Transform an anecdote into a story that will inspire your audience and lend you gravitas.
Human beings are literally wired for story—some biologists even theorize that stories are what sets us apart from all other creatures on Earth. Our brains process information in narrative form, and it is through story that we connect with each other and create community. Stories help us remember things because they control the flow of information and, if crafted well, they engage our emotions, which affects our decision-making.
Storytelling is one of the most important skills a leader can develop to inspire others. Your leaders’ ability to tell a compelling story could be the key to inspiring your organization.
