This is very interesting when you look at how the Eastern U.S. CEO's are more engaged than those on the Western side. Wonder what that means?

I think it is most interesting that the Western side of the U.S. don't even worry about their online reputation. Wonder when that will change?

The Most Powerful Weapon Of Influence In Human History

The Most Powerful Weapon Of Influence In Human History | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Picture yourself sunk deep in red crushed velvet sipping icy cold cola with the smell of warm buttered popcorn. As bright images fade and the sonorous sounds of the last movie trailer silence, gaze deeply at fluorescent blue words scrolling upon a pitch black screen: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away”…

 

See yourself today looking back three decades, having witnessed the spark of a booming pop cultural phenomenon known as Star Wars, made possible by a universal weapon – not the futuristic lightsaber of the Jedi Order, but rather the ancient relic of “story telling”.

 

Story is the essence of thought and action

 

When we hear a story coming, the depths of our minds open unconditionally to receive and act upon whatever message is being sent. That’s because story telling is key to how we think, decide, and behave. As the cognitive scientist Mark Turner says, “Narrative imagining—story—is the fundamental instrument of thought. Rational capacities depend on it. It is our chief means of looking into the future, of predicting, of planning, and of explaining. . . . Most of experience, our knowledge, and our thinking is organized as stories.”

Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 27, 2012 2:57 PM

Business can be complex. Leadership can be complex. Certainly our culture and society is complex.


This article gets us thinking -- and includes some fabulous advice -- about how storytelling can help us wade through complex issues, make better decisions, and find a path forward.


Today. Right now. As 2013 approaches, let's continue to use stories well, to help grow and excel, instead of to diminish others.


There are wise and uplifting words in this piece and steps to take. Let's go this route. Happy New Year everyone.

Are you "up" on the best practices of how to examine your company and "fix" key issues. As one of my favorite sales speakers once said (Zig Ziglar):


Is it time for a check-up from the neck up?


When was the last time you conducted a "diagnostic" on your company?

(From the article): Our results suggest that the diversity of a company signals a strong message - diversity contributes to the perception of ethicality. For organisations, having a balanced workforce is central to instill confidence in consumers that this is an ethical organisation worthy of their trust.
