    Kindra Hall, MA Wall Street Journal best selling author, Award-Winning Storyteller Kindra Hall told her first story in the spring of 1992.

    Long before storytelling became a business buzzword, Kindra was fulfilling a 5th grade language arts assignment by reading a story to a room full of out-of-control 3rd graders. Instead of reading from the pages, Kindra set the storybook aside and told the story herself. Within the first few sentences, she held those unruly 3rd graders in the palm of her hand and knew, in that moment, she had stumbled upon something powerful.

    Since that time, Hall has become the go-to expert for storytelling in business and beyond. She is the best-selling author of Stories that Stick: How Storytelling Can Captivate Customers, Influence Audiences, and Transform Your Business. Stories that Stick debuted at #2 on the Wall Street Journal Bestseller List and Forbes said it “may be the most valuable business book you read.” Her highly anticipated second book, Choose Your Story, Change Your Life: Silence Your Inner Critic and Rewrite Your Life from the Inside Out, releases in January of 2022.

    Kindra Hall is a sought-after keynote speaker trusted by global brands to deliver messages that inspire teams and individuals to better communicate the value of their company, their products, and their individuality through strategic storytelling. Hall is also the Chief Storytelling Officer at Success Magazine where she shares the inspiring, often untold, stories of achievers like Daymond John, Deepak Chopra, James Altucher, and Misty Copeland in print and on the podcast Success Stories with Kindra Hall.

    The most important stories that are told are the ones you tell yourself. These stories determine the way you think and feel and act. They are deeply powerful predictors of what you are becoming and what your life will be. Unfortunately, not all self-stories are good for you. And even more challenging, these stories are entirely invisible—an automatic, everyday mental routine so you don’t even recognize they are there. The good news is, you have the power to change them.
    Through shared stories, case studies, and original research, Kindra Hall offers a new window into your psychology to grasp at the deep inner workings of your thoughts and feelings.
