Storytelling
STRUCTURE YOUR STORY

Any story is a narrative for change. That is exactly what makes stories so attractive. They invite us to discover the way in which our heroes come together and adapt to the changes that they are experiencing.

In order to capture and maintain your audience’s attention, you will need to do the same thing: design your presentation as a story about the change prompted by your idea.

Everything has to change so that nothing changes

Without a context, it is difficult to say if the phrase by Lampedusa is the expression of a manipulation or one of resignation! But it gives us the opportunity for an important reminder: to get your teams moving, you will have to get up, look them in the eye and tell them the story they…

Embrace what you cannot avoid

Obstacles frequently stand before us. And because a complex or high stakes situation brings on stress, it makes us irritable, evasive or apathetic. But there are better things to do rather than suffer. Stress is informative. By decrypting its mechanisms, you can learn, little by little, to face it and to find opportunities in what…

It’s too late to be pessimistic

This holds true for the weather and for public speaking! It is when we are up against the wall that we reproach ourselves for not being sufficiently prepared, brooding about it and envisioning the worst. But it’s too late to blame yourself and it’s time to focus on the basics: what does my audience expect…

There is no need to hope in order to undertake…

It’s great to have ideas! But the first thing you need to do is to find a way to express them. Because, if you cannot build an effective narrative your ideas will never be implemented. It is not a question of making a spectacle of yourself, but of having the exacting standards to prepare your…

We often meet our destiny on the paths we take to avoid it

Many of you avoid speaking in public whenever you can. Because it’s petrifying, because it makes you feel sick, because you’re embarrassed, because you don’t like it… among you there is an incalculable pool of talents and project leaders, who just need to be identified, trained and motivated to take your place and make your…

The future is not what will happen, but what we are going to do

None of your statements should be intended to inform. It’s not information that counts; it’s what it will change for those who listen to you. Each presentation is thus an opportunity to change what people think, feel, know, say or do. To reread: The TED format in a company! Every story talks about change  

I search when I want. I find when I can.

Storytelling methods are like recipes. They allow you to identify and arrange the ingredients in order to make good stories. The more you reason in terms of ingredients, the easier it will be progress step by step and give yourself the time to find the right ideas, the common thread or the right wording that…

Be the change you want to see in the world

We don’t adhere to a project; we adhere to the change that it will spark. That is why, regardless of technological advances, public speaking is and will remain an indispensable act of communication, so that you can tell the story about the change you’re proposing, and anchor a feeling of confidence in your ability to…

Talk to everyone like you would talk to each of us!

A bored audience is first and foremost an audience to whom you have not paid attention. When you are in a conversation, you pay attention to the person you are speaking to; you check if he or she is listening to you, if he or she understands you or if he or she agrees… by…
