  1. Hello Adam, I’ve enjoyed following you.

    Here’s a suggestion that should increase readership and impact – tell stories. Provide some profiles of people growing as a result of interacting with you, their insights, their before and after snapshots, etc. You have a wealth of interactions to draw from, so with suitable masking of real identities of course, start there and share with us what you’re seeing.

    Looking forward to seeing what this will look like.

    All the best to you in 2015,

    • Thanks for replying with an encouraging piece of advice, Gary. I agree. Stories are powerful and memorable ways to teach ideas to people and share experiences for reflection. My hero, Jesus Christ, used stories in his teaching ministry and among his friends/family! I love to tell stories when speaking to groups and individuals, but have been reluctant to write stories here because I am not sure that the readers will connect with the content and I do want to honour confidentiality. For example, if I am speaking with an executive that I am coaching and we encounter a subject of interest, then I can “read and react” in order to provide a story from my relevant experiences that I can customize to his interest. However, the same story might not be as interesting if written down for 2000 readers from a different context of interest. Makes sense? I suppose the learning here is that I need to practice “proactive” story writing rather than “reactive” story telling. I would like to become a better story teller and this nudge to try more stories through this written medium might be just what I needed. So Gary, is there a story you think people might benefit from reading? Is there a subject you think I have uniquely insightful stories on? Thanks again. I hope your advice will improve my service to you and every reader! I always remember you saying “It is amazing what can get done if we don’t care who gets the credit”. Well, if my written stories start to serve more people, then you can take appropriate credit for the advice that prompted the helpful stories. 🙂

  2. How do I provide some profiles of people growing as a result of interacting with me (their insights, their before and after snapshots, etc) without sounds too self-promoting? Are “life change” testimonial quotes and videos too much of a cultural cliche? I’ll give it some reflection and would welcome further comments below about how to share stories effectively. Maybe my first hand written recollections would do the job for now rather than trying to get people to write endorsements or sit down in front of a camera. However, If I write it, then it might sound self-promoting, self-congratulatory or proud/boastful. Anyways, I will pray about it as I watch NFL football playoffs today. Again, comments are welcome in the mean time to guide my approach to sharing stories here. Thanks Gary and everyone who reads this! 🙂
