Storytelling and Organisational Culture - Interactive seminar lead by Kirsty Tagg, Dale Carnegie Northern England

‘’Sapiens rule the world, because we are the only animal that can cooperate flexibly in large numbers. We can create mass cooperation networks, in which thousands and millions of complete strangers work together towards common goals. One-on-one, even ten-on-ten, we humans are embarrassingly similar to chimpanzees. Any attempt to understand our unique role in the world by studying our brains, our bodies, or our family relations, is doomed to failure. The real difference between us and chimpanzees is the mysterious glue that enables millions of humans to cooperate effectively.

This mysterious glue is made of stories, not genes.’’

Yuval Noah Haraari, Sapiens, 2011

Kirsty Tagg of Dale Carnegie will be delivering a high impact, interactive workshop to uncover the importance of what sets us apart from other animals…storytelling. Sharing how it helps us to create culture, connection, enhanced communication and creative success.

The 2 hour workshop will provide quick wins, practical tools and tips on storytelling for action.  Sharing the insight into why in an everchanging competitive environment we need to rely on our evolutionary skill to tell stories for success.

Here is a quick overview of the points covered;

  • The importance of storytelling and sharing best practice.
  • How storytelling impacts culture
  • The role of leadership in creation of culture
  • Quick wins from Dale Carnegie’s own story ‘How to win Friends and Influence People’
  • Taking action for the stories told in our environment.
