I usually start any session by asking what people want out of it.

I don’t use PowerPoint, because I want to show I am truly open to whatever comes up.

When I was teaching storytelling at Zenith, individuals said:

  • sell ideas,
  • improve communication,
  • be more concrete,
  • inspire,
  • be more engaging in meetings,
  • improve people’s understanding,
  • persuade.

At the end, I reminded everybody to what they had wanted at the beginning, and said if I hadn’t addressed their own particular interest, now was the time to ask questions. I would answer them if I could.

I reminded them story shapes our lives: the story you tell yourself is the life you live.
