Everyone loves a good story. Whether you are teaching a lesson, leading a meeting or presentation, or going on a date, storytelling is an incredible approach to effective communication. But what makes a story stand out, and engage the listener? A dramatic hook, a funny anecdote or a solid button – all can encourage looking, increase understanding and snag the audience.
