The 12 Business Books to Read in 2014 | Adam Grant One of the highlights of becoming an author is getting to read some exciting books in advance, and hearing early buzz about others.

How to spot a story - a simple story framework: Infographic Posted by Shawn Callahan - September 26, 2014Filed in Business storytelling With so much talk about business storytelling you’d think business people were telling more stories. Sadly we see lots of people talking about stories but very few telling them. And quite frankly, you just don’t get the benefits of storytelling unless you are telling a story. Part of the problem is that business people lack a simple story framework to help them spot stories so they can tell the difference between a story and just a tag line, or an assertion, a viewpoint or just an out of context, unemotional, barely understandable dot point. So here’s an infographic you can pin to your wall or save to your smart phone that gives you some simple guideposts to help you spot stories. And once armed with this knowledge you’ll no longer be lulled into accepting any old brand story, product story, strategic story or even a strategic narrative (which of course is a type of story) unless it’s really a story.

Femmes du numérique | Commission Syntec Numérique Spanish Storytelling for Leaders now available Posted by Shawn Callahan - September 23, 2014Filed in Business storytelling, News Early this year we appointed two business partners in Mexico, one in Mexico City (Jesus Trejo) and the other in Monterrey (Astrolab). Of course this meant translating our Storytelling for Leaders materials into Spanish. We engaged a professional translator in Mexico City who did a wonderful job understanding the nuances of our work and making the most appropriate translation. Our business partners are very pleased with the result. First Spanish Storytelling for Leaders Project Our first major project using the newly translated materials was with one of Mexico’s most prestigious department stores.

'Your Logo Looks Like a Toilet' When the University of California introduced a new logo last year to unify its 10 distinct campuses, the effort was met first with public disinterest, then ire, then outright revolt. The modern, corporate logo was never meant to replace the venerable UC crest on diplomas or most other external documents. Yet, some 54,000 students and alumni signed a petition to "Stop the new UC logo" within months. Haters took to Facebook and Twitter to mock the design. They debated whether the logo looked more like a toilet, a Swedish roll cake, or a nuclear bomb. So, what can we learn from the UC's visual branding stumble? 1. 2. 3.

La raison d'être de mon blog - Nos PME ont du Talent « Nos PME ont du talent » a vu le jour le jeudi 5 janvier 2012. Un an plus tôt, jour pour jour, je publiais Ma petite entreprise a connu la crise (François Bourin Editeur), témoignage brut et authentique des conséquences de la crise financière et économique mondiale sur la vie d’une PME française, Solic ( Depuis la publication de mon ouvrage, dont une toute nouvelle édition enrichie est à paraître le 23 février 2012, j’ai recueilli d’innombrables témoignages de chefs d’entreprise, qui tous partagent la passion d’entreprendre, mais qui tous aussi en connaissent les aléas, les difficultés, les contraintes. A la faveur de forums professionnels, de table-rondes, d’interventions dans des établissements d’enseignement supérieur, je fais entendre la voix de ces entrepreneurs, qui sont aujourd’hui, et de loin, la première source de richesse du pays. « Nos PME ont du talent » est le fruit de ces rencontres, qui se trouvent ici prolongées et approfondies.
