Personal Story at Work?
Some of the most memorable and life changing stories are of the raw and gritty variety. Stories of personal struggle and loss can be extremely powerful. But how do you know if your personal story is too personal to share?
The answer? It depends.
The beauty of storytelling is that it changes audience by audience. Talking about your personal story to a friend is much different than telling it at a job interview. The good news is that this is your story! How you tell it is just as important as who you are telling it to.
In this video, I will share the questions I ask when deciding what story to tell, how much of it to share and with whom. It’s just three simple steps that will help you decide how to share your story the right way. Because even the tough stories for you to tell, could be a gift to your listener.
