Karen Dietz's curator insight, May 11, 2013 4:32 PM

This is an unusual post -- but it also reflects a side of business storyteling that rarely gets mentioned. It's the nitty-gritty side of hearing people share their stories.


All compelling stories are made up of conflict, strife, struggle, trouble and the like. It's not a story without it.


Yet the author here reminds us that it might not always be about happy endings -- and this can be just as powerful.


If our business stories are only about the successes or triumphs, are we in some ways denying parts of the soul that inform our humanity? I certainly have personal stories that don't have happy endings, yet they are still powerful for the lessons I learned that I share with others.


Hmmm -- this is a thought provoking article about storytelling. What do you get from it?

Good reason to keep an achievement diary with facts, dates and participants within your career.

Curt Einstein would put it:  Tell me what you did and how you did it from A to Z.  If they couldn't tell the story of how it happened, then they may have been the boss but they didn't do it.


Lee Thayer's:  The measure of performance is performance tells what one has done in order to do what needed doing to accomplish the required results.  It's about results, not activities.

There is an ocean between saying and doing.

Monitor and measure. Karen's comments and finding Jose's rubrics are most helpful.

Here's a nice story from the word-detective: The Latin "rubrica" meant "red ochre" (a clay-like soil used in coloring) or red coloring itself, as used in makeup and dyes ("ruber" being the Latin word for "red").

One of the earliest uses of "rubric" in English, in the late 14th century, was in reference to the practice at the time of printing directions for the conduct of services, as well as other instructions and explanations, in red letters in religious texts. These sections of the text, designed to catch the eye and command the attention of worshipers, were known as "rubrics." This use eventually produced two other senses of "rubric," that of "an explanation or definition" and "a rule or custom of conduct."

The use of red ink to draw the reader's attention to important points was widespread in secular works as well, and "rubric" was applied to a chapter title or other heading in a book or manuscript printed in red. By the 19th century, this had produced the figurative meaning of "a designation or category"
