"Only experience can make wisdom a visceral part of our lives by bridging the distance from head to heart. That's why a storyteller is magic but a teller of facts is not. There is a reason why parables are the oldest form of teaching: They work." Gloria Steinem (Revolution From Within)
To prepare for our workshop
Think about a time or event in your life when you felt . . .
Remember it as mentally and viscerally as you can.
Now think about how you want to tell the story—out loud to a table-full of allies.
As you prepare, notice what happens to your breath and posture and even to your voice as you remember the time or event, the people and the surroundings
In our workshop, I'll ask each person to tell their story. As a group, we'll listen carefully to each one, offering feedback and maybe one way to connect even better with your "audience". Three goals:
1. Each person will experience the energy of telling and listening to some great stories 2. Each person will get one Big Takeaway 3. We'll discuss how you might use this exercise as a bridge to better communication of your very cool professional work
