What do you say when someone asks you, “Tell me about yourself?” How do you make your introduction memorable?
The average American spends four hours a day immersed in narrative-based activities. Since the beginning of time, human beings have been using stories to inform and influence. Through recent neurobiological research, we are now uncovering hard evidence on what our ancestors knew all along.
The gift of storytelling isn’t a mysterious inborn ability for a select few. Rather, it is a powerful skill that everyone can learn and master. You don’t need to be a superhero to tell good stories. You do need tools and practice to be persuasive. Come to the next Story Lab to refine your introduction. We've helped many people switch careers, win new business, and raise money through storytelling.
Story Lab is an open mic opportunity to practice your story and receive feedback within a small and supportive setting. We will focus our 2013 storytelling on this vague, prevalent and annoying question, ‘Tell Me About Yourself!” But other stories are always welcome! It’s a great way to refine your networking skills.
Esther Choy, Founder and President of the Leadership Story Lab, will lead a structured process so that participants not only learn more about storytelling, they will practice it.
Participation in previous storytelling workshops is helpful but not required. Bring your story and business cards to share. You will become a more effective storyteller, and develop new and meaningful relationships!
Snacks will be provided.
