The missing piece of business storytelling is the art of listening. In this episode, I will share with you what business storytelling is really about and how you can create a listening culture in your organization.
    Here are some of the topics discussed in this episode:
    What business storytelling is really about [02:20]
    Findings from my white paper on how business storytelling improves employee engagement [03:39]
    The missing piece in business storytelling [05:30]
    What comes next after the story? [07:10]
    How a story is constructed [09:19]
    How to master the art of listening [10:20]

    If you want to master the art of listening is not sufficient to simply stop talking. Listening is about facial expressions, body language, it is about what’s not said with words. Despite being more prone to listening than speaking, I had to improve my listening skills throughout https://kabutakapua.com/work-with-me/ (my career.) Today I’m sharing some of that knowledge in a list of 11 ways to master the art of listening.
