Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 20, 1:39 PM

This is quite a unique article and one I'm going to refer to a lot in my work. The language used to present these ideas is very imaginative -- and they stick in my mind!


But what does it have to do with stories? Mainly this: the author Charles Day's ideas and explanations are top notch. But we are left wondering "How do I executive on these?" The answer includes storytelling.

  1. Conveying gravity happens through sharing stories about why the company exists and why anyone should care.
  2. Maintaining gravity happens when you've got storytelling imbedded in your culture/daily activities.
  3. Tension is experienced through the tension you build into the stories you share.
  4. Applying heat also happens through storytelling. Stories can go viral and ideas can rapidly come into expression.
  5. Speed is about learning more, and what better way to learn quickly than through sharing stories.


OK -- you get the picture. Enjoy this creative re-think about being a creative company and what it takes. Think of story as your go-tool process to realize more creativity in your organization.

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:

Leaders are accountable to assemble teams and lead them to optimal performance outcomes.

Innovation begins with those people who touch the business across all functional and departmental areas.   Innovation is not dependent on the participation of high-ranking executives — but on any employee that is a student of the business, knows their customers and their specific needs.

 Yes, innovation depends on bold entrepreneurship. But the entity that takes the boldest risks and achieves the biggest breakthroughs is not the private sector; it is the much-maligned state.
