Seven Deadly Sins of Business Storytelling

Seven Deadly Sins of Business Storytelling | Teaching a Modern Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
Bovee & Thill's Online Magazines for Business Communication's insight:

When it comes to persuasion, companies traditionally appeal to left side of the brain, using logic and reason.


However, persuasion occurs just as much (if not more) through emotion. Daniel Pink, author of Drive, writes, “Right-brain dominance is the new source of competitive advantage.” Tapping the right side of the brain allows for deeper engagement by uniting an idea with an emotion.


The best way to do this? Tell a compelling story. . .

15 Phrases That Build Bridges Between People

Bovee & Thill's Online Magazines for Business Communication's insight:

Business is changing. The experts sure seem to think so. Every day, some new article hypes a brave new world of egalitarian openness and collaboration. That might be true if you work for yourself.


For the rest of us, it’s still a winner-take-all, command-and-control world. Always has been, always will be. The experts may own the language, but not reality.


When leaders feel threatened or the ink runs red, they rarely tap into their talent for solutions. More often, they cut communication and withdraw behind closed doors. Corporate culture can overcome many hurdles, but never human nature. . .

What Storytelling Does to Our Brains, and Why Students Should Hone Their Storytelling Skills

What Storytelling Does to Our Brains, and Why Students Should Hone Their Storytelling Skills | Teaching a Modern Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
Storytelling is one of the most overused and underused techniques at the same time. In this post, we are revealing what storytelling does to our brains.
Bovee & Thill's Online Magazines for Business Communication's insight:

We all enjoy a good story, whether it’s a novel, a movie, or simply something one of our friends is explaining to us that they’ve experienced. But why do we feel so much more engaged when we hear a narrative about events?


It’s in fact quite simple. If we listen to a powerpoint presentation with boring bullet points, a certain part in the brain gets activated. Scientists call this Broca’s area and Wernicke’s area. Overall, it hits our language processing parts in the brain, where we decode words into meaning. And that’s it, nothing else happens.


When we are being told a story though, things change dramatically found researchers in Spain. Not only are the language processing parts in our brain activated, but any other area in our brain, that we would use when experiencing the events of the story are too. . .


Note: Bovee & Thill are the only business communication textbook authors to explain how to build reader interest with storytelling techniques. A chart explains the six types of storytelling detail and an illustration demonstrates storytelling on Paragonia's website. The discussion of storytelling includes writing for electronic media and oral presentations.

Six Dramatic Changes That Are Affecting Business Communication Instruction

The teaching of business communication is undergoing a transformation because of six dramatic changes that are explained in this video.


These factors shape a different workplace in the 21st century and require students to learn new and better ways to communicate.


For example, the trend away from the old communication model as a monologue, as in a typical sales letter, to the new communication model as a dialogue, such as on Facebook business page, is not a fad. It's a fundamental shift in the way we communicate.


Companies are no longer in control of their messages and must adapt to a world in which customers and other stakeholders demand to participate in and influence the conversation.
