Explore, Share, and Write Your Life,
Business, or Organization Stories?
Or have them professionally written?
know we all learn from experience. We tend to
feel more connected to people with whom we share
experience. So why don't workplaces and organizations
with a vested interest in both mutual learning and
teamwork do more to share, preserve, and use that
experience? Stories are a great way to do that.
Workplaces and organizations of all kinds benefit
from exploring, sharing, preserving, and using real
life experience. Experiential stories can enhance
learning, performance, quality, image, cohesiveness,
understanding, and relationships. Stories are powerful
tools you may use to market goods, services, and
ideas; motivate behavioral change; foster unity
in diversity, build teams, deepen community;
draw out tacit knowledge; improve orientation, training,
and leadership. What resource can better illuminate
reality, connect people, clarify and pass on skills,
values, ethics, and expectations?
Benefits--History reveals patterns that may
guide the future. Each person in any business, church,
school, hospital, shop, or Fortune 100 company has
experiences worth examining, saving and sharing.
Individual and corporate stories may be used to
prevent and solve problems; attract, educate, motivate,
and lead others; and boost management, employee,
customer, client, shareholder, member, and public
relations. Whether you are a founder, founder's
progeny, current steward (e.g., proprietor, CEO,
leader, manager, human resource director), employee,
staff, member, or volunteer, your stories, founders'
stories, organizational history, and true stories
from every participant can serve as distinctive
vehicles with which to share perspectives, embody
ethics and values, and influence attitudes and behaviors,
immediately and in the future. What a valuable resource!
Don't squander experience. Don't waste stories!
Stories--Family business, industrial empire,
fledgling non-profit, or giant institution, any
business or organization is a living thing, with
a rich, revealing, and very human history. Founders,
owners, and leaders who have birthed or shaped the
business or organization embody its roots and
stories need to be told. Respect rises when others
recognize and understand core values, challenges,
progress, and contributions.
histories and personal experiences may raise employee/staff/member/volunteer
understanding, motivation, morale, and shared pride.
People feel more deeply connected to a more humanized
organization with a more humanized leader or boss
and coworkers. Some feel encouraged and empowered
by learning of contributions by fellow employees,
staff, or members. They may enjoy a well-crafted
written history as a gift or use it as a learning
or marketing tool.
Relations Benefits--People who read revealing,
well crafted, business or organization stories tend
to feel more connected to and positive about a more
humanized organization and its representatives.
Stories can powerfully influence existing or potential
customers, shareholders, or contributors. Every
organization benefits, whether profit or nonprofit,
private or public. Consider potential benefits to restaurants, retail, manufacturing, airlines,
publishers, mass media, or dotcoms, or for nonprofit
institutions--libraries, governmental, medical,
educational, or religious organizations (where customers
