  3. Storytelling for Leaders

Description

    Storytelling is not limited to a certain creative group, in fact, human beings are evolutionarily and neurologically tuned to storytelling and story-hearing, and they make sense of the world through stories.

    When we listen to a good story, we are more relaxed, more generous, and more cooperative. We connect and trust the storyteller. As Steve Jobs said, the best way to win people’s hearts and minds is to tell a story.

    A good story makes a great idea, product or service even greater. A leader must be a good storyteller to inspire change, make complex ideas more understandable, and manage change.

    The aim of the training is to raise the awareness of the participants about storytelling, to develop their skills and to enable them to use this skill effectively in their business life and leadership roles.
