In The Power of Story, the bestselling coauthor of The Power of Full Engagement examines the way we tell stories about ourselves to ourselves -- and, most importantly, the way we can change those stories to transform our business and personal lives.

All of us continually tell ourselves stories that profoundly effect how others see us and we see ourselves -- stories of success or failure, power or victimhood; about our work, our relationships, our health; about what we want and what we're capable of achieving. Yet few of us even recognize what our stories are, or that we can transform our very destinies by changing the stories we tell.

For decades, at the Human Performance Institute, Dr. Jim Loehr has been examining the power of story to increase engagement and productivity, and top Fortune 500 companies have paid millions to send employees to his program, in which he applies the principles and methods that he now offers here. Global business leaders, world-class athletes, military special forces, and thousands of individuals from every walk of life have sought out and benefited from his life-altering insight and expertise.

Telling ourselves stories provides structure and direction as we navigate life's challenges and opportunities, and helps us interpret our goals and skills. Loehr's approach to creating deeply engaging stories will give you the tools to wield the power of storytelling and forever change your business and personal life.

    " Just OK, some useful insights and suggestions. This book comes from a "just do it mentality" which is fine sometimes. Not a life-changing read for me. "

    " Great main point and he has some great insights up front plus a little good research but then he drifts into ``self help.'' If you like self help, some good advice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Lily | 9/8/2011

    " mostly a lot of thought and not a lot of action. I don't need any help doing that. not really a business book, more like a self-help / reflection book. for people who don't know what their lives are about. such as twenty year olds. "
