ARE YOU A GOOD STORYTELLER?
by Sandra Schrift
I was reading Spider-Man to one of my grandchildren last week and some other stories from his bookshelves. I noticed that most of the good stories have a hero, a serious challenge and learning something as a result. Good public speakers tell a story that helps the audience identify with themselves, their problems, their needs, their solutions. So how can you help them make their lives better? If you are sharing one of your personal stories, it is best to tell how you overcame your challenge – and that they can too! A story with hope, a story with a happy ending. Then they can become the hero of their own story.
The Coach sez . . . when you speak from the platform, remember it is about them, not you.
