Whether you’re a radio show, podcaster, stand-up comic, or video streamer, you are a storyteller. Storytelling is at the heart of effective communication. Many principles make or break stories, but one of the most important is Delayed Resolution. The longer it takes to reveal the outcome of a story, the more influential the payoff (to an extent).
Delayed Resolution is primarily used in the Dress Up stage of storytelling after the setup is firmly established and the audience is engaged.
