adapting to change using stories of possibilities
change is often the process of seeing the same thing in different forms
what we do
what are the stories of what we do?
are they interesting?
do they grab us and our audience?
do they stick in peoples minds?
how do we see ourselves?
why do we exist?
how do we behave?
what do we believe?
Warren Harding turned the impossible into the possible.
He refused to be rescued, spending 28 continuous days and 27 nights of stress
climbing the 822m "Wall of the Early Morning Light", the tallest portion of El Capitan in California.
stories are data with a soul
stories attract people
use attractors to spread stories
less is more - keep it simple
mind over matter - invest in curiosity, learning and imagination
do it with passion - because you want to rather than have to
choose the direction of your journey - take time to think about it
possibility - break patterns, think outside the box, exercise the muscle of imagination
care - for who you are doing it with as well as what you are doing. Build positive relationships in everything and with everyone.
being or doing - leave pretence behind and embrace authenticity.

change and adaptation
change creates uncertain times but also opportunity
doing something differently allows new stuff to emerge
doing something simple allows it to happen easily
companies or groups exist in different forms with different stories
the story of what we do
the story of how we are together
the story of how we see ourselves
the story of how others see us
how are we together?
how do we lead ourselves?
how do others see us?
what kind of man is this? how do you see him?
his name is Warren Harding
a wild man or an explorer?
stories are easily remembered
stories engage the emotional part of our brain we need
to share the emotion of others to feel that we belong
a story begins with ‘what is’ and shows ‘what could be’
we use stories as our ‘flight simulator’ to understand living
stories awaken curiosity
that help a journey into the unknown ... into the future
find stories that illustrate ...
stimulate curiosity learning and imagination
helping people to exercise their creativity
choose the direction of your journey
take time to think about it
care for others
not just what you are doing but who you are doing it with
build positive relationships in everything and with everyone.
