Whenever stories are being told, it is the listener who holds the power in shaping the meaning making experience. I think it is a big idea that is often overlooked in all of the current buzz around storytelling. I was really pleased with this 30-minute webinar that I delivered for the Grandview Group, and you are welcome to listen in for free below. Let me know what you think!
This was my second interview with the Story Powered radio show, and it was as wonderful an experience as the first. In this show, I'm interviewed by one of my favorite story practitioners, Karen Dietz. (Her "Just Story It" curation site on Scoop.it is one of the essential business story resources, and if you're not following it I urge you to do so.)
In this radio show, we talk about a subject that not too many people have asked me about from my book: fractal narratives. This is a concept that I developed based on my work in the world of organizational complexity theory, and I think it is an intuitive idea that stories are embedded within larger stories... and there is tremendous power for an organization when there is narrative similarity at those different levels of scale.

I loved being part of this podcast with Dr. Sally Fox, of Engaging Presence. We discussed storytelling as a meaning making construct -- one of my very favorite topics.
