4 Essential Stories that Every Business Needs to Tell
Storytelling is essential in business, no matter your role, no matter your industry. Whether you’re in operations or sales, at the top of the hierarchy or the very bottom working your way up, storytelling will make you more compelling, engaging, or persuasive. Stories make the data matter, your marketing efforts worth it, and make you better. But you have to be telling them a strategic way. “Stories are the ultimate influencer,” says storytelling advisor, coach, nationally-known speaker and author, Kindra Hall, MA. “All you need to do is tap into this power and learn the strategic skill of storytelling. Then, you, your team and your company will become irresistible.”
