Something gets lost between that brilliant new strategy and the people who have to make it real. They don’t understand and check out, fade away or underperform because they’re overwhelmed and underinformed. Great leaders connect the dots through great storytelling. They map the message, going beyond bullet-points. They build a story that builds trust, gives purpose and inspires. In this interactive presentation, attendees will learn how to:• Recognize the power of storytelling for making strategic change meaningful and personal• Use tools for framing messages to help audiences understand the ‘why’ and ‘why it matters’• Apply universal storytelling elements like hero, hook and metaphor• Simplify information to be more memorable• Build rapport, trust and transparency through a well-crafted anecdote• Be more adaptive and connected in the delivery of informationAndy Eninger plunders techniques from the world of improvisation, comedy writing, consumer insights and marketing for an innovative and entertaining, experiential learning experience.
