Why You Should Start Your Next Meeting With Story Time

Stories play an important role in our culture, including workplace culture. John Trombley, of The Village Business Institute, notes that telling stories about our experiences and others’ experiences helps “share the vision, to explain the company’s mission, educate new employees about corporate culture.”

Stories …

  • are easier to remember than lists, processes and guidelines
  • help us remember the lessons others have learned
  • are entertaining and instructional
  • provide context for overarching concepts
  • make the complex simple and digestible
  • capture the imagination
  • motivate the listener

So how can you productively harness the power of storytelling in your workplace? Read John’s blog here.
