Great concept.

Official AndreasCY's curator insight, April 17, 2013 12:53 AM
Colleague David Lee once again comes through with a great blog post all about business origin stories. Here he gives us the origin story of the Make A Stand Lemon-aid. It is a terrific example of the power of an origin story. Don't have a social cause that got you started? Not so fast -- sure you do! You were passionate about some problem you wanted to solve. That's what we want to hear about. This goes for whether you are an entreprenuer or a huge enterprise. We all have our origin stories. They are the lifeblood of organizations. Follow the tips Lee talks about in the article, watch the video for inspiration, and let your passion show!

Should we be suspicious of stories?

Should we be suspicious of stories? | Storytelling 4 business | Scoop.it

"We are wired for stories. “Evolutionary biologists confirm that 100,000 years of reliance on stories have evolutionarily hardwired a predisposition into human brains to think in story terms,” says research scientist and engineer Kendall Haven.

 

Tyler Cowen is a professor of economics at George Mason University and writes for the economics blog Marginal Revolution. In his TEDxtalk he says that we should be suspicious of stories. Watch it on the TED site or watch the YouTube version below."

António Maneira's curator insight, April 14, 2013 6:40 PM

Great talk! Understanding how stories work is fundamental for increasing our awarenes and critical thinking. Human beings seem to be wired to stories, maybe because stories are good to simplify our the way think. The author argument is that simplification is not that good. Sometimes it is important to be messy. Open minded. Incomplete. Agnostic...  

Semantic hypermedia storytelling can provide ways of teling (or not telling stories) that can be a lot complex, even messy, open ended and incomplete. 

 

Insight Narrator's comment, April 15, 2013 7:36 AM
Championing the need for evidence based stories that are solid, bold and brave. The foundations of robust data sources are imperative, but stories that are bold and brave tap into our need to emotional connect with the evidence. Being able to master both improves both reach and influence.

Fellow curator Kim Zinke for How To Find And Tell Your Story here at Scoop.it found this piece and I thought you all might want to have this list to explore too.


Some of the articles in the list I've curated. Some books I've referenced. Some pieces are new to me. I'm not sure of the quality of all of them but I think they are worth checking out. A bunch are from the screenwriting or fiction world, but hey -- those can be really useful in biz storytelling.


So we will have fun exploring. 


I've seen some posts lately from other curators that I'm going to bring your way in the next day or too. Still trying to catch up after a death in the family on top of work and teaching. My apologies for being so far behind.


And thank you to Kim for this article!

The Mystery of Storytelling: Julian Friedmann at TEDxEaling

How we tell stories seems to be a mysterious process that millions around the world want to be able to do, but 99.9% effectively fail. Why is it so hard for storyteller and audience to be one? What we communicate can change the lives of the writer and the audience. However, why stories matter and how to tell them better may not be as mysterious as it seems. Julian Friedmann has worked with writers for over 40 years; he believes understanding that storytelling is more about the audience than the writer will result in better storytelling.

Gregg Morris's curator insight, November 29, 2012 8:04 PM

[A really great app!]

 

Last week, my nine-year-old daughter Jane and I were interviewed on NPR about some of our favorite apps for the family. One of our picks was Story Dice. This attractively-designed iOS app lets you roll virtual dice that have a number of different symbols on their faces. You can select the number of dice per throw (from 1 to 10). Every time you shake the phone or tap the screen you get a new throw of the dice. I'm not sure how many different symbols there are, but I see new ones all the time, and we have played with this app quite a bit.

 

I imagine there are lots of uses for Story Dice, but our favorite use is to hold family story-telling contests.

Tell Stories & You'll Boost Sales (Because of How Human Brains Are Wired)

Tell Stories & You'll Boost Sales (Because of How Human Brains Are Wired) | Storytelling 4 business | Scoop.it
Storytelling appeals to how the brain processes information. Here's five ways to make that work for your business.

 

When you're selling your product, do you simply go into the nuts-and-bolts of how it works, or do you tell a story?

 

People ask me what I do at Emergenetics International, and I could easily say I own a human capital consulting firm that provides assessments for employee development, recruitment, and retention. That'd be informative, sure. But you need to be prepared to say more, if you want to draw people in.

 

I tell my story--about how I grew up sitting at my family's kitchen table, listening to my mother and grandmother trade tales of the classroom. I come from a long line of teachers and these conversations of how Susie solved math problems or why Johnny acted out in class inspired me.
