This Week’s Episode:
It’s time to throw the confetti! We’ve reached a milestone today! This episode marks our 50th show of Storytelling School and in honor of it, I’m doing something special for you.
People often ask me, “Kymberlee, how do you extract lessons from your stories?” It’s a crucial part of storytelling, so I’ve got you covered.
In today’s show, you’ll hear about seven different stories that each have their own lesson and can be put to use immediately. Every one of these tactical changes can transform your storytelling and YOU!
What do you do when something unexpected happens? What lies in store for you and your audience when you do something surprising? What can you do to stick in people’s minds and affect change in their lives? Who should you compare yourself to? When’s the right time for you to take calculated risks?
Listen in as I cover the above questions and more with stories of blindfolds, martial arts tests, rat traps, Hello Kitties, and then some!
What you will learn in this episode:
- How to incorporate the unexpected into your work
- How to make your own opportunities
- How to make an audience remember you forever
A little about me:
Hi there. I’m Kymberlee.
As a Speaking Strategist and founder of Storytelling School, I’ve had the pleasure of working with over 300 speakers, business leaders, and entrepreneurs worldwide for over a decade. No matter if those folks were getting ready to take the TED or TEDx stage or preparing for a high-stakes presentation with everything on the line, my specialty is High Stakes Short Form Communication. I’ve seen what works when influencing change and what doesn’t. It turns out storytelling is one of the most powerful tools you can have in your arsenal. That’s why I’m building a movement of master storytellers to affect change in the world on a global scale to help people tell real stories that have influence and impact. With effective storytelling, you change people’s lives.
Since competition for potential client attention is fierce, a story can make the difference between being memorable or irrelevant. You’ll find me sharing my matcha tea mishap to discuss perfectionism, my quest for Bruce Lee and Hello Kitty art to explore kindness, or the six months of live blade training I underwent to illustrate presence. I spend my days showing the power of using stories to help cement ideas and bring lessons to life and teaching my clients to do the same.
If you think business owners can’t tell stories or don’t have stories to share with their clients, staff, donors, followers, or investors, I invite you to reconsider your perspective. There’s no better place than in business to tell your stories so audiences, no matter how big or small, can understand how you think and what you value.
Now it’s your turn... If you’re ready to become a master storyteller and affect change in our world, you’ve come to the right place.
