“We spend most of our time in organisations talking and thinking about the visible and discernible things – facts, actions, processes, even though it is the invisible values, attitudes and narratives that are actually driving most of what is going on” Steve Denning
Once we become aware of the ‘invisible’ elements – values, attitudes and narratives – we can harness them to drive results. One way is through understanding the value of actively creating and communicating the narrative of the team or organisation. There will always be a narrative – it’s up to us to be the Author of the stories that define our business.
At Instant Teamwork stories are our passion. We have studied, performed and facilitated stories and storytelling all our lives. Talk to us about your stories and who you want to tell them to.
We can all achieve powerful engagement of others through storytelling. The strength of the impact derives from: a clear message; a powerful story, making the message real and living for the audience; confident delivery congruent with the message and story and tailored to the audience.
