The Four Truths of the Storyteller

The Four Truths of the Storyteller | Things that benefit | Scoop.it

I'm in the business of creating compelling stories. As a filmmaker, I need to understand how stories touch audiences—why one story is an instantly appealing box office success while another fails miserably to connect. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the world’s most talented storytellers—gifted directors, novelists, screenwriters, actors, and other producers—and from them I’ve gleaned insights into the alchemy of great stories. Make no mistake, a hit movie is still an elusive target, and I’ve had my share of flops. But experience has at least provided me with a clear sense of the essential elements of a story and how to tap into its power.

The power of storytelling is also central to my work as a business executive and entrepreneur. Over the years, I’ve learned that the ability to articulate your story or that of your company is crucial in almost every phase of enterprise management. It works all along the business food chain: A great salesperson knows how to tell a story in which the product is the hero. A successful line manager can rally the team to extraordinary efforts through a story that shows how short-term sacrifice leads to long-term success. An effective CEO uses an emotional narrative about the company’s mission to attract investors and partners, to set lofty goals, and to inspire employees.

Sometimes, a well-crafted story can even transform a seemingly hopeless situation into an unexpected triumph....

Peter Guber says the stories that move and captivate people are those that are true to the teller, the audience, the moment, and the mission.

All small to medium businesses can benefit tremendously by adopting computerised business management tools (be they internally server based or cloud based) to systemise and control all operational aspects of their businesses, as well as managing the interactions between the business and its customers or clients. Obviously, a single system that handles the vast majority, if not all, aspects of business operations has many advantages over a multiplicity of systems which may, or may not, communicate well with each other. The challenge for business owners is to discover what tools are available and which of these would best suit their operations and budget. This list of 21 different tools will certainly educate and assist in deciding an appropriate tool for your business.
