Business Storytelling | Cynthia Hartwig

"In this presentation, you’ll see how stories can be used in all kinds of business settings to communicate and connect with employees, customers, colleagues, partners, suppliers, and the media.

 

You’ll learn the mechanics of telling a story with a beginning that hooks you, to a middle that builds tension, to a satisfying end.

 

You’ll learn how to weave rich information (even numbers) with personal insights and emotional power and then experience the thrill of having an audience remember what you’ve said. Many writing exercises are included to help you tap into the mind’s unique hard-wiring that can create a story out of almost any experience."

As we increasingly move towards designing our own eLearning content - it is essential to consider the delivery of that content - the tools are a means to an end - if the design quality is poor then the usefulness of those tools is greatly diminished.

Você consegue “vender” o Vento?

Você consegue “vender” o Vento? | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Por que é tão importante tocar o emocional do target? Veja na prática porque a dica de Philip Kotler é tão efetiva.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

"Simplesmente falar que seu produto é melhor não basta para que o consumidor seja convencido de comprar. Com a vasta variedade de marcas e produtos tentando influenciar e convencer, surgiu a necessidade de se diferenciar de alguma forma.

Foi diante, então, desta necessidade que a abordagem varejista foi substituída por histórias.

Quando uma história é contada no lugar de dados, quando um personagem é criado, o consumidor inevitavelmente cria um laço afetivo com ele. Vínculos são criados e são eles que fazem toda a diferença na hora da compra. Consciente ou inconscientemente.

Esse vínculo fica muito evidente em novelas e filmes. Se sabemos que os personagens são fictícios, por qual motivo nos emocionamos em determinadas cenas?

É resposta é simples: porque a empatia aconteceu."

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process | Serious Play | Scoop.it
I recently heard a TED talk from Brian Goldman, a doctor who admits to having made mistakes. In very emotional language, he describes some costly emergency room mistakes, and then makes a strong case for changing the way that the medical profession addresses such things. He believes that medicine will improve if doctors are free to discuss their mistakes, without judgment, allowing them to learn from each other. But, he continued, because doctors are judged by mistakes, they are too afraid to di

A game? Work should be a game? Does your protestant work ethic rebel? Surely everyone knows people work to survive, they need money – that isn’t a game. Would you dismiss gamification as some new-fangled technical solution to a problem that doesn’t exist? What if I said gamification has been alive and kicking for all my working life? And that is a long time.

How to Give a Killer Presentation

How to Give a Killer Presentation | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Since the first TED conference, 30 years ago, speakers have run the gamut from political figures, musicians, and TV personalities who are completely at ease before a crowd to lesser-known academics, scientists, and writers—some of whom feel deeply uncomfortable giving presentations. Over the years, we’ve sought to develop a process for helping inexperienced presenters to frame, practice, and deliver talks that people enjoy watching. It typically begins six to nine months before the event, and involves cycles of devising (and revising) a script, repeated rehearsals, and plenty of fine-tuning. We’re continually tweaking our approach—because the art of public speaking is evolving in real time—but judging by public response, our basic regimen works well: Since we began putting TED Talks online, in 2006, they’ve been viewed more than one billion times.

On the basis of this experience, I’m convinced that giving a good talk is highly coachable. In a matter of hours, a speaker’s content and delivery can be transformed from muddled to mesmerizing. And while my team’s experience has focused on TED’s 18-minutes-or-shorter format, the lessons we’ve learned are surely useful to other presenters—whether it’s a CEO doing an IPO road show, a brand manager unveiling a new product, or a start-up pitching to VCs.

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, October 24, 4:04 PM

 

Good article on the importance of feedback. It should be: 

 

* non-evaluative

* timely (throughout the course would be the best)

* relevant and specific (relative to learning objectives of the course)

* practical, action-oriented (what to do to improve)

 

There are various technology tools mentioned in the article, but for small groups that I have taught I have simply used e-mail.
