The world is drowning in PowerPoint decks, data, and non-stop information flow. Most of us are already so exhausted by back to back meetings that we’ve just stopped listening. Wake up our hearts and minds by creating meaning with a well-told story that inspires and motivates. Throughout history, great leaders have been great storytellers. Despite this, most of us have spent little time learning or practicing the art of weaving a well told tale. By mastering this classic skill, you’ll connect with others in vivid, visceral ways. You’ll be amazed at the strong response and commitment evoked by your own leadership stories.
Take the mystery out of storytelling with practical strategies that engage people’s emotions, not just their note taking skills. Learn a simple framework to create memorable, identifiable stories and deliver them for maximum impact.
Training includes performance coaching, vocal and physical warm ups, guidelines for building a compelling narrative, and essential techniques for preparation. Our trainers are professional actors, storytellers and improvisers who are also experienced corporate consultants. We have in-depth, real world experience consulting on leadership development across the Fortune 500. We understand the demands faced by corporations today and how essential performance techniques can allow leaders to transform their presence and their stories “from Good to Great.”
