The Art of Storytelling for Leaders – 06 July, 2018

To drive growth, a leader needs to develop and deliver powerful messages that give people reasons to get excited about the vision. One tool which can be used is Storytelling. It is a tool that helps engage hearts and minds and immediate action. In an age of distraction where people’s attention is constantly on phones and tablets, stories give people a reason to keep listening to your message. They help people remember your important point. A vision such as, “we need to grow by 15 percent” is an abstract statement. It’s not going to inspire people. But a story sticks, and a great story is something that people will share, spreading your vision.

Storytelling is not a nice-to-do activity, but a must-do essential for leaders looking to make great things happen. It is also a skill that can be learnt and developed, and through this course attendees will have the opportunity to understand the fundamentals of storytelling and to practice a technique based on the Bates Story Structure.

By the end of the seminar, attendees are expected to:

  • Understand the importance of storytelling in engaging the hearts and minds of employees.
  • Know the key factors which make a story compelling.
  • Be able to inspire and propel action through storytelling.

This seminar is ideal for directors, department managers and team leaders who need to inspire and keep employees focused and engaged towards the vision and strategy of the organization.
