There is a common thread in all of the Storytelling Playlist episodes in this series, and that is that storytelling creates connection.
And this episode with guest Bridget Brown helps make it even clearer.
Bridget talks about the how the power of story manifests when you tell on yourself. Telling on yourself does a number of things: it can help others identify with you and help place them closer to the story. It can break barriers for learners that might ordinarily feel isolated. And it creates connections when you're sharing a personal story; people like being in on the story, especially if the way you're communicating it is authentic.
And once you've set the stage to make that connection, you'll find success ahead.
Take a listen to Bridget Brown, how she finds the stories that help grow organizations, and "tells" them to make a positive impact.
