How often do you interact with your team over casual topics? Do you discuss the economic downturn or any other current happenings or trends with your employees? Have you realized the power of storytelling while sharing an incident with your employees? Does it make a difference in their way of thinking? Watch this video at TED in which Karen Eber explains why storytelling is important for leaders to better connect with their employees.

The empathy you experience by listening to a narration releases oxytocin in your brain, acting as a mood lifter, helping you remember the intended lesson from the story.
