Are you a storyteller?

People who are better at telling stories find it easier to get ahead in life. We have all been to social engagements where we observed someone who had captured the attention of a crowd through storytelling. Apparently, this ability is both captivating and attractive.

Everyone has a story and every story has a beginning. Even if you do not consider yourself a good storyteller, the simple fact of opening up and sharing a story about yourself can open the way to closer bonds.

Expressive hand movements can enhance your effectiveness as a persuasive speaker. I have a tendency of talking with my hands even when I’m on the phone as if the person at the other end could see me.
