Joseph Prabhakar at TEDx Joseph spoke about Learning to Tell My Story at TEDx Sacramento in September 2015 at San Jose
How the story you tell yourself can hold your life and career back? “Change your story. Change your life” Those stories that hold us back do not come in big shiny packages. Nor are they big and bold. The littlest belief, the tiny voice in the head, the habit that you repeat day after day without even realizing you are repeating it are the ones that play their roles in holding you back from progressing.

What the relationship between storytelling and leadership? Joseph’s Authentic Leadership through Storytelling class reveals and illustrates the power of storytelling to inspire and earn the trust of others.
