"In this engaging, no-nonsense, and often extremely funny handbook on the craft behind great stories, Rob Biesenbach shares his own storytelling roadmap without hesitation, giving you precisely what you need to raise your business storytelling to an art form." (Shonali Burke, ABC, president & CEO, Shonali Burke Consulting)

What can storytelling do for you?

Study after study confirms that stories have unparalleled power to break down walls, build trust, and influence people to act. More than facts and data alone, stories are fundamental to capturing and expressing our ideas, wishes, and beliefs and getting the results we want. The right story can help you nail a job interview, earn a raise, close a sale, strengthen relationships with customers and employees, become a more comfortable networker, rally a team, and more.

A practical guide for the busy professional.

Taking a fun, no-nonsense approach, Unleash the Power of Storytelling will teach you:

  • The hard science behind why stories work
  • A simple three-part structure for telling any story
  • The role of emotion in fueling great stories
  • How to cut the clutter and focus your story on the essentials
  • How and where to find great stories
  • Tips for delivering your stories in the most effective way possible

It also contains tons of practical examples showing you how to use stories in job interviews, presentations, customer calls, employee meetings - even how to craft the right story for a wedding toast or eulogy!

Great for beginners

Brilliant book for the basics of story telling. Maybe a little basic for those experienced in sales and marketing. Still very valuable every day tips.
