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.

This 2-day intensive workshop teach you a systematic process that is adaptable to any type of innovation. You will look at how the “fuzzy front end” of innovation fits into the larger company ecosystem, paying particular attention to fostering alignment among internal and external stakeholders: the creators (those who design and build innovative products and processes); the evaluators (those tasked with assessing the organizational fit and market potential of the innovation); and the drivers (those who champion and diffuse the innovation).
