Compelling Stories

Posted on September 18, 2007. Filed under: stories |

In the SirsiDynix Webinar today, “Dump the Org Chart-Get ‘R done”, I talked about telling compelling stories.  If you are interested in an good perspective on the subject, I would recommend reading,  “The Springboard: How Storytelling Ignites Action in Knowledge-Era Organizations” by Stephen Denning.  He address this whole issue and give some good examples of stories that made a difference and how to determine if your story is a good one.  This is not something that I feel I’m great at, but with practice am slowly becoming better.

Great presentation! Storytelling is an administrator’s most powerful tool. It convinces, it does inspire, and it evangelizes. Your presentation is definitely being picked up and talked about. Thank you for sharing it.
