Écrire avec le Mind Mapping en 4 étapes Au moment d’écrire un article, un e-book, de rédiger un mémoire ou même un livre, divers freins et obstacles se dressent devant l’auteur.

Continuons avec la quatrième étape, celle de la rédaction. Franco MASUCCI

Etre un «bon client», ça s'apprend: les coulisses du média-training Temps de lecture: 8 min «Mes conseillers en communication vont encore me dire que je parle trop vite!» Nous sommes le 12 janvier sur le plateau de l'émission Des Paroles et des actes, et les journalistes présents ne relèvent pas cette phrase de Jean-Luc Mélenchon. Le rôle des hommes de l’ombre semble désormais acquis. Comment préparent-ils leurs «clients» à une interview? Une première séance de média-training, comme si vous y étiez. Une petite salle éclairée. Tout est prêt. Ce premier exercice, se présenter succinctement, semble simple… et pourtant: «Dans la plupart des cas, les personnalités qui nous sollicitent échouent à cette épreuve. Une fois l’exercice terminé, l’enregistrement est visionné par le politique sous les regards croisés du journaliste et du communicant. Quelques jours se passent alors avant de reprendre rendez-vous pour préparer un entretien particulier. «Chacun a l'habitude de répondre aux questions» Ils lui apprennent aussi évidemment à éluder certaines questions.

5 Steps to Telling Engaging Stories on Your Blog The best bloggers on the planet do three things very well. I call them the 3 E’s. The first two, educate and engage, are the easiest to master. But the third E, entertain, is the one that will set a blogger apart from the masses. The best way to entertain, to keep your reader glued to your page, is to tell a story. What makes a good story? The famed writer Flannery O’Connor said that a story is ‘a full action with a point.’ I’ve been reading Victoria Mixon’s groundbreaking book, The Art & Craft of Story. That’s powerful stuff. 1. What is the one thing you are trying to say? 2. Your headline and opening paragraph are your hook. You want your reader to think, “What’s going on here? Example of a Headline: Why I’m Dumping the Cat’s Eye Writer Blog If you are a regular reader of the Cat’s Eye blog, this would make you sit up. Example of a Hook: The other day I unfollowed someone on Twitter. What did election season have to do with anything? 3. The character can make or break your post. 4. 5.

If You Want to Succeed in Business, Read More Novels (Photo credit: Mrs Logic) My parents were completely convinced that an undergraduate liberal arts degree was the key to success in life. They argued that whether you went on to be a lawyer, an architect, a business leader, a store owner, or a stay-at-home mom, having a grounding in good literature and a basic understanding of the sweep of human history and culture would provide the best foundation for any future learning – and for being able to interact well with other human beings. Even though I was a music major in college, I read pretty obsessively, mostly fiction and history, from a very early age and – in principle – I agreed with them. Just today I read a wonderful article in the HBR blog by Anne Kreamer, The Business Case for Reading Novels, talking about some fascinating research that supports my parents’ contention. I loved reading this – it wasn’t surprising to me at all. And my parents would be proud of you.

7 reasons visual storytelling is one of 2012's breakout trends You’ve seen infographics on websites, embedded SlideShare presentations, illustrated videos, and more, that give consumers a way to consume data more concisely and in a more memorable way. Visual storytelling is compelling and the art and technology supporting the trend are improving, as are the standards and expectations of consumers. Jason Amunwa at SlideDeck 2 tells AGBeat that “though it’s early in 2012, the importance – and necessity of visual storytelling is already one of the year’s breakout trends.” According to Amunwa, below are the seven reasons that visualization is a breakout trend: A Better Experience for Users is Essential. There are many methods being used to visualize content, like Amunwa’s team at SlideDeck 2. Instead of forcing website managers to create content from scratch or reformat what they’ve already shared via social media, SlideDeck 2 automatically pulls in content to show on WordPress-powered sites.

10 Tips For Your Office Job 1. Talk to the “dick” or “bitch” of the office. They are generally nicer than you think and their reputation is primarily hearsay. Or they are, in fact, that shitty person you should probably avoid. Either way, you should know firsthand. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Barack Obama, seul homme politique au monde à pratiquer le storytelling Storytelling par ci, storytelling par là, à ce qu'on lit, le storytelling s'inviterait partout, omniprésent dans la campagne présidentielle. Il n'y a pourtant, à l'heure actuelle dans le monde, qu'un seul homme politique qui fasse du storytelling, et il n'est pas français. C'est Barack Obama. Barack Obama lors d'un meeting via twitter à la maison blanche le 6 juillet 2011 (M. NGAN/AFP) Pourtant, certaines personnalités politiques françaises semblent s'y adonner également : François Hollande au Bourget : du storytelling ! Ah, on nous a aussi récemment sorti le storytelling de François Bayrou, Dominique de Villepin, et avant cela celui de DSK. Et nous avons notre champion proclamé du storytelling made in France : notre président du storytelling, Nicolas Sarkozy. De petites anecdotes plutôt qu'une grande histoire Le storytelling, en politique, c'est ou ce devrait être une histoire que l'on nous propose de vivre. A se focaliser sur les mini-histoires, on ne peut que se contredire sans cesse.

13 Tips for Not Sweating the Big Interview A job seeker recently asked me what to do if he sweats … profusely! He is very self conscious of his sweaty palms and the actual sweat beads that form on his face. Here are some strategies that will absolutely alleviate these symptoms: Tip #1: The more prepared you are, the less you will sweat. So, practice your interview technique – not just for 1 hour, not just for 5 hours. Conduct at least 10 mock interviews with someone who can throw really tough questions at you and help you to focus on the answers. Tip #2: Have a list of things that must be done 2 days before an interview, 1 day before an interview, and the day of the interview. Tip #3: Try on your interview suit 2 – 3 days before the interview. Tip #4: Have 5 copies of your (error-free) resume in a leather portfolio, just in case the interviewer misplaced before you interview. Tip #5: Have 5 – 7 questions written down in advance, on the writing pad in your portfolio case.
