Event Details

Influence without relying on authority.

Build fast rapport.

Change minds and inspire action.

Anecdote’s Storytelling for Leaders™ program will teach you the techniques you need to better influence, engage and inspire others – just as hundreds of leaders already have, from Melbourne to New York, London to Singapore.

Organisations are changing quickly. Structures are flatter and reporting lines more complex. Staff and customers are spread around the world. And everyone is deafened by the ‘noise’ of information inundation. Yet the modern leader still needs to be able to influence and persuade in this constantly fluid environment.

The sharing of stories orally is a powerful way of cutting through. When we tell stories, people ‘get’ what we are saying – and they remember it. This is the case whether we are communicating informally (which is what we do most of the time) or in a more formal environment such as a presentation.

More than just storytelling

Storytelling for Leaders™ will teach you a systematic method for becoming a better, more confident storyteller. However, the program goes further. You will also learn how to use the magic of stories to get more from others:

  • Story-triggering involves a leader doing something remarkable enough that it inspires people in the organisation to recount what happened. We show you how you can do this successfully.
  • Story-listening is the art of getting others to share stories. You’ll learn how to elicit stories from others, building stronger connections and gaining a better understanding of what’s really happening.
"Stuart led a workshop that introduced the concept of storytelling as well as the main categories of stories in an interactive and engaging way. Thought-provoking and something easily applied, Stuart’s training has helped to introduce more meaningful and human communications into the business." Nick Jones, Group Head of Communications, IPF Ltd. 

More than just a workshop

Storytelling for Leaders™ is not a one-off workshop but a complete six-month program. It includes:

  • A full one-day workshop. The workshop is highly interactive as we strongly believe in the power of practical activities to foster learning. Throughout the day you will engage in hands-on activities designed to build your storytelling skills and confidence. See the workshop in action here.
  • Our unique Deliberate Practice Program (DPP). This six-month workplace-based program includes 24 weekly micro-tasks, which will embed and enhance what was learnt in the workshop. Each 'mini task' takes between 5 and 15 minutes to complete. Most of the learning you do will occur in the workplace, during the DPP, rather than at the workshop.
  • You also get six months online access to your trainer to ask questions and get feedback. Participants also get access to the Storytelling for Leaders® Online Resource Centre that provides additional resources, videos etc for each aspect of the program.
  • During the DPP, we also bring your group back together 4 times for a short (30-60 minute) online video coaching session. You can practice your growing storytelling skills, receive live feedback and advice, and ask questions about the techniques you have been taught. 

“The workshop covered a lot of territory in a way that combined analytical rigour with a clear and informal delivery. I recommend it without reservation.”

Who should attend?

Storytelling for Leaders™ is beneficial to anyone whose role requires them to influence, engage and inspire others. Previous participants have included senior leaders, project managers, salespeople, consultants and trainers.

What else is included in the workshop?

You will receive a detailed 76 page workbook, full of templates, checklists and guidance.

In addition you will receive continental breakfast on arrival; tea, coffee, chilled water, biscuits and fruit throughout the day; a 2-course buffet lunch, and refreshments in the afternoon.

As an organisation change consultant, he helps leaders to achieve positive lasting change in behaviour: for themselves, their teams and their oranisations. He knows first-hand the power that stories have to influence change.

"Stuart has an ability to de-complicate that most basic of human interactions, storytelling, in a way that surfaces those moments of magic, like panning for gold.  Since we met I’ve been putting his advice into action and seen a profound difference in both my coaching presence, but more essentially in my client's results because of this.  I have no hesitation in recommending Stuart to anyone seeking better quality interactions, and I’m looking forward to our next session together." Andrew Kidd, Leadership Effectiveness coach.
