Dare to tell your story! You never know whom you ‘d touch, encourage and inspire. Your trials, tribulations and triumphs have made you stronger. The lessons you ‘ve learned from your journey can help some face life with a little more courage and confidence.
Have you ever helped yourself or someone else in:
✔️ Growing a business,
✔️ Selling a service to prospects,
✔️ Building a brand or product,
✔️ Enlisting help from friends,
✔️ Founding or co-founding a business, or
✔️ Promoting an idea or cause?
If you answered yes to one of the above questions, you are a Story Warrior in disguise! You have a story to tell. Like all Story Warriors, you can leverage the invisible power of your story in fighting “business fires” such as competition, disruption, rivalry, market downturns, crises, and other unpredictable business calamities.
In a noisy, confusing, and crowded marketplace, you do not fight with arms. You fight with invisible tools. One of the most lethal strategic tools in your business arsenal, is your story. An effective story wins the hearts and minds of friends, foes, and new allies. At the same time, it frames and focuses issues in ways that are highly relatable, credible, and memorable.
Above all, a well-crafted business story gives you a competitive edge by differentiating you from your detractors and competitors. Therefore, by using strategic business stories, you get to share your values and virtues in the politest way possible. This generates buzz and business. Why so?
Because in a confusing world, buzz generates attention, admiration, and recognition!
Your storytelling session was phenomenal, and the attendee feedback confirms that we need to offer your sessions in our other offices! If you’re willing, we’d love to have you present at our Frederick office (located in downtown Frederick) and/or Prince George’s County (located on Bowie State University campus)
Mr. For-mukwai provided a dynamic and energetic presentation regarding storytelling, resiliency, self-development, and keys for successful leadership development. Mr. For-mukwai was even able to include in his program a piece of our Veterans Health Administration Leadership Development which includes the High-Performance Development Model (HPDM). The HPDM provides a framework for the Veterans Health Administration to develop a highly skilled, customer-centered workforce for the 21st century.
Your book, virtual story audit and story coaching sessions have been invaluable. You have given me new ideas to beef up my back-story to connect better with new customers.
There is nothing modest about your ability. Public speakers with your skill are few and far between. It was a joy to hear you speak.
Professor Halprine and members of class have communicated to me that your presentation was highly informative, relevant and entertaining. I would also like to extend an invitation to you to come back and share more of your experience with Morrison again soon.
