Share stories...that's what people want to hear. 

Jim Signorelli,Story-Lab's curator insight, October 25, 2013 7:54 AM

Annette Simmons,  one of the "Storyati," has a new weekly podcast. 

In this, her second podcast, and while interviewing my delightful story friend Karen Dietz,  they talk about their connection to story, what it means to them and how they help others make the most of its power. Karen,  who claims she's more of a story scholar than a storyteller, does a pretty good job of telling her own story about some funny things that happened on the way to her doctorate.    Highly recommend a listen and subscribing to these podcasts.

The best stories are those worth sharing.  Even better stories are those that a leader helps his/her people to create together.

What a great support to deepen writing practice for students as they learn to identify different roles, ideas and structures in their reading and use it in their writing

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 26, 2013 12:10 PM

Doug Lipman of www.storydynamics.com  is one of my storytelling coaches. He's brilliant and my go-to guy for clarity around story issues. Like plot.


Do you know how much disagreement and confusion exists around plot? A whole bunch! When Lori Silverman and I were writing Business Storytelling for Dummies we had to deal with plot and Doug's input was critical. Because of my conversations with him about plot during that time, Chapter6 (Crafting a Story) was better, and he decided to write a blog post to expand on the topic for everyone. Yeah!


So here it is. Doug goes into the 3 levels of plot and how they impact better storytelling. This takes much of the mystery out of how to craft better stories. This information should allow you to create dynamic and interesting business stories -- even if they are very short.


Thanks Doug for sharing these insights with us! Happy storytelling everyone.
