“If a picture is worth 1000 words, a story is worth 1000 pictures.” – Tim Nash

Need to win stakeholder support for a project? Get the buy-in for a change? Create engagement around a top team or organizational priority?

If you want to inspire and motivate others to action, you have to deliver messages that stick. Whatever your desired result, Storytelling is the most effective vehicle to transport messages and make them stick.

Why is that?

Stories have the power to inspire and engage. They relax the listeners and humanize the speaker. Most importantly, stories help you connect to your audience – a prerequisite for trust and mutual empathy. However, it needs to be the right story, at the right time, to the right audience.

This powerful “learning by doing” workshop looks at more than how to craft and deliver a story. It shows you how to present ideas with maximum impact while engaging your listeners at that same time. In addition to personal development, there are multiple benefits to the team, group and organization as well. See below.
