Most people think that when trying to influence others to back a project, it's all about the crafting of the presentation and messages.

 

Well, yes.....AND if you miss this critical step before hand, all will go down the tubes, as this article explains.

 

What's that must-do step to take first? It's the first rule of storytelling -- know your audience! In particular -- get to know your most influential critics before hand. Listen, learn about them, and empathize.

 

The author of the post gives us 9 audience strategies. Some happen before the presentation. A few happen during the presentation.

 

Remember, you can't tell an effective story if you can't link your story to the challenges/desires in the hearts of your listeners.

The Rising Need For Soft Skills & The Challenge of Scaling Them 

The Rising Need For Soft Skills & The Challenge of Scaling Them  | Ten skills that employers want | Scoop.it
Empathy and creative thinking are valuable skills in the workplace, but they’re hard to teach.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 28, 5:36 PM

Here's a fascinating article by the MIT Sloan Management Review discussing how soft skills are growing to become critically important. Then the author talks about the 3 barriers to building soft skills. I know you'll enjoy reading it.

 

The author does offer 3 ideas for dealing with those 3 barriers. What she misses is storytelling being a method that easily builds soft skills and is scalable. 

 

Research has documented over the years how storytelling is one of the best methods for building emotional intelligence, empathy, context setting, collaboration, and creative thinking -- all essential soft skills. Building storytelling skills can happen 1:many, 1:few, and 1:1. Even better, storytelling can be low tech or high tech, depending on the situation.

 

So get it done.

Simple, Effective Leadership Skills That Few People Live--And What Storytelling Has To Do With It 

Simple, Effective Leadership Skills That Few People Live--And What Storytelling Has To Do With It  | Ten skills that employers want | Scoop.it
Jack Christianson explains that leadership is all about people. When the leader gets relationships right, everything else falls into place.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 20, 8:16 PM

Many leaders nod and do lip service to this essential truth: leadership is about relationships. "Yes!" they say. But many find it difficult to do or sustain over time because the focus is mostly on issues.

 

This article is about a new book on the topic, and how to overcome the obstacles to building deep relationships that make business work. It's also written as a parable.

 

When communication and trust are low, say the authors, performance and confidence are also low. That means the business is low, too. 

 

What does this have to do with storytelling? Sharing authentic, well-crafted stories builds trust, relationships, and leadership. Stories communicate and demonstrate lived values. They connect and reinforce. They are the web of your culture. 

 

Want trust? Want great leadership? Want deep relationships that accelerate performance and business growth? Want a strong culture? Do you take the time? Leverage business storytelling.
