The Power Of Storytelling
We can all name them. Who in your business holds your attention when they speak up? Who do you know will be the most engaging dinner conversation? What speaker do you see on a program that pulls you in?
Here’s a guarantee: The names that come to mind will be those who tell stories so well that time seems to stand still.
Whether you’re speaking to an audience of one or 1,000 – on a sales call or a stage; a talk show or around a meal – those who connect with their listeners best do so through great storytelling.
Decades of research and centuries of wisdom make clear that our brains are wired to remember the stories shared well long after the facts grow old. Those who are able to tell meaningful and impactful stories become success stories themselves. They’re the best salespeople—able to close more and bigger deals than competitors. They’re the best leaders, preachers, politicians, mentors and teachers.
Storytelling is the currency of kings.
Don Yaeger has been called “one of America’s greatest story-tellers” by many of today’s great business and thought leaders.
Through decades of work and research in this space, Don has discerned the 10 Elements of a well-told story.
Now he’s structured those elements into a hands-on workshop that takes each audience member through a journey from their scribbled down ideas to a place where they are able to tell their story that provides lasting impact and deeper relationships.
This is the same journey that ultimately led Don to a nationally acclaimed speaking career, the writing of 11 New York Times best-selling books, and a mentoring /coaching relationship with some of the greatest business leaders and sports champions of our lifetime.
This workshop is example driven so you can understand how a well-told story comes to life.
Don’s teachings will fine-tune your ability to:
- Know the right story to tell for the listener sitting before you
- Be able to make that story resonate and evoke the proper response
- Understand when to use credibility-building detail within the telling of your story
- Connect your story in a way that prompts valuable response and action from the listener
