Business Story-Telling – Communication Skills Training from MindTools.com

February 28, 2013

Be authentic – The best storytellers talk from their hearts, so don’t try to fake an emotion that you don’t feel. Your listeners will probably see through this, and your story will crash and burn. Pay attention to your audience – Stories that are too long are generally boring. Tell the story well, but don’t go on forever. Practice – Try to practice before you tell the story. Even if you tell it to yourself just once in front of a mirror or video camera, this can help you when you’re in front of your real audience. Create an experience – Remember that when you tell a story, you’re creating an experience for your listeners. Don’t just use sound (words), but the other senses as well. Show your listeners the picture you’re painting, don’t just tell them. http://www.onlywire.com/r/119040564
