We asked filmmakers to rally together—not for us, not for themselves, and
not even for the Storytelling Parade prizes.
We asked them to rally together to tell the story of individuals or
organizations doing good for the world—to share their stories in hopes of

The Art and Science of Great Brand Storytelling


....Instead, a true brand story originates from its story platform — the emotional heart of the brand, the ephemeral something that customers can connect with. It is not a tagline or a descriptor. You won't put it in the footer of your email address or on your website's homepage. Instead, it is the enduring idea that will serve as the consistent basis for the many stories that a successful brand must tell over time. It's the glue that holds all your brand's actions and words together.

Barbara Ganley's insight:

Useful! Great tips on finding the emotional core of your brand.  Nonprofits, take note!

Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 5, 1:25 PM

It is easy to forget -- or simply not get -- that story telling is only half the equation in business. The real power behind story telling is actually in story listening.


Author Greg McKeown shares with us a very powerful listening activity that will surely bring tons of new insights to us. And he reminds us that simply listening is one of the fastest and most inexpensive ways to improve engagement. Makes sense.


Read more about the importance of listening, it's ROI, and then the activity. The exercise won't bring you stories, but it will lead to some great discoveries along with increased engagement.


And if you want to generate even more understanding, connection, and interactions, at the right time you can always evoke a story by asking, "Tell me about a time when...."

Art Jones's curator insight, December 7, 11:38 AM

The ability to craft a thought provoking question is the best way to begin a conversation and the very best way to establish a basis for being an engaged listener. This HBR article suggest that with employee engagement trending lower and lower the best ways to reverse the trend is through listening.


Excerpt:

Deep engagement does not begin with getting people to listen to you; it begins when you really listen to them. Powerful listening is one of the rarest executive practices today, not because of a lack of skill – although that is often the case – but because it’s a skill that’s under attack from social media, smart phones and the ubiquitous expectation of instant reactions. Have you ever been in the middle of a conversation when the other person just started checking his phone? Of course you have. We have a listening famine going on and it’s a shame, because in a knowledge age, so much value creation lies in the ability to figure out what’s important—by listening.

The Psychological Comforts of Storytelling

The Psychological Comforts of Storytelling | Nonprofit Storytelling | Scoop.it

Humans have been telling stories for thousands of years, sharing them orally even before the invention of writing. In one way or another, much of people’s lives are spent telling stories—often about other people. In her paper “Gossip in Evolutionary Perspective,” evolutionary psychologist Robin Dunbar found stories’ direct relevance to humans: Social topics—especially gossip—account for 65 percent of all human conversations in public places.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, December 7, 9:12 PM

Stories can be a way for humans to feel that we have control over the world. They allow people to see patterns where there is chaos, meaning where there is randomness. Humans are inclined to see narratives where there are none because it can afford meaning to our lives—a form of existential problem-solving.

Michael Dunn's insight:

Imagination, emotion, the arts: Why do we tell stories?

Miguel Paul Trijaud Calderón's curator insight, December 24, 9:14 AM

Stories and novels allow us to identify behavioral patterns, emotional styles or, on the other hand, identify ourselves with a character. That's the reason why humans have a natural preference for storytelling, because it has the power to transfer and communicate powerful symbolic lessons.
