Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 28, 2015 12:01 PM

Here's a fabulous post that speaks to the creative process anyone goes through when improving their business storytelling skills and expanding their authentic voice.


It takes awhile to do both, and not many folk in our field talk about the inner process of becoming a fabulous storyteller. This article explains the 4 stages that occur.


I love that for each stage, the author, Todd Henry, provides several provocative questions for us to help us get through it. Brilliant!


The weekend is here, and its a perfect time to contemplate where you are in the process, and what's coming next.
