Storytelling for the Corporate Classes!

Storytelling is coming out of the classroom and into the boardroom. Today, you can study for a degree in ‘Storytelling’. You can hire one of a plethora of professional ‘Business Storytelling Trainers’ to assist you in communication to employees and clients. You can read a whole library of books designed to help you become a skilled storyteller, able to define and communicate your self-image to progress your career trajectory from the ‘Once upon a time…’ to the ‘…happily ever after’.

How can Storytelling make me, or my company more successful?

So you want to be successful? Well, in that case, it’s time to forget almost everything you’ve heard up to now. Forget everything (well almost) that you’ve ever heard on a Training Course. Animals get trained.- People learn!

Intrigued? It?s time to turn back the clock.

Come along and get Untrained. It?s no secret that the road to success is paved with excellent communication skills, however what is less well known is that it is essential that these skills are learned and used in the right order. To be successful, you must lay this paving correctly or it will crumble and disintegrate. These skills can be taught quickly and effectively, changing YOUR life forever.

Words, we’ve heard them all before, and we know that they work, so why don’t they always work?

More importantly, why don’t they always work for you?

Understand-Repeat-Organise- Consolidate-Plan-Confirm-Control-Impress-Listen-Evaluate- Confirm-Understand-Repeat-Organise-Plan-Confirm-Direct-Inspire-Influence-Convince-Persuade-Negotiate.
