Telling Stories

Here is a great piece on the value of telling stories. The punch line:
There is a much more powerful source of influence available to
anyone with experience as a human being — telling an authentically persuasive story.

There are six types of stories that will serve you well in your efforts to influence others.
  1. Who I Am Stories
  2. Why I Am Here Stories
  3. My Vision Story
  4. Teaching Stories
  5. Values in Action Stories
  6. "I Know what you are Thinking" Stories
Those you wish to influence begin with two major questions: Who are you? and Why are you here? Until these questions are answered they don’t trust what you say.
Thx to Jay Pelt for the reference.
