"You know that feeling, when you can’t wait to get home to tell your significant other about the crazy thing that just happened at work? The second you walk through the door, even before you kick off your pinchy-toe shoes, you’re saying, “You’re not going to believe this . . .” as you launch into the story, complete with revealing hand gestures, passion, and well timed pauses that effortlessly build to the riveting climax."
"Storytelling is a folk art that has been passed down from generation to generation. At its best storytelling can hold a village enthralled and can spark goose bumps in the most sceptical of adults. For all that we have gained from modern media we have lost something in our collective ability to tell tales and entertain each other using only our voices and our imagination. Nowhere is this loss sadder than in our relationship to the children closest to us. Children learn so much from being told stories and they develop skills that they will use throughout their lifetime. The following is just a short list of the benefits of telling stories to children:"
How to build a story – The basics
"Once upon a time, public relations professionals only considered using video for major national stories – a video news release.
But over the past several years, in the throes of a slow and rather quiet death, print media has moved past obsolete into antiquated, and video media has surged forward to replace it.

Kahneman continues by explaining that we can think of our brains having two controlling systems, an intuitive system and a rational system. The intuitive system is fast, quick to make judgement and desperate to make a complete story to tell the slower, heavier processing rational system. It seems we have a general tendency to favour the intuitive system and only when this fails to make sense of what we see we use the rational system. In order to keep us processing quickly we use little stories, well-known to us that are similar to the experience at hand. Even when we do not have a complete picture this system will create a story so convincing that we feel that it is real so that our rational system is convinced it doesn’t need to engage. This is why we feel so many situations are familiar. This is why we need stories.

A good story can make or break a presentation, article, or conversation. But why is that? When Buffer co-founder Leo Widrich started to market his product through stories instead of benefits and bullet points, sign-ups went through the roof.
While there is a lot of buzz around storytelling, as demonstrated by at least two books published this year on the subject (see resources), for most people (including me until about a year ago), storytelling is something that exists in a separate domain from our daily life, a domain reserved for entertainment, for education, for enlightenment – but not for success in life.
“How often do you tell your organization's story? Being able to tell your organization’s story well can help you in everything from recruiting volunteers to writing reports. Here are some tips for telling your story well:
1. Stories are about people.

6. Stories have at least one “moment of truth.”
7. Stories have a clear meaning.”

Storytelling is the longest serving, most faithful form of teaching we know.
