Humans are story-making beings; every experience, every relationship, every object we encounter, is stored in the mind in story form. Storytelling is a natural human ability and a powerful communication tool; though one that, in our times, has been neglected and overlooked. But now in the 21st Century, storytelling is making a comeback as an important tool to create influence and to make the workplace a more supportive and productive place.

Story is an information delivery method that engages, holds the attention and activates the emotions of listeners in a way that facts never can. Story can create the optimum conditions for influence to take place.                                      

Participants will:

  • discover why storytelling is such a powerful communication tool
  • gain an overview of how storytelling can be used in organisations
  • learn guidelines for telling stories in organisational settings

At the end of the workshop you will:

  • understand why storytelling is such a powerful communication tool
