Power of Storytelling

My first book about storytelling – The Story Factor – came out in the year 2000. It was listed in the book “The 100 Best Business Books of All Time.” It’s a good book, but I’ve learned a lot since then and Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins is a stripped down how to guide for finding stories to tell immediately – like this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

For one thing, I no longer need to preach about the power of storytelling. There is plenty of science that provides hard proof that storytelling increases retention, activates the kind of emotions that fuel action, and builds trust – an intangible emotional response based on past and present personal experiences OR an experiential story narrated in a way that stimulates the senses well enough to be recorded as if it were a real live personal experience.
