Stories grab us. They take us in, transport us, and allow us to live vicariously and visually through another’s experience. But have you ever considered how the stories you tell yourself are impacting your ability to lead, communicate and even believe in yourself and your own identity. People are attracted to stories, “because we’re social creatures and this is how we relate to other people.” It is also how we influence and/or are influenced by others. It’s no surprise. We humans have been communicating through stories for upwards of 20,000 years, back when our flat screens were cave walls. Centuries ago, people passed information from one person to another via storytelling long before they could read or write. As a result, today our brains are hardwired to listen to and respond to stories.
Stories form the very fabric of what we think and how we think and if you are not telling the story, then you are likely the audience of someone else’s – perhaps even accidentally.
In this seminar, Speaker and Novelist Faith Wood will share how the 3 Act Story may be one of the most influential communication opportunities you will ever have – with yourself and others.
