Stories are powerful tools of influencing. We tell stories every day. No amount of data on its own can convince us to act. So, are stories a power of good or should we be careful of how their power is used? I share with you 2 TED talks. Each appreciates storytelling and each offers a different angle of looking at stories.
Karen Eber: How your brain responds to stories – and why they’re crucial for leaders
Sisonke Msimang: If a story moves you, act on it
Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every weekend, I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered to be inspiring and insightful. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My weekends’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.
keep exploring and storytelling!
