“Story Like You Mean It is brilliant. Dr. D.’s sense of others invites even me, who stories by nature, to consider how powerful language helps us showcase our unique gifts, talents, and motivations. This book is a must-read if you want to get to know yourself better, learn how to get people to listen to what you have to say, and change your life.” — Dr. Wanda Heading Grant, Vice-Provost of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Carnegie Mellon University

“This book takes you through the obstacle course of life and helps you make sense of it, then build and tell your story. It’s important because, without a method or system, people—as I say—tend to stay on the couch! This book gets you moving forward in life.” — Joe De Sena, Founder and CEO, Spartan, the world’s leading obstacle race; two-time New York Times bestselling author

Each of us has a story to share, a mixture of lived experiences-planned and unplanned-that come together and give our existence shape and identity. But in a world where we rely on screens and images for communication and self-expression, do we truly know how to tell our story?

Do you know how to tell yours?

In Story Like You Mean It, Dr. Dennis Rebelo helps you communicate with ease and connect with others by constructing a self-narrative with intention and purpose. At the intersection of academic theory and practical experience, Dr. Rebelo shares insights he has gained coaching clients on how to build and then share their life-work narratives. Students from the US Navy and CVS Health's Executive Learning Series for Diverse Suppliers, and even NFL alumni, have used Dr. Rebelo's Peak Storytelling model to navigate personal history, reflect on influential moments, and compellingly communicate their true value. What raw experiences made you who you are today? How do you express them meaningfully to showcase your worth? Dive into the intricacies of StoryPathing, become the master of your own narrative, and reap the benefits of sharing who you truly are.

Dr. Dennis Rebelo is a professor, speaker, and career coach.
