Storytelling in business unifies teams by building trust and credibility. During innovation, stories help to deepen insights, spark the flow of ideas, illuminate solution path, and pitch new concepts. In leadership, stories can be used to convey leadership values, coaching and mentoring, and networking. But many people think, "I don't have any stories to tell." This session can solve that challenge.

You’ll learn how to find stories that capture the hearts and minds of your audience – consumers, customers, employees, or business partners. Whether you are a natural or wanna-be storyteller, you can create stories of human struggle and triumph that leave the listener pondering new truths.

You will learn how to create a treasure chest of story gems that are ready when needed: In the middle of a difficult conversation with an employee, when stepping onto an elevator with a senior executive, or selling a new idea. Using three simple steps and tools, you will:

  • Find the story gems
  • Find the deeper meaning
  • Find the application to your work

Key takeaways:

  • Develop a list of story ideas to use in your professional/business communications
  • Outline stories to set the stage, build intrigue, and create an emotional connection with your audience.
  • Create at least one story to use in professional communications and advocacy
