Storytelling: Just a Technique? Or a Core Competency?
Everyone is talking about storytelling. Is it just a technique that will catch on with a few people but pass through like so many other business approaches? Or, is it a core competency that we are only scratching the surface of in business? If so, how do we utilize story in a way that makes it stick in organizations and in business overall? In this one-hour episode of Story Powered® on The VoiceAmerica™ Talk Radio Network, Lori and her host, Lianne Picot discuss these questions and more.
