“Humans simply aren’t moved to action by ‘data dumps,’ dense PowerPoint slides, or spreadsheets packed with figures. People are moved by emotion. The best way to emotionally connect other people to our agenda begins with “Once upon a time…”
Jonathan Gottschall


“Many of the estimated 33 million PowerPoint presentations given daily in the US do not achieve their potential.  In fact, the Wall Street Journal recently reported that bad PowerPoint presentations cost companies $252 million per day in wasted time.  Most presentations contain powerful information, but are presented with a slew of PowerPoint slides leaving the audience with a bunch of data that they have to interpret themselves.”



“Stories are not indicators, they ARE the organization.”
David M. Boje,Professor of management at New Mexico State University


“Tell me the facts and I’ll learn. Tell me the truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.”
An old Native American proverb


“The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”
Henry Miller
