Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 23, 2013 1:53 PM

I read lots of leadership articles and obviously, I alos read lots of biz storytelling articles. When the 2 topics converge it is often more about how leaders can use stories in their work.


That's helpful and this article is a bit different. For one, it never mentions storytelling. So why the heck did I curate it?


Because the article does talk about the inner life of a leader -- how they need to be aware and present -- and the habits therein that lead to greater success. And when experts talk about 'executive presence' the habits mentioned in this article are the underpinings.


So as I read this piece I automatically started to think about how storytelling links in. My conclusion? Storytelling is the vehicle for each of the 5 points made.


When the author Mike Myatt talks about the 5 habits (he calls them Transitions), here is how I connect storytelling:


  1. Find Purpose -- common purpose, shared values, and vision are found and conveyed through stories. Ignore stories and you won't get very far.
  2. People First -- using appreciative guidelines for listening for and evoking stories, and then appreciating what was heard has tremendous power and brings servant leadership forward.
  3. Develop Awareness -- if you are listening deeply to your own stories and to the stories of others, both personal awareness and awareness about others increases signficiantly. Stories are your best Gurus and learning vehicles about yourself and others.
  4. Shun Complexity -- stories can make complex topics simple. Master the art of storytelling to better deal with complexity.
  5. Get Personal -- stories build empathy, kindness and compassion if approached right and handled well.


Make sense? I hope so :)


What are your thoughts about storytelling and leadership that came to you as you read this article?

Now here is a study showing how influence and motivation skills are necessary for both managers and leaders. This is unique because instead of just focusing on leader skills, this study surveyed senior executives, middle-managers, and lower level managers.


You'd think that the skills would differ as you go up the org food chain. Not so! As you can see from the chart, motivation, influence, communication skills and authenticity are critical at all levels.


How does this connect with storytelling? Because the way to realize "inspiring and motivating others", "display high integrity and honesty", "communicates powerfully and prolifically", "builds relationships", and the like is being able to listen for and share compelling stories that move people to action.


There are several more key insights this article shares. 332,860 bosses, peers, and subordinates participated in this study by Zenger/Folkman. Wow! Anyone in charge of people needs to get their storytelling game on in order to survive and thrive in today's business climate. This applies to nonprofits, entrepreneurs, and solopreneurs also. 


For the solopreneurs, it's taking these skills and applying it to marketing and sales to grow you business. For nonprofits it's taking these skills to build donations, staff and volunteer commitment, and building communities.


Bottom line: keep building those story skills to reach your dreams.
