“If you’ve heard this story before, don’t stop me, because I’d like to hear it again.”– Groucho Marx
Yes, we have all been guilty of this, some of us more than others! However, the best stories bear repeating, especially the ones that celebrate “back stories” about challenges and achievements.
Develop your story sharing habit and give people the opportunity to show what you value and what makes you tick. Combine it with consistent, positive behaviors and a bit of honest, vulnerability thrown into the mix, and you will be on your way to developing understanding, trust, and productive communications!
