TELL A STORY

Standard

You Want to Tell a Story
When leaders tell stories in order to influence others delivery is essential. The first aspect of delivery is repertoireComposition ie putting the story together and performance are also important ( if its face to face). To build a repertoire, narrative leaders should answer the following questions:
*Should I tell a story? Stories can be very helpful at times when attempts to persuade or inform fall short.
*When should I tell a story? Stories are helpful for leaders in honoring achievements, focusing on purposes, encouraging good practices, and anticipating changes, among others.
*What kinds of stories work best? In order to work well, stories must fit the needs of the situations, the audiences, and the tellers.
*Where do I find stories to tell? There are various places to find stories:
1-Handed down by organizations.
2-Personal experiences.
3-Other people’s experiences.
4-Fictional stories.
5-Borrowing well-known stories.
A Good Story Well Told
When it comes to structuring stories for maximum impact, it is important for storytellers to add enough detail to spark the listeners’ imaginations so that they can feel the experience. There are several elements to good stories, which can be remembered with the mnemonic, CASTLE:
*Characters: Listeners must know details about the characters in order to care about what happens to them.
*Action: A list of the events, told in order, is key to confidence in storytelling.
*Structure: Each story needs a beginning that sets up the situation, a middle that provides the majority of the events, and an end that provides a satisfying conclusion.
*Texture: Details on sights, sounds, smells, etc. help make stories more real for listeners.
*Language: Direct speech helps illustrate stories. It is better to repeat exactly what was said than to simply report about what was said.
*Emotions: Stories become real for listeners when the stories inspire them to go on emotional journeys.
