We all tell stories naturally that illustrate who we are as a person, what we do, and what we believe in. Think of your last conversation with a friend, someone in your family, or a neighbor at a barbeque. “Once upon a time” (or a spin on that) is an everyday, multiple-times-a-day occurrence.
Yet at work, something happens when we “badge in” at our organizations. Stories get lost, and pie charts and copy-heavy slides take over.
