The Remarkable Story of Microsoft's Chief Storyteller: "Frank, You Raise Me Up" | Huffington Post

The Remarkable Story of Microsoft's Chief Storyteller: "Frank, You Raise Me Up" | Huffington Post | International Immigration | Scoop.it
My original intent on reaching out to Steve was to share his success story as a storyteller. Steve’s intent to start blogging was to share Microsoft’s story in the belief that he could help the company. Through his journey, he built a solid team with varied, impeccable backgrounds - journalists, speechwriters, artists and many more. His overarching passion - bring Microsoft stories to the world at large.

Yet, in narrating his own, simple interactions with Frank, he may have shared what is the best-hidden gem of Microsoft.

On paper, what draws talent to companies is great technology, positive buzz and awesome teams. Deep in the hearts of people, the anecdote rich, water cooler stories are magnetic draws that create grander legacies for companies.
That makes Steve’s story among the best, long lasting story Microsoft can strive for. And in Frank, the world has a great mascot - an unwavering belief in the indomitable human spirit.

How Learning Leaders Win Friends and Influence People

How Learning Leaders Win Friends and Influence People | International Immigration | Scoop.it
Sheer talent will only yield so much problem-solving capability. It’s one reason relationships are so important for business success.

Michael Chavez, CEO of Duke Corporate Education, said leaders needn’t look further than this summer’s Brexit vote as an example of this. Increasingly complex problems will not be easily solved with a purely functional mindset. The relationships people will need to build in the British government moving forward will be far more important than arriving at the right answer when there are many pathways out of the predicament, he explained.

That’s politics, but relationships are no less important in business. Learning leaders in particular have to be strong networkers and collaborators to be effective. Chavez said networking is probably a requirement for the job. If he had to hire a chief learning officer of his own, he said he’d be willing to trade off experience working with learning management systems, for instance, for a proven track record of building relationships based on the work. “Technical expertise in learning is not sufficient — necessary but not sufficient — to drive the kind of learning solutions that organizations need.”

Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 2, 2016 2:28 PM

Here's a great article that thoroughly discusses the steps leaders need to take to create a learning organization. The first step is to become a learning leader yourself. After that there are 6 steps to shift into a learning culture (that is more productive and profitable).

 

What's storytelling got to do with it? It's the way to implement all 6 steps to get to those concrete results. Storytelling is the path. Like most articles, steps are offered, but not the "how". In this case, storytelling can be the powerful "how".

 

But it's really about story dynamics -- the give and take of conversational storytelling. That means leaders need training in how to evoke stories from others, how to listen for stories, and the best ways/timing for giving appreciations. These are covered in Chapter 5 of our book "Business Storytelling For Dummies".

 

On the flip side of the coin is learning storytelling skills to foster authenticity, empathy, transparency, and executive presence.

 

What I love about this article are the examples/case studies they provide. This moves the content from platitudes to real life experiences. 'Gotta love that.

 

Dig into this rich post and start making these changes today.

(From the article) As a leader, the way you frame your stories affects more than just you. "You have to understand the importance of narrative," Bolman says. "A great leader tells a great story. The story serves as an intellectual framework, but it's also emotional and even spiritual. Typically, it's a story of great challenge, adventure, and achievement. A great story orients the leader, but also everyone around the leader. That helps them understand what the business is about and where you are trying to go."

Karen Dietz's curator insight, October 28, 2014 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.


Enjoy the article and poking around the Microsoft site for examples of really good storytelling.

Lots of storytelling goes on in Podcasts, and they could be considered a narrative form in and of themselves. So here's an article about what goes on in the brain when we hear podcasts.

 

What I really like is that the podcasts used in this research was storytelling from The Moth. Which are all stories.

 

What did they find? "And so it goes, for each word and concept as it is added to the narrative flow, as the brain adds and alters layers of networks: A living internal reality takes over the brain." Multiple areas of the brain are activated along with layers and layers of neural networks. This shows us again how storytelling is a whole-brain/whole body immersive experience.

One of the most uncomfortable stories for anyone to share are failure stories. You know -- the time when you really screwed up.


When jobs and careers depend on us putting our best foot forward it seems counter-intuitive to share big mistakes we've made.


Yet people are so hungry for authentic relationships we want to both hear, and share, our failure stories. It makes us human, validates that even when we make mistakes we are still worthy of belonging. And these stories teach us that yes, we can recover.


They are also a terrific antidote for the cascade of sugar-coated 'success' stories we are continually bombarded with.


This article is all about failure stories and how they've even spawned live storytelling evenings -- called "F-Up Nights" like the Moth. Fabulous! Read about how this got started, where events are, and insights about sharing these kinds of stories.


All of this will make you more comfortable sharing your own. Right on!

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.

Great storytellers know that by leaving out a lot of unnecessary description, you engage your listener's imagination. "Suggest, don't tell."
