As human beings, we are wired for story. Through stories we connect with each other, expand our possibilities, make sense of our world, and even heal old wounds. In our socially web-connected world, savvy businesses are beginning to appreciate the power of story to build strong bonds both with more productive in-house teams and with valued clients. No one can sell your story better than a satisfied customer. Nothing satisfies me more than helping entrepreneurs and businesses discover their unique stories and devise a delivery that engages and enchants their client evangelists.
This is the introduction I used for my newest iteration for my résumé. The job description stressed communication abilities. It also hinted that there were relational repairs to be made both internally and externally, hence my reference to storytelling as a solution powerful enough to “connect with each other, expand our possibilities, make sense of our world, and even heal old wounds.”
I’m inching closer to my blogging purpose….
