Here is a very quick article listing the 6 C's needed for storytelling success. I like this post because it's not a laundry list of elements to include a story. Instead it's about the 6 C's of story practice -- like Commitment. Or Clarity.

 

Sure, you need to know how to craft a story. But underneath the crafting, these principles are at work. Combined with a well-crafted story, you will experience greater success.

 

Written from a marketing perspective, these principles are the same for leadership and influence.

 

So grab this list, take action on these practices, and story on!

How to Deal With A Boss With Zero Emotional Intelligence

How to Deal With A Boss With Zero Emotional Intelligence | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

You might already know that your emotional intelligence can influence your job success. But what about your callously oblivious boss or your ambiguously rigid colleagues?

 

Boosting your emotional intelligence might mean you are better at your job--but what can you do if your boss or colleagues don't exhibit anything close to emotional intelligence?

 

The good news is, the situations more hopeful than you think. The bad news is, you might have to have a difficult conversation. But don't worry, we've got you covered.

Three Science-Backed Ways To Influence Other People's Decisions

Three Science-Backed Ways To Influence Other People's Decisions | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
 

Your brain takes mental shortcuts all the time in order to make decisions efficiently. Because that takes place unconsciously, we can never fully control these "cognitive biases" that help us deal with the outside world—and, ultimately, survive in it. As practical as they may be, though, some of these biases can be problematic.

 

But the first step toward gaining a little more leverage over how your brain—and others' brains—make judgments is simply to understand the rules it follows to do so. Getting better acquainted with these three may help you become more influential with others.

When To Influence People, When To Inform Them, And How To Know The Difference

When To Influence People, When To Inform Them, And How To Know The Difference | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

In order to get your leaders to have confidence in your ideas and your career potential, you need to persuade them. Sharing information—informing your supervisors—is part of that process, but it isn't the process itself. No matter how much you want them to understand the depth of your work, your knowledge, and your expertise, your leaders are not studying for a test. By shifting your focus from educating to influencing, you can build the credibility you need to get where you're trying to go.

 

When you try to educate somebody about a particular subject, you implicitly assume that you have the power. You're the one with ideas, knowledge, and information—that's why you're imparting it, after all. Everyone else is just hoping to soak in as much as they can.
