Corporate storytellers are best left on the shelf

Storytelling, like any management tool, is dangerous in the wrong hands - and open ended narratives may be healthier

Corporate narratives offer some powerful benefits in an increasingly competitive global economy. They help to provide compelling differentiation and leverage by pulling people to us and building long-term relationships, but they also catalyze distributed innovation as the people we attract begin to venture out in pursuit of the opportunity we have framed. They also have a central role in motivating the employees within the company. Even though narratives do not explicitly speak to them, they help the employees to understand how they can have an impact on people outside the company far beyond selling them more products and services. Those who master the art of compelling narratives will have a much stronger competitive advantage than those who ignore this opportunity.

As the Big Shift drives us into a world of scalable learning, opportunity based narratives can help us mobilize a much broader group of participants on a set of questions and opportunities so that we can all learn faster by working together. This kind of narrative is rarely used in business today. Those who master this form of narrative have the potential to create significant advantage by accelerating learning while at the same time differentiating themselves from companies still mired in self-important “Grand Narratives.”

I believe they’re deeply related and that, together, they amplify performance improvement in powerful ways.
