Why tell stories at work? Here are 7 good reasons | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"This is for everyone and it's not about becoming a storyteller. Let that idea aside, focus on who and what you are, and practice sharing stories.

 

#1 It will improve your communication skills

#2 It will improve your ability to share concepts and creative ideas with clarity.

#3 It will make you more visible to others, and others more visible to you. 

#4 It will improve your ability to share a vision.

#5 It will help you connect with people who can help you and people you can help.

#6 It will help you collect little fragments and stories about people’s dreams, desires, hopes, needs. 

#7 Once in a while, it will help you spot out an important potential connection."

Aside from chronicling, cataloging and curating the company’s advertising materials and more – including rare artwork and collectibles worth hundreds of thousands of dollars – Mooney has served as the brand’s storyteller-in-chief, bringing a historian’s perspective to interviews with The Today Show, the History Channel, CNN and CNBC. He was even once an answer on the trivia game show, Jeopardy!
