The Usefulness of Stories II

By |2021-02-23T17:54:29+00:00February 24th, 2021|

How are you doing today? I would say we are doing quite well. Yes, the cases of COVID-19 are still increasing in this country and work seems to be getting busier and crazier. But in all this, I also seize every opportunity to smile, as I was reminded to do yesterday coincidentally. Fortunately, the weather [...]

The Usefulness of Stories I

By |2021-02-10T18:18:47+00:00February 10th, 2021|

I started out the year responding to some open questions and would like to continue on that train today. One of the questions I got last year was what can I do with the skills of storytelling. Initially, I wondered how to respond, but then again, not everyone is or desires to be a storyteller [...]

The Art of Non Judgmental Pointing

By |2021-01-26T16:26:00+00:00January 27th, 2021|

Towards the last days of 2020 (makes it sound like that was ages ago, right?), I got a number of questions from some of you. Thank you for taking the time to reach out with those queries. I haven't forgotten them, but plan to begin answering them, hence today's email is on finger pointing. I [...]

A Great Year

By |2021-01-05T10:38:00+00:00January 6th, 2021|

I bet none of us expected 2020 to turn out the way it did. I still remember having a good laugh reading some memes last year. Take this one as an example - The one asking you where you see yourself in 5 years time never considered COVID-19. It was a strange year in so [...]

A Great Tale

By |2020-12-08T19:10:40+00:00December 9th, 2020|

Some 3 years ago, I had my very first (prepared) speech or icebreaker at Toastmasters. I must confess that before that I had already been speaking in public but yet this one felt different, probably because it was all about the speech. In my previous opportunities at public speaking, I was either presenting my results [...]

Handsy Speaking

By |2020-11-24T20:29:44+00:00November 25th, 2020|

I was chatting away with a friend recently and I was telling him the sweating process which I was going through to figure out a topic to share with you in this post. Maybe it is time to revisit the days of sharing a mini-series on a topic, what do you think? Is there any [...]

Story Characters

By |2020-11-11T10:44:14+00:00November 11th, 2020|

In my last post, I focused on looking at different speakers and some of the effects they can have on people. Based on the effect, you can see their impact on people which begs the question what type of leader you wish to be. Thanks for your response on that, by the way. It always [...]

Worth a Listen?

By |2020-10-28T10:50:41+00:00October 29th, 2020|

In the last post, I introduced the essence of telling stories. We all have opportunities every day to make a difference by sharing our stories to lead, enhance trust and distinguish ourselves. With this post, I want to continue on a similar trend on one of two topics that I have been wanting to write [...]

Why Tell Tales?

By |2020-10-28T10:48:53+00:00October 28th, 2020|

As the weather has been changing in different parts of the world, the virus that causes COVID-19 has been multiplying. This is one of those times that reminds me of my study days and learning about viruses, with benefit of hindsight, should I have become a virologist? Who knows, I could be the one to [...]

Your Brand, Your Story!

By |2020-10-28T10:45:50+00:00October 28th, 2020|

Before going into what I wanted to share with you today, may I ask a question? As part of the book which I sent you an excerpt from some weeks back, I have developed a simple model which can be used to determine what your story is. Would you be interested in going through these [...]
