I LOVE this list -- because it is totally different than what you might expect from yet another article with a storytelling list!


Here the author Dorit Sasson focuses on YOUR relationship with the story you want to tell -- and how to get emotionally clear about it before you ever tell it.


Now why in the heck is this important? Because stories are all about conveying emotion and engaging emotions along the way to delivering a key message and meaning.


But if you are not clear about your emotional connection to the story, chances are you will flop when sharing it. You won't connect to your audience. 


So go grab this list. Check off what you can. Work on what you need to. Get way better at storytelling.

I know that many are thinking about mental illness and gun violence after the tragic incident in Connecticut.  I do not wish to use this as a platform to suggest any particular political course of action.  I do think, however, that this is an appropriate time to share more data that may help others to frame the discussion.

Liam Michelsohn's curator insight, December 11, 2013 9:33 AM

While I realize this post was from awhile  ago, i thouhgt it was a great representaion of how ceritan issues created by densly populated urban areas. The Shootings that occure in chicago seems to be a result of densly populated, poor urban areas in the city. Kayne west say in one of his songs,last year 314 soilders died in iraq, but 509 died in chicago. While this may not put it into perspective exacitly,  we know that war deaths, and these massicure shootings are horrible events that occure in socioty. It seems people tend to overlook what happens every day on city streets in almost any major poor urban area.

This article goes hand-in-hand with another post I curated a few days about about sequencing content.


The author here, Georgina Laidlaw, talks about creating long-term story arcs for your content.


Yes! Great idea! Basically, Laidlaw talks about how a story arc works, and then how to generate content along a story arc over a period of time. Think a long period of time.


She also gives plenty of examples and links to other articles. So there are lots of resources here to dig into.


Laidlaw also mentions how to leverage this kind of content with cross-promotion and spin-offs -- which is different from sequencing stories. Between the two articles I've curated there is lots of food for thought.


As we all get ready for 2013, planning your content around long-term story arcs, along with sequencing your stories will help drive engagement.

Cloud from an abstract concept is still to confining, with hotspots rampant and the world becoming forever integrated with the internet through Wi-Fi Understand it will not be cloud but the atmosphere we live and breath. This is the beginning, disruptions and security issues will always be a problem no matter what realm we dive into. It is all a matter of facing the fears and doubts head on and never backing down. We must see everything through the lens of entrepreneurship and ingenuity. Coupled our compassion to the forward direction of human progress and always remember if we had cowered away from traveling beyond the horizon we may have never lived to walk on the moon. That seems a little over dramatic, but I hope you understand my point.

Emma Lafleur's curator insight, April 23, 2013 5:34 PM

Hong Kong has a mix of Chinese heritage and culture and British ideals. They lived under the British rule for so long that they grew accustomed to the British government system and freedoms. When the UK handed Hong Kong over to China, the people of Hong Kong were afraid that the Chinese government would step in and put them under the same system as the rest of China. China decided to allow Hong Kong to have its own system, but Hong Kong still fears China stepping in and forcing them to change and conform to the rules of the rest of China. Hong Kong is now seeing some protesting and some tension from its people about becoming truly Chinese. They do not want to be Chinese, and they do not want to be British either. They want to form their own country. However, it is highly unlikely that China will let Hong Kong go, but I do wonder if the ideals of Hong Kong, like elections, will slowly spread to the rest of China and create tensions that will cause a change in the Chinese government altogether.

I think the questions posed here to help you figure out your business stories are just terrific. There are 8 of them and will really get you thinking about your business, what makes you unique, and the stories you could possibly tell.


Even if your business or organization (for profit or nonprofit), these questions are important to ask. So how would you answer these questions?

Many companies don't know where to start when it comes to storytelling. Especially, B2B companies. There is a good way to start and that is asking the right questions. And what a better way than to be ask questions geared toward the underutilized marketing tool of storytelling.

