Science of People (SoP3) - Connecting & Inspiring

sop3.1 power of storytelling - (MASTER CLASS)

Win People’s Hearts by Communicating Through Stories


Our ideas, aspirations and plans, however brilliant, carry no weight unless we can win over other people.  Great leaders have recognized the power of storytelling to go beyond the sharing of facts and logic in winning their audience’s hearts – not simply in their formal speeches, but also in everyday conversations.  And yet, storytelling remains one of the most under-tapped tools in leadership, one that most leaders have not formally tapped as a key tool for personal impact.

Power of Storytelling will teach you a powerful communication tool for organizing your strategic ideas into a compelling story.  It will then train you in key principles of storytelling, show you how to build a library of powerful personal stories, and help you practice using these stories to guide, motivate and inspire others.   You will walk out with a powerful and practical toolkit that can help transform your approach to communication – and your impact.
