Keep this around for presentations, blog posts, etc. As a piece of storytelling shorthand, it could be useful.

This is a great SlideShare piece by Lusko advocating that any business -- whether you are a startup or an established brand -- can use storytelling to grow.


I like the points made here about the kinds of stories you can tell, along with the list of customer personas that make your story crafting easier.


I just wish they had described the archetypes more! But never fear -- just Google the archetype and you'll have  wealth of information. Or use Carol Pearson's book The Hero And The Outlaw for a complete explanation (I have no financial ties to Carol).


So grab this piece and hone your stories!

Story Is The How-To: 5 Forces Powering Exceptionally Creative Businesses

Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 20, 10:39 AM

This is quite a unique article and one I'm going to refer to a lot in my work. The language used to present these ideas is very imaginative -- and they stick in my mind!


But what does it have to do with stories? Mainly this: the author Charles Day's ideas and explanations are top notch. But we are left wondering "How do I executive on these?" The answer includes storytelling.

  1. Conveying gravity happens through sharing stories about why the company exists and why anyone should care.
  2. Maintaining gravity happens when you've got storytelling imbedded in your culture/daily activities.
  3. Tension is experienced through the tension you build into the stories you share.
  4. Applying heat also happens through storytelling. Stories can go viral and ideas can rapidly come into expression.
  5. Speed is about learning more, and what better way to learn quickly than through sharing stories.


OK -- you get the picture. Enjoy this creative re-think about being a creative company and what it takes. Think of story as your go-tool process to realize more creativity in your organization.

Video is all the rage for storytelling these days. But too many people overlook the power of oral narratives. Learn why you shouldn't ignore audio.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 11, 3:06 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.


You may be surprised with the results!

Non Disclosure Acts are overused. NDA's are really needed to protect very unique ideas. I still think ones intellectual property should be protected.
