Tyrion Lannister on Storytelling

Tyrion Lannister on Storytelling – lessons from series

Valar Morghulis.

Series and movies are making a big impact on us. Whether there are the college days of student life or the time when you are a professional, there are some series which make us watch them the whole night. Game of Thrones is one of them.

The series though is giving big life lessons in management and professional life as well. Unquestionably, one of the most powerful characters of the series is Tyrian Lannister. “A very small man can cast a very large shadow” – well, can’t he?!

In the season finale, he is telling about the power of a story. When the time comes for declaring the king, he starts from the question – “What unites people? Armies? Gold? Flags? No. It’s stories”. He is addressing all those people who have been a part of ruling and politics. The people who have been fighting under some flag telling some words. People who are thinking about powerful armies and wealth to run the kingdom. Ask the same thing to yourself about your organization. The mindset will be the same. But what is the element which is making everyone working with motivation? What inspires all the employees or stakeholders?

There’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story. Nothing can stop it. No enemy can defeat it.

Well isn’t it true? The art of storytelling is making a massive impact on anyone’s heart. In your organization, if you are not having a good story as the heart and soul of the company then you can not achieve the excellence to move the mountains. All the leaders are having such goals and desire to create some miracle and be the best in the competition. But for that, it is most important to unite people and make them think on the same level as yours.

If you want to be remembered as a legend, create a soulful story of your organization first.
