Welcome to the Speexx Exchange podcast on Storytelling, social leadership, change and learning! Your host, Donald Taylor, Chairman of the Learning and Performance Institute – and renowned L&D expert chats with writer, researcher, and founder of Sea Salt Learning’s, Julian Stodd, about social leadership, social learning, and the importance of storytelling. Julian describes older, more outdated models of learning and contrasts them with the newer concept of “social learning” – when regular people, each with their own understandings of the world, make sense of things together. After all, learning is ultimately part of – or a response to – storytelling! The pair also discuss how senior managers, in particular, need not focus so much on storytelling, but instead, zero in on story listening skills; this allows management to better enable employees to speak up and share stories of their own. Listen in to also learn about three different types of narrative, and why they’re practical tools for instructional design.
