It's amazing how we are more apt to remember stories than we do facts.

I'm able to remember a place, person, or event more if I have an associated story attached.

However, if you were to tell me facts and expect me to remember as I do stories, forget it. It ain't happening.

This is why someone coined this phrase: Facts tell. Stories sell. Oh, how true this is.

Why is it then that leaders don't use more stories in communicating with their people?

I believe one of the reasons is vulnerability. It does take some vulnerability to tell stories especially those that are more personal in nature.

In today's episode of The Kingsley Grant Show, you'll hear our guest - Jared Buckley - tell a very moving story of his daughter and how it shifted his leadership mindset. He also helps us understand how to be more vulnerable and how to do so even under stress. Take a listen.

His work entails coaching leaders and executives for high-performance behaviors, training for team performance, and keynoting on topics such as emotional intelligence, performance, and stress.
