If you look at a brain scan of someone listening to a story it’s far more engaged than when listening to concepts. This is for you if you ever need to influence people to succeed, to achieve their goals or to make a positive change. For example, during presentations, pitches, negotiations or sales presentations. If you’re not using stories, then people tend to tune out.
Stories help you open people’s minds to new possibilities because they bypass the judgmental mind. Plus, people will “get” what you’re trying to communicate so much more effectively.
In this episode, Carla Rieger talks all about how we can build our power to positively influence others with the stories we tell. She also shares the 5-part story structure, where to find good stories to tell, why you need a personal WHY story, how to use stories in social media, and how to get over public speaking anxiety. Enjoy this episode.
“The whole brain lights up when people listen to a story because it is how we all communicated and learned from each other for eons.”
