From Jason Baptiste at ChanteThis: After a lot of thought, it’s pretty apparent to me what the most valu­able overall skill is for future CEOs and world changers — the ability to tell a story. We live in a world where we are sold to hundreds of times a day and have become ridicu­lously blind to those trying to sell us some­thing. But we’re always up for a good story. Story­telling is what made us love the adver­tise­ments in maga­zines that, as chil­dren, we would rip out and put on our walls and asleep under with inspired awe. Stories are the most powerful form of inspi­ra­tion and persua­sion in the world. · Go to Stop selling and start story­telling →
