Leadership needs to get adapted on a daily base...

 

Randi Thompson's curator insight, January 6, 2013 7:00 PM

The facts are, any business page you create, in any social media  network, is really the beginning of creating your own community for people to be a part of. Why would they want to join yours?

AnnC's curator insight, January 7, 2013 10:12 PM

Walk beside and develop leadership in your community.

Aizuchi Playbook: Brand Your Business with Story

Aizuchi Playbook: Brand Your Business with Story | SocialMediaDesign | 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!

The power of a spoken word

The power of a spoken word | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Storytellers change their presentation style in different situations. What is suitable for an intimate venue, will not work as well in a large venue. What works for a circle of ten people, does not work in the same way for a circle of twenty-five. Even the hour of day, among many other things, might call for a different capacity or approach. Not everything is possible or fit for storytelling. Amplification might solve a volume issue but it doesn’t do much for intimacy. On the other hand there are situations where it does. The way to gain ‘elasticity’ that will enable a storyteller to adapt as needed, is by learning how to stretch and fold his own wings. It’s like learning how to diminish and increase sound in music. It’s not only changing the volume – the entire sound-production mechanism adapts.

Ahhh -- words of wisdom from one of my colleagues and favorite storytellers -- Llimor Shiponi. This post of hers is all about storytelling elasticity and the power of oral storytelling.

 

In this electronic age when digital storytelling is often viewed as THE SOLUTION -- this post is a reminder that oral storytelling is still the gold standard.

 

Want executive presence? Focus on building oral storytelling skills and sharing your stories in person as often as you can.

 

Want to increase business? Focus on building oral storytelling skills and sharing your stories in person as often as you can.

 

There's no substitute. Enjoy Limor's wise words of wisdom here!

Got your story radar on?


I did not even know what this meant until I read this article by colleague Andrew Nemiccolo and listened to my colleague Shawn Callahan explain it.


Basically it is this -- not everything we hear is a story. And plenty of people are confused about this, as I can attest to in my own story work with clients.


Shawn offers us an activity that will get us to quickly understand the storied world we live in, and helps us know what a story is and is not.


Thans Andrew and Shawn for putting this together! I know I am going to use it with clients. And with myself too so I can continue to develop my story listening skills (those always need attention no matter how long you've been doing this work!).

Shawn Callahan's four story essentials are worth noting: time, place, dialogue, the unexpected

Karen Dietz's comment, January 12, 2013 3:56 PM
Absolutely Jeff. They are key essentials. I'm glad Shawn put these together to share with us.

Are these the 5 virtues of a good Leader?  What would you add?

 

I particularly like the references to Brene Brown.  If you haven't heard her speak on Ted, I highly recommend it.

True or False? Pay Attention to Structure to Tell if a Story is Made Up

True or False? Pay Attention to Structure to Tell if a Story is Made Up | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

"Psychologists and psychotherapists have long relied on the power of narrative storytelling to help their patients make sense of their world. In fact, it's been said that we are our narratives. For evidence that this may be true, pay attention to how people shape their stories about themselves. As it turns out, there is a big difference between the way we narrate events that have really happened to us and those we've invented."

Love this article! We now have a storytelling lie detector kit. As storytelling rises in popularity in a whole host of business applications, keeping our antenna sharp for fabrications is going to be important.

 

Remember these 'tells' and let's keep on focusing on authenticity.
