Description

The Power of Storytelling

Do you want to improve the effectiveness of your communication at work? You’re not alone. Most people struggle to get their message across, whether it’s in a meeting, a presentation or in a one to one conversation with a staff or team member. Effective communication win hearts and minds. It gets results. It creates clarity and cohesion amongst peers, teams, customers and suppliers.

Stories can bring even the most mundane things to life. People love stories because they convey meaning. They recognise that good communication is about more than the ‘facts’. It’s about how people interpret the facts and change their attitudes and behaviours as a result.

This workshop will help you explore the value and the power of storytelling at work. This interactive evening will help you to tune your communication skills so you can be more effective at work. It will help you understand what makes a good story and how you can harness the power of storytelling to supercharge your work life.
