Stories swirl around you daily from hearing about a friend's vacation to commiserating with a horrendous airline experience. You tell them, you hear them, you exchange them like spoken currency.
If you share them so often, they've got to be a breeze..right?
Telling an effective story from start to finish is like an Olympic sport. It requires practice, strategy, coaching, timing, feedback, and more of that pesky "p" word - practice.
Terrifically told stories, especially the ones embedded in presentations, have structure. In fact, the best-told stories have a distinct framework. They're told so effectively and seamlessly that you don't notice the deliberate moments of framing, build-up, and callbacks.
