Why do we love stories? And why does storytelling work so well?
From the early days of homo sapiens, we used stories for survival. First, we used them to build trust. We quickly learned how to use that trust built by stories to encourage trade. Many millennia later, we have the most technologically advanced tools of communication we've ever had, but at the root of all of them are the same thing: good stories.
There is a science to why storytelling works and structure to follow so that we all can become better storytellers. The better storytellers we are, the better we can explain our mission, define our purpose, promote our causes, and sell our goods and services.
