How To Be A Humble Storyteller: 5 Solid Steps

How To Be A Humble Storyteller: 5 Solid Steps | digital marketing strategy |
Humility is as important a trait in speakers as it is in leaders.

Once again Forbes writer Nick Morgan has written an article that is spot on -- about speaking and humbleness.

I can hear you saying "But of course, you want to be humble!" Yeah, well all of my clients struggle with one and Nick's post talks about how to get it done.

It's not that my clients are arrogant. In fact, they are the exact opposite. But they all think that sharing their stories is bragging about themselves. They don't want to be arrogant and fear being perceived that way through their storytelling. So we tackle this right up front and I make many of the same points the author does.

Nick wrote some excellent points to consider. And I like the examples he shares of prominent speakers who were not perceived as narcissistic, egotistical, or conceited even though they are/were larger than life.

There is even some current research shared on humbleness and leadership. This is well worth the read if ever you have anxiety about sharing your stories.
