Promises and Greed

  • Episode #45

Story coach Lisa Bloom reads a short fable, The Snake of Dreams, then examines how we are susceptible to allowing our values to shift with circumstances. And in particular to this story, greed can alter how we approach transactions and relationships

Story coach Lisa Bloom is the go-to expert on business story-telling. For decades she’s helped entrepreneurs master this important but overlooked skill. In Once Upon a Business, she’s turning her attention from the craft of storytelling to the stories themselves — the densely evocative folk and fairy tales that we’re all exposed to. 

In each episode of Once Upon a Business, Lisa reads a fairy or folk tale and then extracts rich business lessons that are applicable for entrepreneurs of all stripes. As she puts it, a tiny tale of nine sentences can encompass worlds.

So, come now. Gather around the fire. Lisa’s about to begin….

“Are we all a product of our environment, destined to never stretch beyond those influences that surround us? I like to think not. I’d like to believe we all have the potential to do the right thing, to stand up for what we believe in.”

Lisa Bloom

Following a successful corporate career, Lisa Bloom became an entrepreneur, author, speaker and coach. She built a global business, Story Coach, supporting corporates, entrepreneurs, and coaches with speaking mastery, leadership capability, and marketing impact.
