How To Tell A Story—Right Now—From A Master Of Improv

How To Tell A Story—Right Now—From A Master Of Improv | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
What we say matters a great deal, but so does what we don’t say. There are times when you just can’t afford to clam up when called upon to contribute.

 

I love that this article is approaching storytelling skills from the field of improv -- because we receive a couple of good (maybe new) insights.

 

Many of these are good common sense rules that can often be forgotten. And I just like that even though when you read closely, a lot of this material sounds familiar, the voice from the improv world makes me think about some of these tips in different ways. That is always a good thing!

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

Tell Me a Story -- 8 Tips for Powerful Narratives That Drive Social Impact

Tell Me a Story -- 8 Tips for Powerful Narratives That Drive Social Impact | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Stories Matter


As a social marketer and social entrepreneur, I am highly aware of the use of narrative and framing in our daily lives. From politics to the marketplace, who sets the narrative and how they set it has great power. It impacts who cares about an issue, what they hear, and what they are willing to do.

Recently, everywhere I go, people ask me how to tell a more effective story. Advocates, colleagues, and clients observe that the organizations that achieve policy goals, get transformative grants, or seize the market’s interest are the ones that 1) have the resources to disseminate their story, and 2) just tell the better story. I would argue that the real winners are the organizations that actually manage to tell a story at all.

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.
