Business leaders, what can employees tell you? Story sharing.

Karen Dietz's insight:

Storytelling colleague Limor Shiponi from Isreal has done it again -- shared a slice of real life experience working with stories within a company.


This is a short story with lots to think about -- namely how working with stories in organizations opens up meaningful conversations. And usually what is shared would have remained hidden or unsaid.


And the other piece to think about in this story is how leadership can change and grow just by opening the door to storytelling. In this case, working on a company blog.


And then the last place to reflect on with this article is the role of the story practitioner. As you read Limor's story, what qualities and skills were present that created a positive outcome? 


And then of course, the story itself proves how such a short piece can pack such a rich punch.


If anyone is interested in digging into narrative practice, experiencing how complexity can be unwound with short but rich stories, and how all of this impacts both business and leadership, then click through the link at the end of the article to the Storyevolution conference coming up in May in Washington DC. Limor will be facilitating.

Mindsets for the Future: Storyevolution Cutting Edge Conference on Biz Storytelling

Mindsets for the Future: Storyevolution Cutting Edge Conference on Biz Storytelling | Just Story It Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it

A leader's mindset must be able to embrace these apparent conflicting realities – inflexible strategies and visions that must remain vital. This conference will introduce you to storyevolution – the tool to building and sustaining a new state of mind, your mindset for the future.

Karen Dietz's insight:

Woo hoo! Just want to share with you a one-day story conference coming up in May 2013 in Wash. DC that I hope you can attend.


Yes, this is a bit self-serving because I'll be speaking there. Regardless, I think the material from the other presenters is going to be dynamite.


This is different from most conferences. This isn't about story basics. It's about how to work with stories in your organization to bring it forward into the future you envision. It's about clarity in complexity, and the evolving nature of story dynamics. Sounds heady. It's not.


The entire conference will be a storied experience. And it is designed for maximum participation, peer learning, and practical action steps you can implement -- and all grounded in solid well-tested frameworks.


Forget jumping from speaker to speaker. Forget leaving the conference and wondering what you should do next. 


Join us for a grounded experience -- guided by the leading thinkers and doers in story -- where YOU are the focus. And where you come away with not only a deeper understanding of story, deeper conversations about meeting organizational challenges with story, but also knowing what your next steps are.


Hope to see you there!

Don't be put off by this being an academic conference! The focus here is all about the untold stories in organizations and what that means for organzational life.


Untold stories are one of the most ignored -- and sometimes the most difficult to get at -- part of business. Yet these untold stories have immense power, often reflecting the power relationships within business heirarchies. These dynamis are essential for story practitioners to understand.


If you work with stories in leadership or organizational development, this just might be the conference for you. And it would be a treat to spend time in the UK too!
