TED Playlist: How to Tell A Story

Who doesn’t love a good TED talk?

We found this TED playlist exceptionally fitting for our “The World’s A Stage, What’s Your Story?” principle that explores the art of storytelling and how stories have the power to transform our perceptions of the world.

Why do stories resonate? Why do we love our favorite stories? Do they need a beginning, middle and end? Do they need a character who changes by the conclusion? How can we use story to influence people and culture?

The principles of storytelling provide a great foundation for us to learn from. These uncommon artists explore storytelling from a unique perspective.

Andrew Stanton: The clues to a great story

Isabel Allende: Tales of passion

J.J. Abrams: The mystery box
