Great leaders tell great stories. It’s the reason Steve Jobs sold millions of iPods by skipping the technical specifications and simply stating that one thousand songs could now fit in your pocket.

I love this article because it points to 3 specific stories that need to be shared in order for social change to happen.


If you are a business or nonprofit focused on making a difference in the world and advocating for social change, these 3 stories are critical to craft and tell.


As the author Cynthia Starks says, the stories need to be:

  1. The story of Self -- why YOU are passionate about this cause. This is the story that most people/organizations ignore. But if people don't know who you are and why you are involved, minimal trust and influence will be built. 
  2. The story of Us -- which is a story of inclusiveness. In crafting social change stories, people want to come together in community. 
  3. The story of Now -- which is a story that builds urgency and galvanizes action.


This is a quick article with more insights than I shared. So go read it :)

A thoughtful article relating to business and the process involved in getting your company 'story' out there.

Jose Nevarez's comment, June 27, 2013 9:51 AM
Great article Karen. I can see that many business are asking to do thing faster and shorter because young people "don't like to read". Are we sending the wrong message. Are we teaching our children to be impatient? I believe great stories needs time to develop, to be a lasting experience.
Karen Dietz's comment, June 29, 2013 2:58 PM
I love your comments Jose and yes, I think we are sending the wrong message. I believe young people do like to read and perhaps they are just being more selective about when and how. And I hope businesses are in a knee-jerk reaction about only creating very short stories because I think they will be doing both their audiences and their customers a disservice. All in all, I think it's a balance between short and long-form storytelling. Many thanks for your input.
