#TFT14 Simone Jo Moore, A novel way of leading

Published on

Just for a moment, step back and view your environment, the teams you work with and the teams you lead as a novel. Is it one you enjoy reading, find you can't put the book down, struggle to get through the first chapter or jump straight to the end to see how it finishes?

  19. 19. The Snowflake Method Randy Ingermanson
  20. 20. The Snowflake Method 1. Write a one-sentence summary of your team. 2. Expand the sentence to a paragraph describing the story narrative, any major events and the ending. 3. Now consider the main character and write a one page summary for each, considering the following points: • A one-sentence summary of the character’s storyline. • The character’s motivation (what does he/she want abstractly?). • The character’s goal (what does he/she want concretely?). • The character’s conflict (what prevents him/her from reaching this goal?). • The character’s epiphany (what will he/she learn, how will he/she change?). • A one-paragraph summary of the character’s storyline. @simonejomoore #TFT14
  21. 21. The Snowflake Method 4. Go back to the summary you wrote in step 2 and expand each sentence into a paragraph: • Take several hours and expand each sentence of your summary paragraph into a full paragraph. All but the last paragraph should end in a disaster. The final paragraph should tell how the book ends. 5. Write a one page description for each major character, which tells the story from their point of view. 6. Expand your one page plot synopsis into a four page plot synopsis. @simonejomoore #TFT14
  22. 22. The Snowflake Method 7. Expand your character descriptions from Step 3 into full ‘character charts’. 8. Using the expanded synopsis, make a list of every scene you will need to write to complete the novel. 9. Using the scene list, write a multi-paragraph narrative description of each scene. 10. Write your first draft. @simonejomoore #TFT14
  23. 23. Summary • Being able to use a Novel approach to Leadership gives you the ability to: • hope until there is none • know it is not ended until you choose to end it • continue the story • always write the sequel and where necessary, • write the prequel to explain the misunderstood or unknown. @simonejomoore #TFT14
