I have delivered StoryWorks workshops across North America for the past several years. My constant message to all who attend is “when telling a story SHOW UP!”
What I mean by this is let us as listeners come to know you in your story, let us connect with you, let us reach across our differences, our unfamiliarity and be bound by a common purpose or by a shared hope.
Here is an amazing example of what I mean by the power of ‘showing up’ in your story.
