The ability to clearly communicate and motivate timely action is considered the single most important skill set of a successful project manager. Research indicates that the “art” of storytelling in a business setting is a key component of successful leadership, up, down and across the organization.
Industry leaders understand the importance of breaking through the business ""noise"" by using storytelling to rewrite the rules of communication. The workplace is saturated with tasks driven by deadlines. And yet, it is only the emotions the individual experiences that lead to creating motivation and driving successful outcomes. To enhance organizational performance while ensuring emotional engagement requires mastering the art of painting verbal pictures; a skill known as storytelling.
We now understand that in a business environment relating only facts or timelines will typically be forgotten or misunderstood. The technique has been greatly discredited and is certainly not shown to be effective in today's complex workplace. The use of effective storytelling not only makes the message memorable, but also relevant and easily shared.
Participants will learn how to use the power of stories to engage, inspire and produce results. Stories spark the listeners deeper understanding and helps the listener grasp and remember the message. In addition, it will inspire and help retain action items with greater detail than just being handed facts.
