Why Story and Storytelling?
“Interest creates energy.” –Kathryn Tucker Windham, Storyteller, Selma, AL
Strategic behavior is essential throughout the organization. In the constant of change, it is more important than ever that individuals become energized by a common story of interest−collectively align in order to tell the story of who we are together.
Too often, in an effort to create buy-in for a particular strategy and/or direction, we hit the logical and objective part of the work and miss the expressive and subjective component that leads people to collaborate.
The Story Building for Work course is an interactive learning experience designed to help leaders leverage the power of story and storytelling as they create buy-in; directing individual interest toward the energy required for success.
