Annette Simmons, in her book "Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins", shares 6 stories of influence. She challenges the reader to "mindfully tell stories that create the kind of results you'd like to see at work, in your family, and in your community."
The six types of stories are:
1. Who I am
2. Why I am here
5. Value in Action
6. I know what you are thinking
