This workbook is an interactive guide for leaders and managers to help you tell compelling stories at work. The Organizational Storytelling Workbook offers: a critical engagement with academic debates on organizational storytelling; and a series of exercises designed to allow users to improve their capability as organizational storytellers. The text begins with a chapter which locates organizational storytelling within a critical account of organizational cultures. This book argues that managerial accounts of organizational culture offer a limited appreciation of the ways in which people think, feel and act and suggests storytelling as a means of redeeming our understanding of all matters cultural. Having secured this new appreciation of culture and storytelling the workbook develops a series of maxims and exercises designed to allow users: (a) to improve their storytelling practice; and (b) to reassess the cultural assumptions and priorities revealed through their practice. Enriched with interactive features to walk managers practically through the process of improving their storytelling skills, including practical exercises, contemplative questions, and space to respond creatively to the ideas in the book, this workbook is the perfect companion to any executive or postgraduate course in storytelling as well as a useful and enjoyable companion to any individual manager that wishes to improve their skills.

Storytelling has proliferated today, from TED Talks and Humans of New York to a plethora of story-coaching agencies and consultants. These narratives are typically heartbreaking accounts of poverty, mistreatment, and struggle that often move us deeply. But what do they move us to? And what are the stakes in the crafting and use of storytelling? In Curated Stories, Sujatha Fernandes considers the rise of storytelling alongside the broader shift to neoliberal, free-market economies to argue that stories have been reconfigured to promote entrepreneurial self-making and restructured as easily digestible soundbites mobilized toward utilitarian ends. Fernandes roams the globe and returns with stories from the Afghan Women's Writing Project, the domestic workers movement and the undocumented student Dreamer movement in the United States, and the Misi�n Cultura project in Venezuela to show how the conditions under which the stories are told, the tropes through which they are narrated, and the ways in which they are responded to may actually disguise the deeper contexts of global inequality. Curated stories shift the focus away from structural problems and defuse the confrontational politics of social movements. Not just a critical examination of contemporary use of narrative and its wider impact on our collective understanding of pressing social issues, Curated Stories also explores how storytelling might be reclaimed to allow for the complexity of experience to be expressed in pursuit of transformative social change.

PLEASE EMAIL: [email protected] for more info.The art of storytelling began long before mankind developed writing tools. It is believed that soon after the skill of language evolved people started telling stories to educate, to entertain and as a means to express their feelings, beliefs and heroism. Our ancestors probably gathered around the evening fires to be captivated, enchanted and enlightened by the ancient storytellers. Families and communities were strengthened and maintained through stories that connected their present, past and future. The long tradition of storytelling is evident in the earliest cultures, such as the Australian Aborigines. Telling stories was also a nurturing act for both the listener and the teller. Those who excelled at storytelling became our entertainers, cultural advisors, educators and historians. The importance of the storyteller in human history cannot be overstated. Storytelling was, and remains, one of the most respected skills a person can master. The first evidence of storytelling can be found in cave paintings, which recorded both history and mythology in their storylines. Over time, such respect was given to the storytellers that they became honoured members of Royal Courts, Sages and Scribes. Storytelling can preserve a culture, instil moral values and it can be therapeutic. The art and skill of storytelling has come a long way over human history but three things remain constant and crucial: The plot The characters & The narrativeIn this first ever step-by-step guide to teach your child the art of storytelling perhaps we may just be nurturing the next Steven Spielberg, Richard Branson or Plato!
