Ten Ways to Become a Captivating Storyteller By Mike Moore

People love to be told stories but are easily turned off when they are told poorly. Here are ten effective tips to make sure your stories are told well and captivate your listeners.

1. Be on the lookout for stories throughout your day. Stories are everywhere so carry a notepad with you and jot the storyline down in point form. Flesh it out later.

2. Know the story you are going to tell.

3. Keep it short, crisp and flowing.

4. Don’t be afraid to make it your own.

5. Tell the story don’t read it. Anyone can read a story not everyone can tell a story well.

6. Use your voice for dramatic effect.

7. Never let a story drag on and on.

8. Don’t get bogged down with detail.

9. Insert stories into general conversation whenever you get the chance. I heard the other day… I read in the paper recently about… I saw a man/woman in the coffee shop and….
These are just a few of the many ways to insert your story into conversation.

10. Never explain your story to your listeners. Let the story speak for itself.

Testimonial

Mike: I cannot say enough good things about your ” Magnetic Storytelling” audio.  Last week I implemented some of your suggestions in a three part series I gave.  Had people laughing and crying.  Yesterday, had the same thing happen.  What is most amazing was your advice about not pointing out what you want the audience to learn from your stories.  Both weekends, I have had people come up and tell me what they got out of my talk – they were getting things out that I hadn’t put in!
Thanks again – you’ve given me an extremely valuable tool that I hadn’t realized I was missing.  It has radically transformed my effectiveness!
God bless, Bob Fogarty

Coping with Toxic Parents

If Your Problem, As A Teacher, Involves Not Knowing How To Cope With Difficult/Toxic Parents And Fellow Staff Members And You Want To Solve It NOW Then  Read On…

A True Story

I recall teaching with a young woman who was going through hell and was forced to take an extended stress leave because of one toxic parent and one unethical fellow staff member.

What was the problem?

Her teaching style was low key.  She was a bit shy and lacked confidence when talking to parents and peers.

Because of this she was perceived as dull, uninteresting, weak and incompetent even though her students seemed to like her. (What we do in the name of concern for students.)

After 6 months on stress leave she returned to teach at another school under a stronger, more understanding and supportive principal. She never had a problem like that again and is now approaching 20 years in the profession.

The sad fact is that I have seen this type of story played out far too often with  more tragic results.

It is one of the reasons I have committed myself to becoming an advocate for teachers to help promote fair treatment, self confidence, assertiveness, joy and a healthy productive relationship between teacher and parent.
