What’s the process for finding and telling stories that have impact and influence?
Story crafting and telling and writing is, to me, an art. A creative process. Each story a separate piece of clay. So it’s hard to boil it down to a system or a process. Yet so many people keep asking me to share my process. So today, I will. I had the honor of being interviewed by Patricia Fripp, a legend in the speaking business, and a master at coaching the art of speaking. The interview was about my creative process, and in preparation I sat down and went into my creative brain and pulled out the steps I took to a recent story. Today I would love to share that interview with you, in the hopes that it will give you something that will help you find your voice and tell your story. Grab a cup of coffee and settle in. (PS In her interview she mentions a story she saw me tell. She references it on several occasions. So I have included that video below the interview – in case you want to watch it first and have some context.) (PPS I also included the PDF version of my outline in case you want it for reference.)
