Published by Dominic R Villari
The idea of using stories in our daily lives is embedded into the human condition. People are instinctively drawn to both hearing stories and telling stories. Practical Storytelling explains the mechanics of how and why stories work and provides step-by-step processes to help you create and tell stories to improve your business and personal relationships.

The example stories presented in the book, including the central story: "Tan's Tile" were chosen to demonstrate aspects of these models and processes. The book breaks a story down into a set of core components and explains how you can construct each one. You'll learn to implement stories in business and social settings including sales, marketing, meetings, training and more. This hands on guide also includes a glossary, exercises, worksheets and sample stories.
