Your Story Changes Everything: Talking About Yourself for Meaningful Professional Relationships

If someone asked, “Why should I trust you?”, what would you say? Stories about yourself are an effective way to establish trust and build meaningful relationships with clients and colleagues. After all—people form meaningful relationships with other people, not their work product.

But what can you say about yourself? How do you know which parts of your life are interesting? Is it OK to be funny? Should you be vulnerable? Chris Graham, head of speaker coaching at TEDxToronto, answers these questions using the same tools used by successful TEDx speakers.

Specific learning outcomes include understanding:

  • How to identify stories that illustrate your values and help people recognize they share your values
  • How to tell a good story about yourself, including how to create opportunities to share that story
  • When and how to be funny and vulnerable
  • How to coach your colleagues to develop and share their own meaningful stories
