A Holiday Story

By Ange Fonce

The holidays are a great time to socialize. 

You never know who might turn up at that party or at your friend’s house.

And in the middle of all of the egg nog and gift wrapping, you are going to need some good stories to tell when you are out meeting new people. 

Here are a few tips on Storytelling that can really improve your holiday party game:

Learning to express yourself through storytelling is one of the most effective skills you can learn for building value because everyone loves a good story.

And the truth is, you can improve your storytelling abilities by paying attention to the way you currently tell stories and then tweaking them with a few simple tips.

Do your stories have a beginning, middle and end? 

Sounds obvious, yet how many stories have you heard where:

The story felt like it came out of nowhere.

There was not enough information for you to get the point.

There did not seem to be a real ending.

To avoid these three situations – make sure you create a beginning, middle, and end to all your stories.

It can be as simple as stating what you are talking about and saying something almost identical at the end.

Here is an example of a holiday themed Identity Story, where I have pointed out the beginning middle and end.


My favorite Christmas moment was... 


The year I was deciding whether I still believed in Santa or not. I had made a list of the things I wanted and handed it to my parents to mail off to the North Pole, and I had guessed they were buying it all.

On Christmas Eve, I had an awesome dream where I was the Nintendo Game character Megaman fighting the Robot Masters. I woke up in a cold sweat, because I had forgotten to put Megaman 2 on my list. I ran downstairs and wrote Santa a note asking him for the game. It was last minute, but if he was real he could use his Christmas powers to get the game for me on short notice.

I woke up, ripped open my first gift and freaked out - it was Megaman 2. There was no way my parents could have known. 


I will never forget that Christmas morning, and obviously, I still believe in Santa.

Do you know what your story is really saying about you? 

Every story says something about its author.

With attraction, we need to be conscious of that fact, because we are trying to present the best possible version of ourselves to the person or people we meet. 

In other words, if your story is boring, you are boring.

If I tell a story about getting drunk and puking everywhere last week at a party - what does that say about me?

It might be funny, yet does it convey a piece of my identity that I feel is valuable in this particular conversation with these particular people? 

Maybe I have a better story. One that is still funny, and paints an entirely different picture of me.

Rather than blurting out the first story that comes to mind, I will think about what aspect of myself I want to convey and tell the appropriate story. 

Think about how to demonstrate value.

To do this, I have to have to be conscious of what I am saying when I speak - which brings me to my next question...

Do You Think Before You Speak?

To get consistent results, you want to think before you speak.

Choose what you say, based on the effect you want.

This is why we practice as most people are unskilled storytellers and have no idea that they need to demonstrate higher value

You can be different. 

For example... 

When subjects like religion and politics come up in conversation, the average person will jump in with their opinion.  

Bad move.

A skilled social artist, on the other hand, will wait. He or she knows that these topics lead to argument - the least seductive form of communication - which could throw roadblocks into attraction building. 

Keep yourself aware of the direction that the conversation is headed.

Attempt to keep it interesting with storytelling, and use questions and observations to navigate away from topics that could ruin the mood. 

The holidays are full of interesting things to talk about and start conversations with.

These talking points will help you continue the conversation, and be the most interesting, thought provoking person in the room.

Thanks for supporting The Tribe, and have a great holiday with some great conversations.

Happy Holidays.
