Powerful Communication

Dan Pink continuously talks about the power of story. The Heath brothers articulate that “sticky” messages have certain attributes. In Tribes, Seth Godin emphasizes the critical, fundamental importance of communication.

For the last 18 months, one of my tracks of personal learning has been focused in the area of communication, presentation, and idea story telling. Dan Pink, Dan and Chip Heath, Edward Tufte, Garr Reynolds and Nancy Duarte have been a few of my virtual teachers.

Recently, Nancy Duarte delivered a TEDxEast talk (below) and several blog posts about presentation and communication.

Our 7th graders are currently studying the god-teacher archetype. Do you see the connections? Here’s to the kaizen of our presentations and communications.

One thought on “Powerful Communication

  1. Communication, presentation and storytelling are three important learnings for leaders. They come up over again in the work of John Maxwell on leadership. Can you tell us more about what the god-teacher archetype is? I am not familiar with it. Thanks for the post and have the video on my schedule for the day.
