Somewhere in between aimless chatter, and transactional salesman ship is the art of storytelling. It requires that you keep the listener engaged, know where you are going with the tale, and tell it like it is the first time, no matter how many times you have told the story before. It is public speaking, and it is theater, but in the context of business it is outcome driven.

Culture is built on stories so the power shift culture rests on the ability to craft a compelling narrative.
