The Best Story Wins

Learn how to weave narratives into your communication to tap into people’s emotions and make your message stick.

About this course

Facts and figures are important but they speak to people’s intellect and are quickly forgotten. In contrast, as humans we seem hard-wired to remember stories because they trigger our emotions and our imaginations.

That’s why stories are such a powerful tool when it comes to informing, persuading, motivating, and moving people to act.

Let’s be clear: when we talk about stories, we’re not necessarily talking about folktales, and we’re certainly not talking about telling lies! We’re talking about using narratives to help you bring ideas to life, to inspire trust, to connect with your audience, and to communicate with passion.

This half-day intensive covers:

  • Understanding the value of storytelling in professional environments
  • How and when stories can be used
  • How to align supporting narratives with communication goals

  • How to choose the right narrative structure
  • How to create vivid characters and descriptive settings
  • How to use voice and body language to enhance delivery
