STORIES Stories about how things are.
STORIES Stories about how things should be. Stories give meaning. Meaningfulness is why people perform. I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth.

STORIES Stories about how things should be. Stories inspire people. New words change culture. Narratives are sticky. Narratives are experiential. — See Made to Stick, Chip & Dane Heath
STORIES So here’s my story for you…
PEOPLE AREN’T DATA While it's possible to have more data and information on people than ever before, it's also easier and easier to treat them like a number and never really connect in a human way.
MAKE BUSINESSES HUMAN With the right stories, changes, organization, and focus on impact we can create great human experiences that serve people and transform them and us.
Systems that serve people.
Experiences that matter. by Hikaru Imamura
Will your story, change, and organization have the empathy and humanness in it to serve people through journeys to transform you and them? We need it. So I hope you do.
CREDITS Classroom photo, slides 1 & 2, from sandcastlematt’s ﬂickr photostream. The image is of Harvard, where I did NOT go to school. http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/sandcastlematt/2455896870/ Thoughts on stories from Chip & Dan Heath’s Made to Stick, including the example of the JFK moon speech. Numerous verbal references throughout to Peter Drucker, who said, “There is only one valid deﬁnition of business purpose: to create a customer,” and “[the businesse’s] purpose must lie outside of the business itself. Business enterprise is an organ of society.”
