Caroline - so true!
Philippe Trebaul's comment, September 9, 2013 11:48 AM
You're all totally true. I really agree with you. I would add that "followers" are (normally, except for fake profiles...) persons. And persons MUST be respected. I agree too with you, Sigrid, concerning the fact that influence could be better mesured by interactions. Thx a lot for your reactions. It's very kind from you! Have a great week. Best regards :) Philippe

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.

 

Thanks Gregg Morris @greggvm for finding and sharing this article!

The 50 Best Social Psychology Books on Persuasion, Influence and Understanding Your Brain

The 50 Best Social Psychology Books on Persuasion, Influence and Understanding Your Brain | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Have you ever wanted to be more persuasive, convincing, or if nothing else, understand how others try to influence you? …Of course! Who hasn’t?

 

Understanding how storytelling works in persuasion, influence, and change, and the research/neuroscience that informs it all is critical if anyone is going to work with stories effectively.

 

And hooray -- Gregory Ciotti has put together his list of favorite books that help us understand persuasion, influence, change, and stories more deeply. We'll all become more articulate and better at our craft -- whether you are a consultant, storyteller, entrepreneur or CEO.

 

Some of these I've read, some I haven't -- so I can't wait to dig into this list myself.

 

I hope we all learn lots and gain lots of useable insights for our work. Enjoy!

I LOVE this list -- because it is totally different than what you might expect from yet another article with a storytelling list!


Here the author Dorit Sasson focuses on YOUR relationship with the story you want to tell -- and how to get emotionally clear about it before you ever tell it.


Now why in the heck is this important? Because stories are all about conveying emotion and engaging emotions along the way to delivering a key message and meaning.


But if you are not clear about your emotional connection to the story, chances are you will flop when sharing it. You won't connect to your audience. 


So go grab this list. Check off what you can. Work on what you need to. Get way better at storytelling.

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!

 

And thank you Gregg Morris @greggvm for originally finding and sharing this article!
