These three stories illustrate the changing nature of leadership from the last millennium.  Highly engineered, inflexible, bureaucratic systems are giving way to more systemic, humanistic systems with emphasis on strengths, community and national values, vs. the tunnel vision values of the profit focus of the last century.   ~  Deb

Interestingly, the amount of time leaders spent on the issue had little impact on their success; the correlation was barely significant. But how they spent their time, including the number of sources of influence they applied, had a huge impact.

You are in a tough situation Carolin and it reminds me of the go-go days of bank mergers when I was consulting in that industry. And yes, silos became stronger because of high degrees of uncertainty. Your instincts are right -- the more people can get to know each other across silos, the walls will start becoming more permeable. Story sharing across groups (one-to-one or in group settings) is really critical here.

And thanks for sharing Carolin!

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each

Five types of leadership storytelling & when to use each | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Just how many types of stories are there? The answer is, as usual, it depends who you ask. Various storytelling aficionados categorize stories in different ways, and there are no hard and fast rules.

 

These 5 broad categories and the examples shared in each are really good and will build a good foundation for leadership storytelling. According to Paul Smith in his forthcoming book on leadership storytelling "Lead With A Story" (August 20112), there are actually 21 different categories/applications for leaders to know about and use.

In this free podcast my co-author, Lori Silverman (of our new book Business Storytelling for Dummies) chats about the role of stories in organizational change.


The podcast is 36:31 minutes long. Organizational change efforts have a notorius failure rate of about 70%. Stories can make a significant dent in that statistic since story sharing throughout the change cycle is critical to keeping the project focused. Stories also provide tangible evidence of change progress that keeps the effort going. And stories engage employees very directly in the change process, particularly if accompanied by consistent recognition.


If you've ever had questions about how stories are important to successful change efforts, Lori has insights to share with you here.

Brent MacKinnon's curator insight, December 21, 2013 7:19 AM

Stories are pull technology that can humanize the process of talking about work. There is more potential to connect to insights and possible changes you can make when hearing stories.

It's the nature of business to create panic and chaos. Everyone dreams of a company that runs smoothly and efficiently, but ambitious entrepreneurs, managers and salespeople can't help but push for speed. Rather than slow down on a product release or turn down a customer or two until processes are ready, decisions are made that tax resources and send teams into a frenzy.

It used to be said that the only thing constant is change.  However, these days we can add another - chaos.  As we all experience it, it is good to adopt skills that will help us cope rather than set expectations to eliminate it.

"Embracing change requires you yourself to experience the changes you’re asking your organization to undergo."

 

Our client is now desperately hoping his division’s leaders will embrace change, maybe even a Blue Ocean Strategy. They’ve reached a dangerous tipping point that could risk the future of their business.

John Michel's curator insight, April 10, 2013 8:04 AM

In 2009, Steve McKee published “When Growth Stalls” in which he notes that 41.2% of nearly 5,700 companies he studied stalled in the previous decade. The number of reasons why are staggering, namely: a failure to focus, no competitive point of difference, and weak brand images and identities, to name just a few.

Given this reality, we can turn to science to explain why businesses stagnate. Growing research from the neurosciences and cognitive sciences reveal that change really is difficult for humans. Resistance comes from three forces:
