5 Ways to Inspire Imagination Through Simple Visual Storytelling

5 Ways to Inspire Imagination Through Simple Visual Storytelling | Serious Play | Scoop.it
You’ll see how the context, and some subtle changes, alter the emotional response you feel. This post showcases imagination - the readers imagination. How do you inspire imagination? Often by providing fewer details. With less detail, your reader has no choice but to let their imagination will fill in the gaps. Their experiences, emotional state, and passions add meaning to the image. When done right, those emotions can touch passions and strike up anxieties that compel action.

5 Visual Storytelling Trends That are Shaping The Future of Communication | Serious Play | Scoop.it

As the Internet of Things and wearable tech take us closer to a perpetually connected world, visual storytelling will be all around us. From having conversations with our favorite characters to playing games that will help feed the homeless, these visual storytelling trends will allow us to live within stories of our making and, in the process, blur the lines between reality and fiction.

Restrained only by the pace of technological innovation, here are five visual storytelling trends that will shape the future of all communication-related fields:

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 12, 2016 6:23 PM

I love articles like this because when I read them, I see just how many leadership skills storytelling helps with.

 

So imagine this -- by focusing on building your storytelling skills, on top of that you are building skills in at least 10 other hard-to-do areas. That's what I call being very efficient!

 

From the list in this post, here are the 10 skills storytelling will help you master:

  1. Listening
  2. Effective communication
  3. Managing expectations
  4. Coaching (story listening is also a coaching activity)
  5. Building up morale
  6. Recognizing great work (better to do through stories than examples)
  7. Better decision making (because you have better information via story listening)
  8. Team building
  9. Staying positive & enthusiastic

 

It makes sense to for leaders to pay attention to building their story skills because of the both large and small impacts they can have on people and organizations. Enjoy this post and story on!
