Spielberg "meets" Presentation Zen. (Outstanding Presentations: Storytelling Techniques http://t.co/ZBVarwX1 XLNT system!

 

Enjoy this SlideShare presentation on how to create a compelling presentation using storytelling and story structure.  

 

I really like the processes the author uses to craft his stories and want to try out some of the ones I haven't worked with yet.

 

Have fun with this one!

Storytelling and Structure…Not So Much

Storytelling and Structure…Not So Much | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

This article by my colleague and friend Annette Simmons rocks.

 

What's the message?  That knowing story structure doesn't help you tell your stories better.

 

I agree 100%.  All my clients say to me "Tell me the structure of a good story because once I know that, I'll always be able to tell a great story."

 

Balderdash.  Our analytic minds want to know all about story structure but that knowledge does not help anyone tell a great story. Besides, we already inherently know story structure because we share stories very well and all the time in conversation. When we are building our storytelling skills, we are moving out of conversational storytelling into deliberate and conscious mastery of story.

 

So what does make someone a compelling storytller? Telling, coaching, practicing, telling and more telling.  Sounds counter-intuitive I know.  But that's what works.

 

I know, I know...it's my mantra these days: work with a story professional and keep telling stories to improve your skills. You will be amazed.

 

Many thanks to Gregg Morris @greggvm for bringing Annette's post to my attention.

Essential Skills for 21st Century Survival: Part 6: Storytelling

Essential Skills for 21st Century Survival: Part 6: Storytelling | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

"In today’s polarized and fractured narrative landscape, the winners are those who can get above the noise and weave new mythologies that act as a beacon of light for the path ahead."

 

How here's some great food for thought about storytelling, how our cultural landscape is changing, and new stories that are emerging via businesses. The author suggests we've fallen into a myth gap.  As the author says, "People are disillusioned and lacking trust, and a new story infused with simplicity, aesthetics, beauty and grace will go far."

 

Are your stories big enough? Are they sustainable over time and space? Do your stories touch on the qualities the author lists?

 

I would love to know what do you think about this article & video and how it might shape your thinking/actions in 2012.....
