Developing storytelling confidence moves you one millimeter forward, beyond remaining professionally comfortable. Embracing not only the risk, but also the opportunity, of connecting your stories to other people’s stories. And growing your professional credibility, as you grow your storytelling acumen.
Storytelling seems to be an extremely popular skill set these days. However, storytelling hardly is the latest flavor of the month professional trend. After all, people have told each other stories ever since they learned to communicate with one other.
Storytelling is an ancient part of our DNA. Because the stories we carry with us are essential for survival.
Storytelling Confidence grows your professional credibility. So, you survive and thrive in today’s complex work environments. Some things really haven’t changed all that much, have they?
Are you a confident storyteller? Or, do you think you have no professional stories to tell? Perhaps you dismiss your stories as unimportant or insignificant. Worse yet, you bury your stories because of embarrassing situations or workplace toxicity.
As a result, you are a hesitant, reluctant and a less-than confident storyteller. Yet, your professional stories – currently untold – ultimately showcase the unique, purpose-driven, differentiated value that you bring to your organization’s table, time after time.
Isn’t it time to uncover your professional value by developing not only your professional stories? But also developing your storytelling confidence. Click on this link and set up a brief exploratory phone call.
The storytelling confidence you develop leverages telling your Signature Stories. These stories are essential to Who You Are as a Professional of Worth.
Consequently, start thinking about developing the stories that are yours, and yours alone, to tell. Stories which grow not only your professional credibility, but also your professional confidence, as well. These stories are not bragging showcases. Rather these stories showcase how you communicate and collaborate productively, profitably and purposefully outside of your professional discipline. Across the organization and throughout your clients’ organizations, as well.
Telling your story impacts employee experience and client experience. Are you ready to tell your story? Take the next steps.
To get started, move one millimeter forward. Beyond what is currently storytelling comfortable. Discover what is professionally possible.
