Larry Wilson Live with Jack Jackson
"Influence vs. Control — The Power of Storytelling"
Controls are necessary but limited by time and proximity. Influence is not even limited by jurisdiction, but it can be more difficult.
Storytelling, or being able to tell a good story that demonstrates values in action or teaches a lesson, can have a powerful influence on people.
Jack Jackson is a masterful storyteller.
I’ll never forget the first time I heard Jack speak. He was telling the “dock plate story”. It’s not his funniest, but the most powerful. His funniest story is the “Walmart Story”. (Don’t worry, I’ll get him to tell it.)
In this episode, Jack explains how to tell a good story, what to leave in, what to leave out, and when to use different kinds of stories. It is educational and informative, but also one of the most (if not the most) entertaining episodes ever.
