Jim Signorelli,Story-Lab's curator insight, February 9, 7:21 PM

This is Chapter 1 from the soon-to-be released book, Putting Stories To Work, written by my colleague Shawn Callahan. 


There are a number of books on the subject of storytelling for leaders, but few that provide both theory and practice.  Shawn's book is  the exception.  It is replete with scientific evidence as well as practical advice on why and how oral storytelling is the best tool for motivating, inspiring and influencing others. Whether you are leading a large company, managing a small team, or you are in sales of any kind, if your success depends on your skills as a communicator, this is a "must read." 


The book will be available soon both in hardback and ebook form.  In the meantime you can get a peek under the tent of what I'm certain will become the seminal work on oral storytelling for business.  


This article was curated by Jim Signorelli, President and Founder of Story-Lab, conducting storytelling for business workshops throughout the U.S.

How to Hire for Emotional Intelligence

How to Hire for Emotional Intelligence | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

We know from research (and common sense) that people who understand and manage their own and others’ emotions make better leaders. They are able to deal with stress, overcome obstacles, and inspire others to work toward collective goals. They manage conflict with less fallout and build stronger teams. And they are generally happier at work, too. But far too many managers lack basic self-awareness and social skills. They don’t recognize the impact of their own feelings and moods. They are less adaptable than they need to be in today’s fast-paced world. And they don’t demonstrate basic empathy for others: they don’t understand people’s needs, which means they are unable to meet those needs or inspire people to act.

(From the article): People want leaders who are honest and realistic. However, they are also attracted to leaders who are upbeat and positive.


Leaders who demonstrate an ability to look on the brighter side of things, and who show resilience after a failure are able to keep their teams upbeat and motivated as well. When a good leader does have something to complain about, they don’t vent to their team members.

The Truth About Wasting Time At Work - Forbes

The Truth About Wasting Time At Work - Forbes | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

If you look at the standard organizational model, the first thing you notice is that it’s a pyramid. It is narrower at the top than at the bottom. There are a lot of worker bees at the bottom of the pyramid — that’s why the base of the pyramid is broader than the top of the pyramid is. There are fewer managers than employees, and there are a very small number of executives at the top of the organization, calling the shots.

Since the typical organization has lots of non-management employees and only a small number of senior-level leaders, it stands to reason that every minute of a highly-placed executive’s day has great impact. The decisions C-level leaders make have huge ramifications on everything from the company’s stock price tomorrow to the firm’s existence or nonexistence five years from now.

Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable

Today’s Best Leaders Are Reflective and Vulnerable | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
Lagging performance is among the most glaring indications something is awry in an organization. Then there are the quieter, less splashy but still foreboding signals: a culture of distrust, the uncomfortable undiscussables, staff disengagement, disorganization — all of which indicate a disconnect that could cost a business tremendously if not addressed.
 

When confronted with a problem, or better yet, before it becomes a problem, leadership consultants Bob Anderson and Bill Adams recommend organizational leaders first turn inward to drive lasting change.

Leadership Training for Entrepreneurs

Leadership Training for Entrepreneurs | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
In stark contrast to the corporate world — where people in large companies are promoted into leadership roles only after working their way up through the ranks — leadership development in the startup arena often happens overnight or even by accident.
Entrepreneurs often have to go without management training, development coaching or a course called “CEO 101.” They have to figure out out how to be a leader on the fly.
And because teaching yourself to lead is no easy feat, especially when you’re managing a rapidly expanding company, you may well fail. That’s part of the reason 36 percent of new businesses fold after just two years and 90 percent of technology startups simply don’t make it.

Analyst estimates suggest that the companies in the Fortune 500 still lose a combined $31.5 billion per year from employees failing to share knowledge effectively. By trying to recreate the wheel, repeating others’ mistakes, or wasting time searching for specialized information or expertise, employees incur productivity costs and opportunity costs for the organization.

Where are the knowledge flows in your organisation? Are they comprehensive and open to all?

donhornsby's curator insight, December 2, 2015 7:57 AM

(From the article): Leaders tend to place a disproportionate emphasis on tools like training materials or knowledge portals partly because they are easier to manage and control. It is less clear how to manage amorphous, interactive learning processes; you can’t simply force coworkers to interact and share experiences. However, more often than not, leaders simply need to remove obstacles that discourage people from seeking or sharing knowledge and learning vicariously. They can create a structure that allows these interactions to take place organically by focusing on three steps: (see article for the three steps)
