Using storytelling in business

Using storytelling in business | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Good leaders need to understand the power of narrative if they want to influence others. Matt McAllister finds out why storytelling is an essential business skill

 

From films to football matches, and from adverts to anecdotes, every aspect of our lives is made up of stories.

 

In his seminal screenwriting book, Story, creative writing lecturer Robert McKee says that we’re so obsessed with stories because they mirror our lives – they are metaphors for our hopes and fears, our successes and failures.

 

Business, too, is stitched together by stories. The stories that the employer and candidate exchange during interviews. Stories about brands. The stories used in coaching sessions. The stories put forward during times of change. The stories used to motivate teams.

 

If successful, these stories will resonate with customers, clients and employees, who will link aspects of their personal and professional lives with the narratives.

 

“Storytelling is useful in far more situations than most leaders realise,” says Paul Smith, author of Lead With a Story: A Guide to Crafting Business Narratives That Captivate, Convince and Inspire.

 

“The five most common situations are: setting a vision; defining culture and values; inspiring the organisation; teaching important lessons; and explaining who you are and what you believe. The last one can be applied to both an individual – their image, a brand or an entire company.”

 

Smith adds that storytelling is a far more effective management technique than simply telling people to do something.

Time for Leaders to Emerge from New Places inside the Organization

Time for Leaders to Emerge from New Places inside the Organization | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Top leaders can’t hide behind hierarchy, which is a declining construct anyway.
Agile and resilient organizations – and people – will outperform competitors.

This means that people will be deployed in flexible project teams rather than confined to a single pre-defined job, but at the same time, individual accountabilities will be clear, making the organization results-oriented as well as fast-moving.

Why Our Stories Matter

Why Our Stories Matter | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

In Part I: An Invitation to Narrative, there is a fantastic little section written by Jacqui Banaszynski, a Knight Chair Professor at the Missouri School of Journalism, that I may just have to print out and hang up on my bulletin board. She writes:

 

They say language makes us human. That notion is being challenged as we discover that apes have language. Whales have language. I welcome them into our fold. I’m not threatened by them, quite frankly, because I think that stories make us human. Only by telling them do we stay so.

 

Stories are our prayers. Write and edit them with due reverence, even when the stories themselves are irreverent.

 

Stories are parables. Write and edit and tell yours with meaning, so each tale stands in for a larger message, each story a guidepost on our collective journey.

 

Stories are history. Write and edit and tell yours with accuracy and understanding and context and with unwavering devotion to the truth.

 

Stories are music. Write and edit and tell yours with pace and rhythm and flow. Throw in the dips and twirls that make them exciting but stay true to the core beat. Readers hear stories with their inner ear.

 

Stories are our soul. Write and edit and tell yours with your whole selves. Tell them as if they are all that matters. It matters that you do it as if that’s all there is.

Everybody agrees that "teamwork" is crucial to business success--but few people bother define what "teamwork" really is.

Based on that conversation, here are the seven characteristics of truly extraordinary teams:
