We love stories! Stories are a very special way of communicating ideas, and marketing oneself. Success stories become very powerful tools for people in transition. Success stories can be developed to showcase skills, knowledge, and accomplishments to be used in networking, interviews, resume writing, introductory letters, and in other written and verbal communications. All people with work and life experience have interesting stories, but often they may need help with their good stories. The words one uses to tell the story can be powerfully crafted! A way to identify candidate stories is to ask “tell me something you have done that brings you pride…” The answer to that question typically reflects strengths of the client and could have a tremendous and marketable story behind it!
