Lesson 1: Storytelling

Introduction

Do you remember how old you were when you first heard a story? What kind of story was it? A story consists of a setting, characters, plot, conflict, and a theme. It teaches us stories based on fictional characters. Storytelling was used as a way to teach the younger generations lessons that were valuable in life. Nevertheless, it expands back to our ancient civilization days too.

Storytelling describes the social and cultural activity of sharing stories.  A good storyteller can capture an audience with their words.  Storytelling is a great skill that can be used during executive presentations, proposals, dinner parties, and more.  The goal is to engage your audience and have them actively involved in your story.  In recent years, storytelling is a skill that gives growing professionals an edge in the business world.
