"The spaces in a digital classroom can be personalized or anonymous, static or fixed, open or closed, responsive or mute. The main theme is potential, though that potential can be unrealized if there is a lack of alignment between learning objectives and the technology used to achieve them."

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 1, 7:25 PM

Whenever someone talks to me about the future of storytelling, I'm always expecting innovations in crafting or telling business stories.

 

I'm usually disappointed, because what they are really talking about are innovations in tools, applications, processes, or access. The same is true for this post -- and maybe this conference.

 

Basic storytelling skills that haven't changed in millennia are discussed here. The innovation that is good to know about is a tool from Microsoft -- Power BI. This is a data visualization tool that will help certain business storytellers.

 

But let's be clear -- data visualization is not data storytelling. A tool like Power BI can help you find the story. It still requires solid storytelling crafting skills to make it mean something, and to build influence.

 

So enjoy learning about the tool. Follow the advice for story crafting that's included -- just don't think it's anything new :)

Leadership From The Inside Out: The Essential Role Of Story Mastery

Leadership From The Inside Out: The Essential Role Of Story Mastery | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
Leadership is so much more than a hierarchical role. It is how we courageously and authentically show up to serve all those we touch. Real leadership involves inspiring people at all levels to serve something much bigger than themselves.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 28, 7:40 PM

This post by Kevin Cashman at Korn Ferry discusses the 8 pathways to leadership mastery. He makes the point early on that we personally tend to measure leadership mastery by external items: revenue, profit, new product breakthroughs, cost savings, and market share, etc. All good.

 

But the core question is: where do the external results come from? From internal factors within the leader that must be mastered.

 

To answer that question, research ensued and 3 internal competencies emerged:

  1. Courage and authenticity (to include vulnerability, openness, integrity)
  2. Influence (communicating in ways that inspires others)
  3. Enduring value creation serving multiple groups (self, team, org, family, society, world)

 

Building these 3 competencies means walking 8 paths. Four of these paths involve storytelling skills: 

  1. Personal mastery: courage, authenticity, awareness -- being courageous and vulnerable to share your authentic stories; using your own stories for personal awareness and development
  2. Story mastery: leading with inspiration -- by sharing your stories, and sharing the stories of others
  3. Purpose mastery: leading with why -- the best way to share the "why" is through a story. Sharing stories of others fulfilling org/personal purpose and their "why"
  4. Being mastery: leading with presence -- storytelling isn't the only element to building presence, but it is a key one. Modeling who you are through the stories you tell and the actions you take is powerful.

 

Read the post for the other 4 paths (all great info and insights!) and start putting a plan together for 2018. You'll be glad you did.

Globalization, Trade, and Poverty

What is globalization? Is globalization a good thing or not. Well, I have an answer that may not surprise you: It's complicated. This week, Jacob and Adriene will argue that globalization is, in aggregate, good. Free trade and globalization tend to provide an overall benefit, and raises average incomes across the globe. The downside is that it isn't good for every individual in the system. In some countries, manufacturing jobs move to places where labor costs are lower. And some countries that receive the influx of jobs aren't prepared to deal with it, from a regulatory standpoint.

There are many of the 35 videos in the Economics crash course set that touch on geographic issues, but I’d like to highlight episodes 16 and 17 especially.  Many see globalization as the path to economic growth and others see the process of globalization as what has created poverty.  In many ways both have a point as demonstrated in the 16th episode of this crash course.  In a follow-up video, they explain the difference between wealthy inequality and income inequality.  This video also has a nice layman's explanation of the GINI coefficient and how it measures inequality.
