Stories are a powerful medium for creating and making meaning… Stories communicate deeply held individual and organizational values. Listening to the stories… is like reading the maps that guide our thoughts and behaviors.
Russ S. Moxley
Center for Creative Leadership
To be an effective communicator you must tell stories that nurture, comfort, and motivate internal and external stakeholders.
Organizational Storytelling helps you identify, organize, and tell the important stories about you, your department, your organization and its products and services.
It takes you beyond theory to actual practice and is an excellent team building exercise. Organizational Storytelling works with our natural affinity to listen to and tell good stories.
During training participants will use their cell phones (or audio-visual capability will be provided) during the first four hours to record themselves using the techniques learned. Each participant will then present during the second four hours with a video demonstrating mastery of the skills and techniques.
