OK, this is a deep post -- but well worth it if you are into storytelling creating successful change. As a leader, share it with your organizational development folks, but also understand it yourself so you can be more effective.

 

In fact, you'll probably want to bookmark this entire site. There are tools to explore and more insights to read on the link between storytelling and change.

 

One of the reasons I like this post is because it also talks about language. The language we use in our stories is important. Using generative language is a must. Generative language creates forward movement. Get more insights on this by reading the post.

 

I also like the notion shared here of mapping stories collaboratively in your network. It's an incredibly valuable tool because then you know because the stories act as bridges to other groups, divisions, and worlds where you need to go and have impact.

 

The site also shares a simple network mapping tool. Yay!

 

My only quibble is that the article focuses on stories as sense-making tools when instead they are meaning-making vehicles. Sense making is "Oh I get it." Meaning making is, "Oh, now I know how this is valuable, or now I know what to do." That's a huge difference, and meaning making is a way more desirable outcome.

 

Dig in here for accelerating your leadership and change skills.
