Shawn Callahan, Lessons Learned When Stories are Told. Anecdote, June 2015.

We experience a lot in the workplace, but our experiences are mostly forgotten – except for the ones that we turn into stories. Stories give experiences a fighting chance to be remembered, translating them into narratives which contain the lessons. But here’s the thing, it’s only at this very moment the story is told that the lesson is learned. Without the story, at best it remains a vague feeling. As you can see the leader’s role is vital. They can help create the conditions for such lessons to emerge, and once they have, they can become stories that can be retold and remembered.

Shawn Callahan, How to remember a story so you can retell it. Anecdote, 2014.

Whenever I hear a story that’s remarkable, one that I think I would like to retell, I call up someone, usually my business partner Mark, and tell them the story.
