Hi Folks!


Many people have been asking me when my TEDx talk will be available and it's finally be posted for viewing.


During the presentation I not only talk a bit about my background and lessons I've learned about storytelling, but I also share a simply story listening process I learned years ago from storyteller Doug Lipman.


I use the process all the time in my work -- because it's so powerful, and because it is at the root of how work gets done, and how making a difference in the world really happens. Anyone can do this process and I encourage you to try it out.


I hope you enjoy this 15 minutes and begin to relate to stories in this way. Happy story listening!

Empathy, Neurochemistry, and the Dramatic Arc: Paul Zak at the Future of StoryTelling 2012

"The emotionally charged story recounted at the beginning Dr. Paul Zak's film—of a terminally ill two-year-old named Ben and his father—offers a simple yet remarkable case study in how the human brain responds to effective storytelling."

 

Want to know how a dramatic story structure affects our brain chemistry and leads us to make donations? Then watch this very engaging and informative 5 minute video!

 

The video explains several neuroscience research projects that were conducted (don't worry - the video is NOT boring) about the effects a short dramatic story had on people's brains and behavior.

 

And it explains how to structure a story to make the biggest impact. I wish all scientist could do such a great job in explaining their work and its meaning. Enjoy!

How to Create a Culture of Storytelling | Philanthropy for All

How to Create a Culture of Storytelling | Philanthropy for All | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

There’s no denying it, storytelling can seem challenging. But I’ve taken the stance that storytelling can be demystified and that anyone can do it.

 

Read the full article to find five tips for creating a culture of storytelling at your organization:

1. Communicate to all staff members what kind of stories you are looking for

2. Hold a staff meeting to openly discuss what storytelling is, why it matters and why all staff members play a vital role in it

3. Make time at your staff meetings to tell stories.

4. Schedule an ongoing time to casually meet with staff from programs to talk about updates from their work and utilize it as a time to probe into any interesting stories they might have.

5. Start your own story bank for future reference.

This speaks of staff members, but it could be students in any course as well.
