If you want to learn about a culture, listen to the stories. If you want to change the culture, change the stories.” ~ Michael Margolis, Founder of Get Storied, Speaker, Business Coach, Storyteller,
I was delighted to stumble upon this quote from Michael Margolis on the power of storytelling… not just in life, but in business as well. I’ve been blabbering – seemingly forever – on the power of storytelling in brand building. Stories connect people on an emotional level, it’s a natural and instinctive part of our upbringing – regardless of cultural background – for stories and the practice of storytelling are present in any culture. And if we stop telling stories and listening to them, the human race will come to a screeching halt! And its existence will go “poof”…!
Margolis makes another connection, which is right up my alley, the role of culture.
