SORT BY Relevancy
After a 4-month hiatus, I am back! Today, we will be talking about where business storytelling, enjoying a renaissance of sorts, is headed.
A resurgence is a great thing and storytelling itself - the oldest and original social medium for humans - is evolving in the business world.
In doing my work, chatting with fellow story practitioners and in doing research for a book, here is what I believe the next wave of storytelling will look like, and much of it involves getting out of the way and empowering others. In short, business storytelling is about influence, not control.
We'll chat about six ways storytelling is changing on today's show.

Have you ever felt like giving up, quiting and walking away? After all, I must admit that sounds like the easy thing to do doesn't it. When you feel you can't go any further or a or stick it out any longer, we must ask ourselves questions that will lead us back to a place of hope, faith and an unwavering trust to almighty God. For example, if I give up now, what will I miss out on? Who or what am I trusting in to bring me through such difficult and dark trials in my life? Is there anything that I can learn from this trial or suffering? We must ponder on these kinds of questions because they will help us see the big picture and keep us from feeling a sense of hopelessness. The pain of loss and waves of despair are just too much to bear along. Proverbs 13:12 says this," hope deferred makes the heart sick but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life."For some of you going through a difficult marriage or potential divorce, battling addictions you just can't seem to shake loose from or just listening to the wrong voices who speak hurtful words to you, listen carefully, God is not through with you yet, and He loves you more than you'll ever know. This is a Message of Hope for the Hopeless.

Instead, William chose to seek wisdom from alternative sources. He has attended workshops from many teachers including Elisabeth Claire Prophet and Ram Das. William met Imre Vallyon in 1986 who has been his exclusive teacher ever since. Over the last 24 years, William has been on over forty month long retreats with Imre all over the world including New Zealand, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Canada and America. William has conducted many sessions on these retreats as well as teaching classes in Chicago, San Diego and the Bay Area. He has helped in the publishing of Imre Vallyon's material as well. The true spiritual path is participating in an energy field, this is what Imre speaks about in his books and what he radiates on retreats. William has had the good fortune to experience this energy field.
