Business is about more than cold information. It’s about the experiences that shape how and why we do the work in the first place. Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins is an inspiring guide to using your own personal stories to get the people you work with to relate to you—and thereby share your passion and goals.

Now in its Second Edition, Story has been fully updated to include:

• “Borrowed Genius:” how-to hints and storytelling innovations from a variety of fields and disciplines

• A look at how technology does and does not change the telling of stories

• Tips for managing and reducing ambiguity through storytelling

• A teaching guide for developing storytelling as a leadership competency in others

• And much more
