Words are how we think. Stories are how we link.
~ Christina Baldwin
Monica is a POWERFUL storyteller. Storytelling has been a learned way of communication for Monica-having had the experience of learning about her family through story from her 94 year old grandfather. So, she teaches through strategic stories...she coaches through strategic stories…and she makes every-day connections through all types of stories. One might ask, "Don't we all tell stories?" and the answer would be YES. The stories Monica tells, however, are purposeful - crafted with an intent to help an audience to think, feel, or do differently differently after the interaction.
Storytelling is the exchange of something meaningful shared from one person to another. (inform)
Strategic storytelling is telling the right story at the right time to shape the way your audience thinks and feels, and moves them towards a desired action. (motivate/inspire)
