    The Art of Captivating Storytelling

    in Motivation

    Storytelling as an ancient art form and a valuable form of human expression. In Rolf Jensen's The Dream Society, he predicts: "The highest-paid person in the first half of [this] century will be the 'storyteller' [...] valued for his or her ability to produce 'dreams' for public consumption."

    People are captivated by a good story. They enjoy two types of stories: one with which they can identify or relate to and one that allows them a view into the lives of other people. This is why reality television has soared in popularity. We really can't help our curiosity. People love to know what is going on in other's lives. Storytelling is an ancient art that has never lost popularity. At one time it was the stuff that legends were made of. Now it's a way in which we connect and share. It's also a valuable skill to learn.

    Cortney McDermott says, "How can you grow rich in any field? By mastering your story. No one else has your story. It's your snowflake, your unique contribution."

    in Women

    What's YOUR Story? 

    Certified Transformational Life Coaches Ingrid Sthare and Vicy Wilkinson share an interactive mini-class about one of our favorite things:  Storytelling.

    Goal:  Engage with storytelling from the perspective that it's useful for healing, change, and growth. 

    From Narrative Therapy to Healing stories to storytelling to increase the bonds between ourselves and other human beings, our podcast tonight is a follow-up opportunity to share stories and talk about how stories make up who we are after this week's popular Meetup.   

    We'll talk about some key factors like the effect of stories on our perceptions and perspectives, stories as creative force, understanding our strengths and admired qualities in others, narrating the past and our connections to it, learning, and the "magic" of stories to reveal our metaphorical insides... and how stories can even act as crystal balls that show us or even create our futures.

    Masting the Art of Storytelling

    in Motivation

    Today, storytelling is wildly popular. It’s seen as the key to succeeding in business, strengthening organisational culture, and drumming up support for advocacy and campaigns. But why is that? The first reason is obvious: climate change, inequality, violence and other challenges can’t be solved by doing more of the same. We need new narratives that connect with people’s deepest motivations and promote more radical action. Stories engage people at every level – not just in their minds but in their emotions, values and imaginations, which are the drivers of real change. So if we want to transform society, we must learn to tell – and listen to – a new set of stories about the world we want to create.

    This is the sixth year of my annual two-night family Christmas show, filled with wonderful old rare radio shows, stories, songs, and culminating tonight with the old and rare reading by author Truman Capote of his own poignant "A Christmas Memory."

    You'll hear traditional and contemporary holiday tunes and songs; old radio classics, complete holiday stories starring the original (movie version) actors, and more!  The stories vary from year-to-year, but always great nostalgic holiday fare..

    Gather your family around, have a cup of hot cocoa, eggnog, or just a cup of good cheer, and enjoy.

    Tonight's show will not be archived, and only available for listening live each year, when I switch things up and put together a warm and hopefully memorable holiday program for you.

    Merry Christmas, and happiest of holidays to everyone. I wish you each a new year of good health, and abundant peace.

    Thank you to all of my listeners from the bottom of my heart.
