Hi Folks!


Many people have been asking me when my TEDx talk will be available and it's finally be posted for viewing.


During the presentation I not only talk a bit about my background and lessons I've learned about storytelling, but I also share a simply story listening process I learned years ago from storyteller Doug Lipman.


I use the process all the time in my work -- because it's so powerful, and because it is at the root of how work gets done, and how making a difference in the world really happens. Anyone can do this process and I encourage you to try it out.


I hope you enjoy this 15 minutes and begin to relate to stories in this way. Happy story listening!

Yes you have tons of exciting things to say. But you can't learn something new without listening.

Hans Heesterbeek's insight:

I agree with Karin I think we're almost forgotten how to really listen. Quote: f you're listening--like, for real listening, not waiting to talk--then you'll experience this other person who also experiences reality. Unquote. It just to be normal.

I love this piece because it's not about saying "just shut up," it focuses instead on what happens when you do stop talking! Now that's refreshing.


Story listening is a skill to develop, just as much as story telling is. Learning how to evoke stories from others is critical as an influence strategy that cascades into all types of business applications -- from leadership to sales to marketing, training, hiring, and product innovation.


This article by Drake Baer reminds us the gifts from others that silence brings. And he includes very practical advice for being silent. Yeah!

Everyday your team is doing great work.  Sometimes you miss their stories.   Some folks will go home and tell their stories around the dinner table.  Others can't, or won't.

Easy peasy! Enjoy --

Listening is a core storytelling skill. It is the first skill to master in business storytelling.


In my classes/trainings I am always surprised at how amazed people are about the power of listening once they are given permission to do so, and insights they share about about the listening activities we do together.


In this 7 minute TED talk Julian Treasure says we are losing our listening skills.


Perhaps we are. Treasure makes the case for the need to improve our listening skills -- to make connections, create understanding, reduce stress, and build peace.


Certainly we need to become better listeners in order to become better biz storytllers.


In the past I've curated other articles on listening skills and also the importance of audio branding. Just search on those keywords in the TABS section above for more material.


Treasure offers 5 ways to increase our listening skils -- that I think are actually fun -- and presents a model for better ways to listen to others. Yeah!


Enjoy the video and new listening experiences.
