Most messages and value-points shared across the boardroom table, across mediums get lost in the din of depthless, digital, corporate jargon. Managers and leaders across the world spend frustrating hours trying to make a point and trying to make it stick until action and results are achieved.
The reason is that information and, even, good knowledge needs a buy-in, an emotional buy-in by the listeners for them to accept, understand and act upon. The answer lies in using the dynamics of old-fashioned storytelling which involves listeners at a subjective, emotional and a primal level.
Corporate storytelling is not just an inborn gift or an acquired art but has clear-cut, scientific and neuro-psychological reasons for its success and long-term impact in all business conversations. In this workshop, inspired by the book, the HeART of STORY, understand the neuroscience behind effective storytelling and then master the skill set. It, after all, is a learnable skill.
