My dad had a saying over his desk which read: "Time waste is the easiest of all and the hardest to correct becasue it does not litter the floor".

Thank you Hans Heesterbeek for finding and sharing this video!


Here is what I love about it: my colleague Shawn Callahan in Australia made this simiple yet elegant and engaging video that shows how leaders can effectively use stories to create change.


The 3 minute video goes over what we typically do that doesn't work. And then provides alternative ways that do engage people in supporting a change effort.


Good one Shawn! Thanks for putting it together and making it available.  It is also a terrific example of Anecdotes biz storytelling in its own right.

Why do marketers revel in military jargon? Must we really rally troops to deploy conquest ads or fire quick hits of bleeding-edge apps?

Leading Through The Power Of Persuasion & Storytelling

Leading Through The Power Of Persuasion & Storytelling | Social Mercor | Scoop.it
Taking part in the adventure of persuading others, sweeping them up into an idea, an unexpected action or an unproven vision, is a wonderful experience. The ability to create excitement all around you is what leadership is about.

 

Good grief -- I like some of what this article says but there is one glaring error: the confusion between persuasion and influence, particularly for leaders.

 

So what the heck is the difference between the two, why is it important, and what has it got to do with storytelling?

 

Well -- persuasion is getting someone to do something. Parents use persuasion all the time: "Finish your dinner or you won't get dessert." Or "Sit Fido and you'll get a treat!" Bosses use persuasion too: "Finish this report by X date or forget that promotion." We all use persuasion.

 

Influence however, is the power or capacity to cause an effect in indirect or intangible ways. Influence is more often 'showing' what needs to be done which then moves someone to take action -- hopefully in a desireable way.

 

There are many facets to influence including reciprocity, commitment, social proof and others (see Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by R. Cialdini, 2006).

 

Leadership at the highest levels is about influence, not persuasion. Management is about persuasion. Confusing persuasion and influence creates leadership that can feel more like manipulation than willing participation.

 

Storytelling -- IMHO -- lies squarly in the camp of influence. And leaders definitely need to master storytelling as an way to both engage and influence.

 

The list this author has created for leaders to focus on to be persuasive is mostly all about influential qualities to imbue in a leader's storytelling. Except the first one -- threats and consequences. Outlining global consequences if an organization does not change can be part of an influential conversation. Threats, not so much. That's pure persuasion.

 

Go read the rest of the list and let me know what you think!
