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.

Visual aid for a story-based evaluation method

Visual aid for a story-based evaluation method | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

These illustrations are computer generated maps of the overlap between how an organization describes itself (to donors) and how storytellers describe the organization or some relevant social problem.

WOW -- what a great article! Using story word maps we can now do gap analyses showing the differences (or similarities) between the stories an organization tells about itself and the stories a community, customers, or the press share about it. This is so cool!

As this article demonstrates with the organizations they analyzed, you can clearly see where the intersections a, where the gaps are, and where the missed opportunities are. The author uses visual word maps to show us the results. The fact that the results are visual is fabulous! And easy to grasp/Interpret.

Oh, I can't wait to start playing with this. It doesn't appear as if there are easy tools yet to do this, so generating the word maps will take time and effort. But I think well worth it.

Any app developers out there who can take this and run with it? I hope so.

In the meantime, start thinking about how you can apply these principles and visuals to your biz story work. I can't wait to see your results!

Thank you to colleague and fellow curator Kat Hansen for finding and sharing this article.

A Strategic Story about Strategic Storytelling

A Strategic Story about Strategic Storytelling | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Over the years, I have used strategic storytelling workshops to help drive key messages, build teams, and enhance communication skills.  Today, I share the story of how my interest in that began, and why I frequently use it in my leadership ...

 

LOL -- stories do the work again!!

 

What happens in an organization when a project you've been devoted to comes to a screaching halt? You turn to storytelling.

 

Oh, this author Karen Hurt is not talking about the "Ain't it awful" stories you could tell. She instead shares how she kept the project alive using the power of storytelling.

 

This is a great read and an enjoyable story. And when you get blocked -- start storytelling in healthy and constructive ways.

 

These are fab lessons here for anyone working in organizations, or anyone who gets roadblocked and needs a way around. Stories, story tools and story processes just might be what you need!
