"At the very basic level, we see that businesses don’t have a concrete business story to tell," says Shlomi Ron in this article on Visual Storytelling. And that's the crux of the matter.
 
Ron goes on to share a lot about how to construct visual stories and the mistakes business make in their visual storytelling. Read my review for more.

**Your presentation is a dialogue and conversation

OMG, what a great article on the power of storytelling for change.

She makes 3 frames for business stories: stories as light, stories as glue, and stories as web. When you frame stories like this, it becomes a lot easier to leverage them for any kind of change effort. Lots of details are included along with examples. This is a powerful post you won't want to miss.

Agreed, agreed, agreed! Did you know that most corporation's values are similar? 90% refer to ethical behavior or use the word "integrity". 88% mention commitment to customers. 76% cite teamwork and trust. No wonder they all sound the same.

None of them identify what is unique or valuable about your company. What would come up with if you banned these words too? Likely something much more interesting!

Read the article for more insights and next steps.

Good golly -- what a comprehensive article about how to effectively influence and persuade! And all the points are right on.
 
I really like the distinction between System 1 and System 2 thinking based on neuroscience. To influence, use System 1, which is storytelling.
 
But wait -- there's more! Your stories are how to get done all the points in this post. Run, don't walk, to read this article. There's tons of good actionable advice here.

I'm interviewing CIO Shola Oyewole later today because of his interesting approaches to IT, developing new products/services that add solid business value, and building trust that has led to phenomenal success. I think you will really enjoy this interview. There's lots to think about, and shifts to make to expand your success.

Grab this. I like how the marketplace is being framed these days as the Human Economy. This is a natural extension of the Experience Economy.

As I read somewhere recently, coaching -- not gadgets -- is the key to improving performance. Read more in my review.
