Annette Simmons's comment, January 11, 10:20 AM
Right now I'm developing a workshop for legal storytelling. For the past few years I've been helping a friend of mine - a lawyer - with storytelling in the legal environment. I gave him Nancy's book Resonate and we seem to have come to this conclusion. In my description of the vision story I intuitively recommended that all vision stories need to validate the current story. Coming to the same conclusion for different reasons - but that was primarily for the vision story. Do you think Nancy concentrates more on vision stories than other kinds of stories (Who I am, Why I am here, Teaching, etc)
José Carlos's comment, January 11, 10:38 AM
I think the vision from Nancy is more for business and markting. In education its not easy to apply, because not all contents are easy to convert into stories, but we try :D
Annette Simmons's comment, January 11, 10:54 AM
Even in business and marketing there are stories that are not vision stories - it's not a criticism of Nancy…just something I think helps my clients understand that "undulation" is not always necessary when crafting a story.

It seems to me that the more you learn the more there is to learn.

Read books to gain the edge.
