    One thought on “The Leader's Guide to Storytelling: Mastering the Art and Discipline of Business Narrative”

    1. Some interesting extracts from the book:What is the purpose of stories:- End of preface: Stories generate meaning. They embody our values. They give us the clues from which we can discover what ultimately matters. - Page 10: Stories supplement analytical thinking by enabling us to imagine new perspectives. Storytelling is ideally suited to communicate change and stimulate innovation.- Page 37: Studies show that information is more quickly and accurately remembered when it is first presented in t [...]

    2. Put away the PowerPoint slides: Getting things done in business requires much more than hard facts and PowerPoint presentations -- it requires the ability to persuade, motivate and convince. Denning does a fantastic job demonstrating how to do this through storytelling - making your audience (your boss, teammates, customers) get involved in your idea, allowing them to put themselves into your story. Presentation slides have become a frustrating crutch -- few remember (or even trust) your numbers [...]

    3. It's a good read definitely. I tell stories differently now. Rather than telling people a story of how they should do it, I inspire them to write their own.

    4. I saw this in BN. It obviously continues on my storytelling theme. We'll see what he teaches me that Annette Simmons didn't!

    5. I am not convinced that business is really ready for narrative. I like where Denning is coming from but my experience says it's an uphill battle getting anyone to swallow the pill.

    6. "In this radically different mode of managing, the firm still has structures and processes, but the structures and processes create a space to liberate rather than stifle the talents and energies of those doing the work."Dennig has a vision. I'm very much in alignment with his vision of how businesses could look and work.Storytelling is a key tool for an effective leader. Great read.

    7. Story telling is a great tool to use both in leadership and public speaking. While not a new book, Stephen Denning gives some good templates/phrasing to help you to frame your stories to your cause. Its a quick read, but worthwhile.

    8. IntroductionStorytelling is a powerful means of communication within organizations. This is the premise of the "Leader's Guide to Storytelling".Stephen Denning has crafted this book on the following hypotheses. Organizations tend to favor the quantitative & analytical. While this approach favors the reasoning part of our minds, it is poor at changing our emotions. Storytelling make communication by mixing the analytical and the emotional. Storytelling, in this context, deals with working in [...]

    9. Great leaders tell stories. We learn through stories when we were kids. The small "me" like to hear stories.More interesting is from another book, sounds familiar with agile/devops. 7 principles of continuous innovation ( from book the leaders guide to radical managemnt)1. the goal of work is delight clients 2. work is conducted in self organizing .teams3. team operate in client driven iterations (delight client can be approached only through successive approxinations) 4. Each iteration delivers [...]

    10. Very good -- almost four stars. And I totally agree with the basic concepts (although note that good business narrative flows from [and can support:] good business strategy). It just seems like there should be some more interesting stories told in the text and a broader set of examples from business as well as from the world of professional storytelling.

    11. Similar to what we read in the The Storyboard Approach, but less applied. This is a good read for someone who is not already bought into the fact that stories are how humans have communicated/engaged/compelled for thousands of years.

    12. Mastering the art of narrative is a skill everyone should invest time in learning. For me this book contained a well structured approach to improve your story-telling skills. I apply these techniques throughout the day - both in my job and in my private life.

    13. An excellent resource for purposeful communicators! I'm looking forward to using these concepts in my own presentations and speeches. It's easy to see how great storytelling communicators (elected officials, business leaders, pastors, etc.) rise to the top of our awareness.

    14. As innovative enterprises adopt business wide agile practices - this book describes the required culture and leadership necessary to foster business in the next economies. This book is a fantastic resource.

    15. I couldn't get through it in the amount of time I had with it. For a book on storytelling, it really didn't flow. I was pretty disappointed.

    16. I took many useful advicesis book will definitely change the way I present my ideas and engage people in change process.

    17. Another perspective on story telling in management setup as story lover, real story it was interest g to one how good story telling and performing it can have an impact in an organization

    18. Not a bad book but it never ceases to amaze me why so few story telling books are written in narrative form.why not talk the talk

    19. This book was too academic and text-booky for me. I like them to be more casual in tone rather than academic. I like learning, but just not in that more formal style
