Science Storytelling & the Paradox of Suspense

Storytelling is one of the most effective tools leaders can use. Effective stories spark action, communicate who you are, transmit values, tame the grapevine, share knowledge, foster collaboration, and lead people into the future. Choosing the right story for the situation and telling it in an appropriate way differentiates leaders in business, education and public spheres. Expert science storytelling is essential to promote public support for research funding for science.
