Making your Strategy Stick: Stories that explain your strategic choices and inspire action
How does story help strategies stick? Employees can only act strategically if they really know the company’s strategy. They need to have it in their heads.
Stories are more memorable than facts alone, so we can get them into our heads. In fact, they’re at least seven times more memorable than facts. And stories can be read twice as fast as non-stories. Amazing really.
People are also more likely to share a story than a set of dot points. Stories spread – without the need for a PowerPoint deck.
One more thing about stories – you can tell the long version or the short version, depending on the setting. They’re flexible.
These are just some of the reasons why a story helps your strategy stick.
