60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey: A Story Is as Alive as the Person Telling It
by Diane Wyzga | June 22, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Lake Chelan, Washington!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Some 30 years ago I was taught that story is a gift to the listener. This never-forgotten advice has shepherded me through decades of professional speaking, litigation consulting, communication coaching, and story strategizing.
Perhaps you’ve experienced someone telling a story and it feels forced, it does not ring true. What’s going on? A story is organic. It will manifest in a certain place or time when it is ready to be told and the teller is ready to serve as the conduit for the story.
If a story feels forced the teller isn’t ready to release it. If this was my client we would continue to collaborate on the key questions: who is it for, how did it come to be, why does it want to be heard, where does it begin, what does it mean. This is how we get to the heart of your message and the message of your heart. By recognizing that a story is as alive as the person telling it.
