The power of a spoken word

The power of a spoken word | AtoZ-Facebook,Twitter, Linkedin Marketing Social media2 |

Storytellers change their presentation style in different situations. What is suitable for an intimate venue, will not work as well in a large venue. What works for a circle of ten people, does not work in the same way for a circle of twenty-five. Even the hour of day, among many other things, might call for a different capacity or approach. Not everything is possible or fit for storytelling. Amplification might solve a volume issue but it doesn’t do much for intimacy. On the other hand there are situations where it does. The way to gain ‘elasticity’ that will enable a storyteller to adapt as needed, is by learning how to stretch and fold his own wings. It’s like learning how to diminish and increase sound in music. It’s not only changing the volume – the entire sound-production mechanism adapts.

Ahhh -- words of wisdom from one of my colleagues and favorite storytellers -- Llimor Shiponi. This post of hers is all about storytelling elasticity and the power of oral storytelling.


In this electronic age when digital storytelling is often viewed as THE SOLUTION -- this post is a reminder that oral storytelling is still the gold standard.


Want executive presence? Focus on building oral storytelling skills and sharing your stories in person as often as you can.


Want to increase business? Focus on building oral storytelling skills and sharing your stories in person as often as you can.


There's no substitute. Enjoy Limor's wise words of wisdom here!

Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business.

I've chosen them because they actually make a contribution to our knowledge and wisdom about stories, show us how to apply stories to growing our businesses, or give valuable how-to tips.


I weed out all the junk. And besides, who needs another post in why storytelling is important?? Where's the beef?? We want the meat!


I've written reviews of each article to share what I like best, what you can get from reading the article, or what may be missing in the article.


How To Find A Topic: Click on the Filter tab above, and type in a keyword. All the articles with that keyword will appear.


I may occassionally review an article that I think is problematic as a way to educate us all, although most I will simply pass over.  If you wonder if I've seen an article that is not included here, send me a message and I'll respond.

After doing biz story work for over a decade (and with a PhD in Folklore) I hope you find many great insights and tips here. Many thanks for visiting and enjoy the articles!


And I hope you will also visit my website for more tips and tools, & take the free Story IQ assessment so you can see how well developed your storytelling skills and knowledge is:  ;
