The Power of Story-Shown!

This is a very unique and fun podcast that has the capability of sharing insightful stories in a brief amount of time! What I appreciate about stories is it zaps your feelings more which then helps connect you with the speaker. I loved listening to an episode about fantastic customer service. In about 9 minutes I was flushed with encouragement about how our customer service these days can bring in huge WOW FACTORS! I'm ready to be surprised in a wonderful way. Thanks for sharing Paul!

Paul’s work and keen sense to bring this topic forward and center is a valued service! As a former Marine officer and a high school educator, I can attest that lessons and stories shared here is applicable beyond the confines of a corporate meeting room! Science backs Paul’s message and creates an environment for success. Keep up the good work Paul!
