Storytelling for Business

Episode 52 – Storytelling for Business

with CEO and Chief Storyteller Karen Eber

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn how to do storytelling right for your business with guest Karen Eber.

Karen is the CEO and Chief Storyteller of Eber Leadership Group, a talent development boutique that helps companies reimagine how to transform their culture, build healthy leaders and teams and leverage storytelling.

Storytelling can help you be more effective as a consultant. So many people are actually afraid of storytelling, but when you cultivate this skill you can become more engaging, shape culture, help teams relate to each other, and give more effective advice.

Storytelling looks easy when it’s done well, but when you try to do it, it doesn’t always go as you expect. How do you find the story? How do you take a risk and tell a vulnerable story that changes everything? How do you make sure the story is relevant to what you’re talking about?

Discover the answers and keys to becoming a better storyteller in this episode.
