      Not the end, but definitely a reexamining of what storytelling is. “Oral” traditions will always be around, but the form of it has changed over the years. From oral to writing/runes/glyphs, to books, now to all the electronic medium. Yet, we still talk, and it’s still one of the more effective ways of reaching out and connecting. I hope we really don’t turn completely into the Fahrenheit 451 & Asamov scenario where the only time we really connect is through video and texting.

    Me I hate communicating via anything but face to face, but that could be my job kicking in. I have just bought my first e book fo kindle, just cant get my head round not holding a book in my hands. The world is becoming smaller thanks to these mediums and has done some good in the world. In the future who knows? we were actually saying at work today, in the future maybe community nursing will all be via web cams etc!

    There are a lot of people/professions that will not leave their comfort zone..and it’s a shame .. because in story telling it’s true you can motivate where there was no movement..and can also intrigue others to move or to motivate others..story telling in any venue is a very important and useful tool..As always..XOXOXO

    Stuart I really love this. Storytelling is so important in a business, because it give the emotional culture to all elements of the business. There is a reason that we tell stories: to portray emotion, to connect us, and to allow us to see where we fit into the story. If a business person can weave the right story for his employees, it will equate to better buy-in of the mission and values of the company. Great post! Thank you!
