Moving your stories into the Very Compelling Storytelling category is a scary proposition, isn’t it? Sort of like standing in rush-hour traffic during a polar vortex.
Very compelling storytelling moves you the biggest one millimeter beyond your storytelling comfort level as you can move. Because the most compelling stories are about how you embrace both risk and opportunity.
- First, in your initial decision to tell your compelling story.
- Next, in identifying the mission-critical details for your story.
- Then, in achieving the remarkable outcomes in your story, well-told.
Creating a very compelling storytelling outcome involves more than following a storytelling recipe.
Let’s by crystal clear. The best storytellers, the master storytellers, design their stories, and their programs, based on the format which best serves their ideal audiences and their clients. However, this formula is hardly plug-and-play. Or, same-old, same-old. Or, complacent and well, boring.
These compelling stories are compelling precisely because the best storytellers embrace their vulnerability. In order to tell the type of stories which create your own opportunities. As a result, these storytellers are willing to go “there” with each of you, every time they tell their stories.
Consequently, turning your current stories – even your hidden stories – into compelling stories is a testimonial. To your willingness to deep-dive into your stories. And, in turn, serve and compel others to take action which improve their professional, workforce and client outcomes.
Very compelling storytelling embraces risk and opportunity of moving one millimeter beyond what currently is professionally comfortable. Towards the outcomes which are possible: Today, Tomorrow and Future-forward.
