Try to bring up your best memories from the time when you were a kid. When I was a kid I really loved to listen all kinds of stories.
Most of us gained our first knowledge about the world through the stories our parents and grandparents were telling us.
Both of my grandmothers were great storytellers. I sincerely hope that I have inherited at least a bit of their talent.
Storytelling is activity of sharing stories. Some people are very talented with this one. Don’t worry if you think that you are not one of them. This skill can be easily learned and developed.
If you wish to make your story interesting you can do some improvisation of the story you heard elsewhere. If you are sharing your story verbally you can add some theatrics movements, some embellishment or humor to make it more interesting for your audience.
Every culture in the world has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or instilling moral values.
Storytelling is actually communicating by using words. Stories can be expressed verbally or in written form.
The best way to make connections with the environment is the good old storytelling. You can use it everywhere, especially at work place to connect with colleagues.
The storytelling at work environment should always focus on the human side of work. If you are a leader, it is better to give your message and your guidance through the stories, than simply list the facts. Good stories are engaging, and if you add a bit of humor in them everybody is going to love them.
So don’t hesitate to make and share your own stories. Look at me as a good example, by sharing my stories with others, I earned so many connections and followers all over the world.
