Presentation Zen - The key to storytelling is in the giving, not the getting

Presentation Zen - The key to storytelling is in the giving, not the getting | Serious Play | Scoop.it

The key to success with presentation—and storytelling in general—is to focus not on getting approval or a particular response from the audience, but on giving something meaningful to them. That is, it’s not about getting but about giving.

Trumans's curator insight, February 23, 4:22 PM

As human beings we love a good story, which is why theatre, cinema and TV are so popular. So, how well can you tell the story of your business?  Maybe, it's something to brush up on.
On the other hand, whenever I've visited a new client, gone to have a look at their factory or new office, I enjoy hearing "their story" and they really enjoy telling it. Their business is precious to them , and they've had hurdles to jump to get it to where it is now. So, apart from being a good storyteller, it's important to be a good listener too!

Uma Sundaram's curator insight, February 23, 11:23 PM

judyhouse's curator insight, February 24, 8:10 AM

The need to take a story and put it into an appropriate avenue of communication is important especially if innovation can let us be better storytellers and engage others more effectively.

9 Steps for Using Digital Storytelling in the Classroom | Learn2Earn | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"Turn the ancient expression of storytelling into an engaging task for your 21st century students by adding a media component. Called digital storytelling, this “is the practice of combining narrative with digital content, including images, sound, and video, to create a short movie, typically with a strong emotional component.”  Not only does this help bring your classroom into the new age of educational technology, but it gets kids excited about writing and sharing their work."

Welcome to Narratopia

Welcome to Narratopia | Serious Play | Scoop.it
The challenge of natural story sharing

So I started to think of what sort of game might work with the way people naturally tell stories in conversation. I thought about how:
Storytellers negotiate for the floor by submitting a story abstract to the group. Audience members accept, reject, or modify proposed stories during the story abstract.
Storytellers embed in their story evaluation statements that prove the story is worth listening to, and communicate their intent in telling it. Audience members redirect stories as they are being told by providing feedback, questions, and corrections.
Storytellers negotiate the end of their story (and the return to the normal conversational rhythm) in the story's coda. Audience members participate in fitting the story into the conversation by asking questions about it and discussing aspects of it.
Audience members respond to stories with related stories, building chains of connected stories in collaborative exploration of a topic.
This all happens without anyone being fully aware that it is happening. You can watch people do all of these things in any casual conversation anywhere in the world, and probably could watch the same thing happen thousands of years ago.

I go on about story sharing being the heart of effective storytelling. But what is that really? Here story colleague Cynthia Kurtz has written a brilliant -- and well thought out -- article on what story sharing is, how it happens, what it looks and feels like.


Even better, she puts it together in a game for us. Yay! Get your story game on. Read this post and get better and the dynamics of storytelling.


And many thanks go to @Gregg Morris for originally finding and sharing Cynthia's work. Thanks Gregg!
