AUTHENTIC AND TRUE
As someone who as been a coach, educator and leader for a long time, storytelling has proven to be an effective way of explaining information. A good story can elicit meaning and understanding. It can provide a spark of inspiration for someone and also show empathy and encouragement.
A well crafted story can add a personal touch to any speech or presentation and can engage an audience.
Each one of us have many life stories that are worth sharing. I call them “spark stories” Those moments in your life whether dramatic, funny, poignant or frustrating that spark emotion and thought. Those are the stories that are meant to be shared, giving testimony to a life well lived for better or worse.
