7 easy ways to collect stories in your organization

7 easy ways to collect stories in your organization | The Course of Integrity | Scoop.it
Learn how to find stories and spread the word of your success today with these tips.

Via Gregg Morris, Karen Dietz
Doug Ross's insight:

We all have stories to tell. Our individual stories make the our collective stories. Our stories define who we are. This is a great way to collect stories in organizations. The trick will be to convince people that storytelling is a value added contribution. We tell stories to children because we believe in them but somehow we forget as we get older

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 6, 2013 6:34 PM

You know, these all sound like great ideas. And you might want to use a few in your organization.


Here's the caveat though -- in my story work with organizations, when they use some of these methods to generate stories, what they sometimes get are NOT stories. More often they are poorly crafted stories.


But the organization thinks what they get are fine. Unfortunately, because they are sub-par, so are their results.


The solution? Either formally train folks in storytelling, or make sure the collected stories are well crafted by someone trained in storytelling. Someone trained in marketing, journalism or PR might not work -- again, personal experience speaks. 


These ideas are creative but treat them wisely. And treat your storytelling seriously to maximize your results.


Thanks Gregg Morris for finding and sharing this article.

Peter Fruhmann's curator insight, March 7, 2013 4:14 AM

This article shows that it's possible to create a storytelling culture in organisations. However, I think that 'tips' are not enough and there are quite some managers who go for the 'quick win' and 'quick read'. Creating a storytelling culture takes time (not toi mention the maintenance of that, the greatest challenge). If anyone is inspired by this article, I would suggest reading Annette Simmon's 'The Story Factor' and 'Whoever tells the best story wins'. It's all in there...

A Happiness Tip From Aristotle

A Happiness Tip From Aristotle | The Course of Integrity | Scoop.it
Do you know the difference between pleasure vs. happiness?

Quickie Question: If you could live 10 years of your life in total bliss - with NO pain - but in the end, not remember any of it - would you do it?

According to Aristotle - the answer should be NO.

 

“We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.”

The Most Powerful Thing About You -- Your Story

The Most Powerful Thing About You -- Your Story | The Course of Integrity | Scoop.it

The most powerful thing about you is your story. But don't talk about yourself all the time; you'll be a bore.

Well, that all depends on whether it is all about you bring the "center of attention" or the "center or exposure". "Exposure" mesans being vulnerable and also being willing to be changed by the story. That is what this article is really all about. And it is also the essence of the talk I am on my way to give at the Pacificaa Graduate Iinstitute's conference on transformational leaderships this weekend.

The questions posed here will help you keep on track and avoid situations where you end ups telling your story from your ego instead of the place of service. It is a great checklist to keep in your back pocket.

Happy story telling!

Thank you Richard Andrews for recommending this article :)

Doug Ross's insight:

Mindfulness Meditation In Ordinary Life

Maybe it's part of our evolutionary biology; we could be wired to count on something as a means of guaranteeing our survival. Simply consider historic frenzies around nationalism, fundamentalism, and now the Tea Party on their triumphes in last night's elections. This is exactly what makes fundamentalism appealing for a lot of: So and so stated it, I believe it, and that's completion of it. Our conditioning leads us to believe that there are answers to the questions which gnaw at us. And if we simply work hard at it we will find those damned answers and be happy, and everything will be fine, no more gnawing. I would adore to believe in something
