Microsoft's strategy.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 11, 6:06 PM

Nowadays we are being constantly told that we must share our stories using video to get any traction. Then comes along this gem of an article that says, "Wait a minute...maybe not so!"


As the article says, telling a story via video can be powerful -- plus expensive and time-consuming. Even more, it may not be the ONLY way to "move" the hearts and minds of people.


Here's a quote from the post that stood out for me:

“The soul is ‘contained’ in the human voice,” says Dave Isay, founder of StoryCorps, and former NPR producer. Gotta love that. 


There is plenty of advice and other good points made in this article. When you are crunched for time or cash -- or both -- remember the power of the human voice and go audio. Or mix up your content strategy to include more audio.
