Storytelling techniques like these nine can help you communicate better when you have a story to tell. If you are just starting out, choose one or two of these storytelling tips that you will pay extra attention to in your next presentation.
When you know your purpose, life is more meaningful and easier to navigate. Decisions are easier to make. You’re more interesting to others. Your much clearer on what you’re trying to accomplish.
One of the questions I am asked frequently is, “How did you get started in Storytelling?” Although it’s hard to say for sure, I can tell you the day I think I really began my storytelling journey. The room fell silent. Now I know you think this might just be journalistic tomfoolery to prove my point, but I am telling you, the room fell silent. I think they still had one of the smaller boys dangling in mid-air.
I teach about storytelling, public speaking, and publishing. Each of those three areas has salt-and-pepper level basics that need to be learned, understood, and practiced to be competent. What is it that you do? Does it have “basics” that need to be embraced? I know that you know what these basics are. Maybe we all need to relearn a bit?
