Mindsets for the Future: Storyevolution Conference

Mindsets for the Future: Storyevolution Conference | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

A leader's mindset must be able to embrace these apparent conflicting realities – inflexible strategies and visions that must remain vital. This conference will introduce you to storyevolution – the tool to building and sustaining a new state of mind, your mindset for the future.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 21, 2013 6:02 PM

Woo hoo! Just want to share with you a one-day story conference coming up in May 2013 in Wash. DC that I hope you can attend.


Yes, this is a bit self-serving because I'll be speaking there. Regardless, I think the material from the other presenters is going to be dynamite.


This is different from most conferences. This isn't about story basics. It's about how to work with stories in your organization to bring it forward into the future you envision. It's about clarity in complexity, and the evolving nature of story dynamics. Sounds heady. It's not.


The entire conference will be a storied experience. And it is designed for maximum participation, peer learning, and practical action steps you can implement -- and all grounded in solid well-tested frameworks.


Forget jumping from speaker to speaker. Forget leaving the conference and wondering what you should do next. 


Join us for a grounded experience -- guided by the leading thinkers and doers in story -- where YOU are the focus. And where you come away with not only a deeper understanding of story, deeper conversations about meeting organizational challenges with story, but also knowing what your next steps are.


Hope to see you there!

A Presentation App That Forces You To Tell Better Stories

A Presentation App That Forces You To Tell Better Stories | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it
The dangers of bad a PowerPoint presentation are manifold. It might just mean putting your audience to sleep, or running afoul of the High Council of Information Design.

 

Now here's something that looks promising! I'm downloading the storytelling app now to my iPad so I can start playing with it. I'll let you know how it goes.

 

We all need better and easier tools to create digital stories. Part of the trick is figuring out which one YOU like. So I'll keep posting different apps and technologies that appear so you can try them out and decide which one works best for you.

 

Have fun with this one! If you try it out, what do you think of it?

Aizuchi Playbook: Brand Your Business with Story

Aizuchi Playbook: Brand Your Business with Story | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

Colleague Andrew Nemiccolo has just published his new e-book on business storytelling and I really like it.

I know -- you are thinking, "What?! ANOTHER ebook on business storytelling??" Yep, and it's good. Here's what I like about it:

1. The focus on 'back-channel' communication and listening
2. Tackling being vulnerable and getting comfortable sharing your personal stories
3. Advice to NOT find stories, but find experiences instead
4. Steps for figuring out who your audience is first before you share a story
5. All the great story prompts for figuring out and organizing the experiences you want to share
6. Tips for creating a story bank of your experiences

I am not crazy about the definition of 'story' that Andrew uses -- basically for him, anything is a story. Well, that's not helpful and actually leads to a lot of confusion for people. A Tweet is not a story, but it can be part of a larger business narrative. Knowing the difference will help you better target your storytelling efforts.

The book is primarily focused on marketing and branding. Even so, the information and advice can be use in a whole host of other biz story applications.

Go grab the easy-to-read-and-digest book and get smarter about working with stories in business.

I have no affiliation with Andrew or his company other than a promise to chat over coffee sometime. Enjoy the book!
