Tell Me About Yourself
Come to this interactive session and learn how to correctly interpret the question of “Tell me about yourself” and craft a story that will set you apart from your competition right from the start. The program will lead a structured process so that participants not only learn more about storytelling, but also get to practice it. Bring business cards to share. You will become a more effective storyteller, and develop new and meaningful relationships! We will direct individuals in searching for ways to more meaningfully connect with their network. Everyone operates in extremely competitive environments, where credentials and qualifications alone do not place them ahead. People need a compelling, memorable, and persuasive communication tool to connect with their audiences. And they find storytelling to be the answer.
Please bring something you believe to be beautiful to the meeting (or a picture of it). We will also be sending you a link for some short prep work prior to the meeting.
Esther Choy, Founder and Chief Story Facilitator, Leadership Story Lab
The Leadership Story Lab is a training and consulting firm dedicated to teaching classical storytelling to modern leaders.
An alumna of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, Esther first discovered the persuasive power of storytelling during her years working as an admission officer at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. As a top tier school, they had far more highly qualified applicants than seats available. Those who told compelling stories tended to stand out and win admission. Since launching Leadership Story Lab in 2010, she has coached hundreds of managers at
U.S. Fortune 500 companies, helping many of them get promoted, excel in their jobs, and motivate their teams and customers through storytelling. Esther has also worked with the boards of directors of nonprofits to enhance their fundraising capability. She is a frequent speaker at conferences and a lecturer in Kellogg School of Management’s Executive Education Programs. Esther spent most of her childhood in Hong Kong and is currently living in Chicago.
