How to Tell an Inspiring Story – Motivational Storytelling | Storytelling In Business

A crucible is defined as a severe test. If you’ve suffered a great personal loss or hardship or endured a life threatening illness or challenge, you have a crucible story.


There can be no artifice or insincerity in the telling of a crucible story. Because these stories are so serious and have the potential for taking an audience to a deep level of emotion and vulnerability, you need to know what you’re doing.


Crucible stories reveal our human frailty, and at the same time, they reveal our incredible strength. They are testaments to the human spirit and can take an audience on a rollercoaster ride of emotion from sadness to joy.
