Billy R Bennett's curator insight, December 11, 2012 9:01 PM

Karen Dietz curated this article by Daryl Conner on four types of burning platforms.  A burning platform is a concept leaders use to define the reason for change.  As Daryl points out this may be based on a negative problem  based appeal or a positive, future opportunity.


Which is better?


Research on personal change has reported greater long term success with positive images.    In most serious change projects, we usually use both. 


You cannot and should not hide business challenges from employees.  


However, once they understand the challenge they will then want to hear your reasoning about why they should consider giving more of themselves to the organization.   I would make it good.

Change: Viral Business Transformation Through Stories

Change is in the air and oh, how I love this article about a newer model for getting organizational change done -- Viral Change!

 

When a company starts working with stories, it requires re-thinking current models because the dynamics of storytelling (i.e memory, simulation, conversation, listening, sharing, ethics, etc.) demand different models and implementation strategies.

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Just how many types of stories are there? The answer is, as usual, it depends who you ask. Various storytelling aficionados categorize stories in different ways, and there are no hard and fast rules.

 

These 5 broad categories and the examples shared in each are really good and will build a good foundation for leadership storytelling. According to Paul Smith in his forthcoming book on leadership storytelling "Lead With A Story" (August 20112), there are actually 21 different categories/applications for leaders to know about and use.

Business Sense: Storytelling--The Secret Key to Leadership

Business Sense: Storytelling--The Secret Key to Leadership | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Why storytelling?
Nothing else works.

 

Slides leave listeners dazed. Prose remains unread. Reasons don’t change behavior. When it comes to inspiring people to embrace some strange new change in behavior, storytelling isn’t just better than the other tools. It’s the only thing that works.

 

Thanks to Karen Dietz
