Leveraging the Power of StorytellingStorytelling is an incredibly powerful tool to engage listeners, create an emotional response, persuade, and increase learning retention.
Join us for this session as we learn to leverage the power of storytelling to better communicate with learners, our peers and managers.
Storytelling is great for classroom and web-based training, but can also create more powerful presentations, conversations, marketing, written communication and staff meetings.
In this fast-paced and dynamic workshop you will learn how to:
- Create powerful stories
- Identify when a good story can be most effective
- Incorporate the components of a good story, and avoid the three most common story-killers
- Find sources for powerful stories
- Identify at least one area where story telling could support your current work
Time: 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
