Next time you need to get a lesson across to an audience, don't underestimate the power of storytelling as a way to inform and enlighten them.Stories provide a wonderful way to convey information. They bring out the attentive child in each of us. They capture people's attention and hearts.Try incorporating any of these storytelling methods into your next presentation as a way to convey a particular point or maxim:Invite a child to come and read a particular passage or story. It can be powerful.Locate someone with storytelling experience to perform during your session.If your group is relatively small, begin a story appropriate for the session, then go around the room and ask each participant to add to the story.Share a “what if” story with your audience: “What if our organization received a $5 million gift?” or “What if funding was to dry up? How would our community be impacted by our inability to deliver services?”Begin your meeting by sharing the first portion of a story, then stop at a point that keeps your group wondering how it will end. Save the end of your story to share as the last item on your meeting's agenda.
