Your New Year’s Storytelling Resolutions | Edgar Tells

Your New Year’s Storytelling Resolutions | Edgar Tells | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"At the end of every year, we tell ourselves a story.  We piece together the narrative of our much kinder, much healthier and much more successful selves. We pack it into an unrealistic yet hopeful wish that we send out into space on December 31st.

 

So we make New Year’s resolutions, only to break them on January 1st. And that’s ok. We are no more than human.  But a resolution that can help us on all levels is rather simple (this is not a self-help book). It’s all about finding your existing strengths and quirky, cool sides, not about reinventing yourself within a year.

 

It’s all about finding your own narrative and, yeah, embracing it. And this concerns both yourself and your brand.  And if you want to make a few more meaningful resolutions for your business, let’s go with storytelling ones."

 

Read the full article to find out more about these storytelling resolutions that will help you find and tell your story this year:

Dig in your own past to find your brand’s storyStart thinking in storiesDo visual storytellingAnd do video storytelling. A lot of itFind the right channels and the right peopleThen let your customers continue the story

Don’t waste your time with face-to-face training

Don’t waste your time with face-to-face training | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Playing to the strengths of different delivery methods can help you create better value and more effective learning interventions, says Kim Whitmore.


If you want to achieve maximum effectiveness from your face-to-face training interventions, and deliver real value for money, you need to ensure that any time spent in the classroom isn’t wasted. Formal learning interventions often have three goals: to instil knowledge (to tell people new things), to develop specific skills (to change their behaviour) and to help people to practise applying their learning. If your face-to-face sessions are trying to achieve all three of these goals, you could save time and costs by creating a different blend.

Skills Converged > Personal Impact Exercise: Just a Minute | Serious Play | Scoop.it

This is technical exercise to practice public speaking. It is designed to focus a presenter’s mind on a specific goal when giving a speech so it is delivered without pause. The exercise also helps to avoid mental blocks or the dreadful feeling of suddenly not knowing what to say or how to continue.

The exercise is loosely based on “Just a Minute”, a BBC Radio 4 radio comedy and television panel game.
