Change Storytelling:  Agreement or Alignment?

I nod my head and I say to you, “I agree with you” and I genuinely do.
You now believe that I am onboard and I will drive the desired outcome along with you.

But agreement is not alignment.

And because I am only in agreement, I will struggle to find the same passion and energy required to drive the desired outcome as you.
So, how about we move beyond agreement which is built on logic and move towards alignment which is built on stories.

Once I am aligned, I will find the fuel to change. Rarely can an agreement drive change, what drives change is an alignment.

Why the QR Code? The answer is in the request below we received from a regular blog reader.

"I attended your story telling course some time back. And I've enjoyed keeping up my knowledge with your blog. You may not have realised however, that the Whole of Government is implementing Internet Seperation. Hence I'm not able to access the links to read your articles. Could I suggest including a QR code in your emails so that I can use my mobile to scan it and gain immediate access to the article? It would be most helpful"
