We routinely hear about the power and impact of storytelling, yet we don't use it often enough at work. Many don't know where to start, feel they do not have a story to tell, or are concerned with being vulnerable.  This interactive session covers how to take one of the oldest forms of communication to use to connect, influence and have positive impact.

Learning Objectives:

  • Leverage Improv principles for telling stories
  • Understand the neuroscience behind storytelling and how to leverage it to influence behavior
  • Learn where to find stories
  • Practice the three-step storytelling model
  • Build a toolbox of stories
