People are bombarded with information at every meeting. It is difficult enough just to convey the information clearly to a group of people, never mind having them understand it and take away the key messages.
Storytelling is a skill that will help anyone be clearer and create stickier messages both internally and externally. As human beings our brains are wired to absorb information more easily when it is delivered in the form of a story. It helps us to make sense of the information being delivered and motivates us to act.
Data without story is like directions without a map. You lack the context.
In this full-day workshop participants will learn how to effectively use the following skills in their presentations and internal communications:
- Understand the structure and mechanical elements of a good story.
- Use voice to convey emotional connection to the content.
- Connect body language to the message (when appropriate).
- Accurately read a room and adjust the rhythm and pace.
- Use emotional language to inspire and connect with a group.
This workshop is designed for managers who struggle to deliver difficult messages or leaders who want to have better strategies for dealing with potential conflict in the workplace.
