Learning to use stories and convey important messages is a skill that many great leaders use on a daily basis. In today’s Tuesday Tip Fiona McAllister discusses the relationship between storytelling and vulnerability.

The courage to be vulnerable, and to share your vulnerable moments is one of the keys to telling powerful stories that stick in hearts and minds. We are naturally drawn to people who are willing to share their humanity and talk of their tough moments, challenges and passions.

Keys to great storytelling:

  1. Be willing to be vulnerable – not perfect, strong or something you think you should be but you as you truly are.
  2. Reflect on what your story tells or shows others and if this is the right story then share your story or your journey without self-judgement, shame or guilt.
  3. Accept that it may feel uncomfortable and that’s ok.
