Storytelling, Jo Tyler - 12:30pm to 2:30pm
Stories and narratives are the fabric of organizations, and organizations generate stories and narratives. In this session we'll consider the distinctions between stories and narratives and their dynamic interplay in organizational settings. We'll dig into the energetic vitality of stories and we'll explore the relationship and responsibility we have to them as both tellers and listeners, and look at how issues of power and authenticity can shape the effect of stories in your organization. For a sneak peak at a sliver of Jo's thoughts on storytelling and story listening, watch her TEDx PSU talk here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cSngtvtfHs