A Remarkable Animation Of The History Of The Universe

A Remarkable Animation Of The History Of The Universe | Other Topics | Scoop.it
There’s so much we know that we’ll never see. We can extrapolate the concept of the Big Bang--the explosion of everything in the universe from a focused point.
So projects like Beginning, an animation by Grzegorz Nowiński from Novina Studio, are remarkably important. It tells a sort of good parts version of the history of the universe, from the Big Bang to the rise of humankind. Not only is the piece pure visual delight filled with stark textures and fine particle effects that look particularly stunning when projected on water, Beginning is a grounding piece of context--somewhat imagined, sure--but the sort of imagined thing that very much centers our perspective of reality. The average person sort of knows what the Big Bang looked like because of projects like this one, even if Beginning is far more stylized than photoreal.

It is amazing how big this warehouse is. This warehouse must be a couple of acres because amazon is a big company that mostly everyone in the world buys from. it is also amazing how organized they are with all the inventory they get. Amazon is a great company that is helping people gets jobs to help improve there lives and also the economy in which is struggling to get back on it knees. I wonder were amazon has found this warehouse because there are not so many that have this much space. The workers must have golf carts to get around from one spot to the other. Amazon keep up the good work.

Online shopping is a great way to get your holiday gifts or just to regularly shop. By online shopping we do not have to go to the mall and walk around in all these different stores. What most people do not realize is when we online shop our orders are being processed somewhere and it is usually in big warehouse buildings. These buildings require a lot of space to hold all of a stores merchandise.

The Voices of China's Workers

TED Talks In the ongoing debate about globalization, what's been missing is the voices of workers -- the millions of people who migrate to factories in China and other emerging countries to make goods sold all over the world.

 

Our collective understanding of modern industrialization and globalization needs to go beyond the binary of "oppressors" and "victims."  This lecture explores the voices and lives of Chinese workers that we so often simply see as simply victims of a system, but are full of ambition and agency.

The workers seem to not see their work as bad as we see it. They see it as a opportunity, bette then waht they had before.
Sarah Graham's comment, May 3, 2013 10:54 AM
I think that we often overlook the fact that life and culture is very different in these places. Here, the factory workers probably don't want the I-phones that they are making. We don't think about the people and how they WANT these jobs. These people want to make their life better, just like you and me.
Ryli Smith's comment, May 5, 2013 11:55 AM
In these Chinese factories, they don't view these jobs as harsh or poor treatment because this is better than how they would be doing back in their villages. They want these jobs so bad because they will give them a better life. Also, you have to remember that not all of these Chinese factory workers want to have an iPhone or a Coach purse or Nike shoes, because those things don't have any worth in their culture.

Beautiful, Nonsensical Infographics by Chad Hagen

Beautiful, Nonsensical Infographics by Chad Hagen | Other Topics | Scoop.it

As any graphic designer surely knows, the Internet is home to at least as many bad (or non-) infographics as it is a source for clearly-articulated, visually-compelling ones. This twofold criteria is the subject of Chad Hagen's "Nonsensical Infographics": they're certainly a treat for the eye... but the mind, not so much. Rather, as the title of the series suggests, the vibrant geometries are intended to be metacommentary on the opacity of these purportedly digestible graphics.

 

From the artist:

The science of infographics is an interesting beast. Infographics' level of success is always based on how much and how well they communicate their data—the classic form follows function. In this series, I reversed these roles—form is king and dictates what the infographic communicates. Welcome to the world of fictional visual information.

Woo hoo! Here are two of my favorite colleagues -- David Hutchens and Paul Smith -- talking about Paul's recent book Lead With A Story.


Paul, who works for Proctor and Gamble, shares with us his insights about storytelling and leadership based not only on his research with CEOs around the country, but also from his own corporate expeirence. That's what I love -- a guy in the trenches sharing lessons with us all.


Now David is no slouch either and is one of the earliest practitioners of working with stories in organizations around knowledge management, knowledge transfer, and systems thinking. He's been on my bookshelf for years now, and I always enjoy our conversations together.


This 60-minute video -- from a Google Hangout that happened a few days ago -- is great. I love the questions David asks and I love what Paul shares with us -- stories about PPTs, how to avoid being a boring, and learning who the real hero is. And that's just for starters!


Thanks guys for a terrific session.


Hey -- each one of you is a leader in your own right. Take the time to dig in here and get even better as a leader!
