Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling

Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling | Knowledge Broker |
These rules were originally tweeted by Emma Coats, Pixar's Story Artist. Number 9 on the list - When you’re stuck, make a list of what wouldn't happen next - is a great one and can apply to writers in all genres..

Learning To Be A Power Listener | Fast Company

Learning To Be A Power Listener | Fast Company | Knowledge Broker |
In business, the consequences of failing to properly frame or assess an issue can be dire. Often such a misdiagnosis is the result of not having the right information.


I am always looking for really good articles on listening because that is a foundation skill for working with stories.  Today I found another one!


What I like about this article is that it carefully articulates the listening archetypes to avoid.  And the author gives plenty of examples in the post.


Maybe you'll find yourself here -- maybe not. I know when I am stressed, I can be an 'Answer Man.'


But just knowing this helps me to slide out of it and move back into attentive/appreciative listening.


Listening is not always easy -- but it is essential.  I hope this article -- by focusing on what not to do -- leads us all into taking action on what we need to do.
