What you will learn:

Leadership Storytelling is a method of communicating a complex idea in a clear and powerful way. Human beings learn from experiences – their own and others – and through stories. As leaders, we learn to use our own stories to communicate important messages to others. Stories create an indelible message and are a container for sharing one’s values, important life lessons, and the impact we have had.

In this 2-hour virtual session we will introduce you to the Why, How and What of storytelling. We will work through both the structure of a great story as well as what it takes to “be” a storyteller. In addition, we will introduce several narrative frameworks that can be used in a variety of presentation situations.

We will work on the following concepts and skills:
- The Why, How and What of Storytelling
- Values exploration and story identification
- Crafting and rehearsing a direct narrative story
- Narrative Structures
