Hello, nonprofit narrative leaders! It was, once again, an absolute delight to work with you in Anchorage last week. I hope that since the workshop, you were able to recognize and share stories with a newfound enthusiasm (not to mention skills). Have you asked, “Tell me about a time-?”
Please click here if you would like a one-page sheet reviewing How to Find, Develop, and Share Stories.
And don’t forget your homework! You had two assignments:
1. Try to share the story you shared at the workshop, of a time that you saw the impact of your work, in 90 seconds, and then in 60 seconds. Strip it down to its bones. What is necessary? What can be left out? What do you learn by this exercise?
2. Share a story on social media! Again, shortening a story in writing and then sharing it will glean insight into its essence.
I remain available to you, should you have any lingering questions, and, of course, should you like some coaching in developing a story. I can’t wait to return to Alaska, and I hope to see you all again!
In the meantime, you can pick up more story sharing tips at my website.
