Start With A Story

Written By Kevin Watson

On February 17, 2019
In the meetings you attend, have you noticed the tendency to talk about the facts and figures?

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Why don’t you open up your next team meeting with a personal story, one that shares one of the many experiences you’ve had.

It doesn’t have to be about work. It doesn’t even have to be anything to do with the main topic of the meeting!

A short story about something personal is a great rapport builder. It shows that you are human, too.

And, people will unconsciously draw meaning from your story, often linking to the topic at hand and offering ideas that may not have surfaced without it.
