My husband is a learner and highly intuitive. Lately he has recognized the need in himself (and probably in me as well) to become a better storyteller. Since he speaks week after week to college students and since I speak week after week to middle school students he started researching books on this subject. Today one arrived in the mail and I haven't been able to put it down.
It's called the The Story Factor: inspiration, influence and persuasion through the art of storytelling by Annette Simmons
The book is different from others because there is no step by step process, only an unfolding of understanding and sharing of ideas that have always existed but need to be allowed room to breath in us.
So far, I've been inspired to become a more effective communicator, and I've only finished chapter one! I would love to hear if anyone else has cracked this one open.
As for having Coy in my life--as a thinker and motivational presence--how did I get so lucky?
