Influencing with Stories

If you look at a brain scan of someone listening to a story it’s far more engaged than when listening to concepts.  This is for you if you ever need to influence people to succeed, to achieve their goals or to make a positive change. For example, during presentations, pitches, negotiations or sales presentations. If you’re not using stories, then people tend to tune out.

 

Stories help you open people’s minds to new possibilities because they bypass the judgmental mind. Plus, people will “get” what you’re trying to communicate so much more effectively.

 

In this episode, Carla Rieger talks all about how we can build our power to positively influence others with the stories we tell. She also shares the 5-part story structure, where to find good stories to tell, why you need a personal WHY story, how to use stories in social media, and how to get over public speaking anxiety. Enjoy this episode.

 

“The whole brain lights up when people listen to a story because it is how we all communicated and learned from each other for eons.”

-Carla Rieger

How to Create a Personal Signature Story in Business

Each and every one of us have hundreds of stories that you could be telling people to attract people into your business whether to motivate your team or attract new customers. In today’s congested marketplace you either tell powerful stories or…people forget you.

 

In this episode, Carla Rieger talks about the “7 Secrets for Helping Your Signature Personal Story Go Viral” the power of using a signature personal story in your business communication. You may already have one if so it is good to have more than one. And if you do not have one, Carla highly suggests you use it in presentations and conversations, online profile, your ‘About’ page and it is the ‘Why you do what you do’ in story form. Lots of people maybe list why they do what they do but they haven’t actually put it in a story.

 

 “Stories captivate people at a whole deep level. You can open minds and hearts through a story in a way you can’t do in other forms of communication.”

-Carla Rieger

This is a great interview I did recently with Deborah Connors, author of A Better Place to Work. She’s an expert in wellness at work. In many organizations and businesses, the culture is one of crises and overload, and work is about surviving versus thriving. It doesn’t have to be that way. Deborah teaches leaders to radically shift culture so that people can flourish.  She is the founder of The Better Workplace Conference, now run by the Conference Board of Canada and in its 22nd year.

She recently released “A Better Place To Work: Daily Practices That Transform Culture,” a book full of stories of transformative workplace change. It is a synthesis of advice from business and organizational health experts which provides over 50 daily practices that support creativity, innovation and proactivity at work.

Deborah is a captivating speaker, storyteller, author and workplace coach. She facilitates the online “8-Weeks To A Better Place To Work” course which follows the chapters of her newly released book and helps people in adapting the practices to meet the needs in their own workplaces. She runs leadership retreats, team workshops and speaks nationally and internationally with the core belief that work can BE POSITIVE and that this benefits both the organization and the people who work there.
