This 1-day highly interactive workshop explores storytelling as a portfolio of techniques that engage, compel, persuade, and influence, to support better informed decision-making and more effective organizational action. Stories inspire us to try and to buy, to explore and to experiment, to consider new possibilities, and to push the boundaries of the status quo. Stories are embedded in so much of what we do in business – the sales call, the executive pitch, the television advertisement, the managerial recommendation, the job interview, the motivational team talk, and more.
