Questions about Business Storytelling Workshops
I work with organizational teams from 5 people to over 500. Most of my clients are based in North America and Europe. (I’m based on the West Coast of Canada and I speak English.) Further afield? Reach out anyway—I’d love to help!
You can expect your team to redefine how they think about business storytelling and become more strategic about how they apply this essential skill to their work.
Business storytelling is partially about the specific words and partially about the tone or feeling that gets communicated in the messaging. This ability to work with both the emotions and the practical aspects of a message is called integrated intelligence. It’s the essential communication for dynamic and engaging storytelling.
As your team comes to understand storytelling in this more dynamic and authentic way, they will discover new creative approaches for implementing these ideas into their real messaging. I’m there as a facilitator and expert guide to show you precisely what implementing business storytelling requires for you.
Yes. The concepts that are explored in the workshop can apply to any type of business communication. Both any job role—such as marketing, sales, leadership, change management, etc.—as well as any type of communication—such as writing, Powerpoint, videos, social media, emails, etc.
I have worked frequently and successfully with mixed groups.
Most definitely. One of the key pieces we discuss during the workshop is how to integrate factual pieces of information—like features, benefits and data—with the emotional characteristics that will make the information engaging, memorable or inspiring. We spend a lot of time discussing storytelling with data during the workshop.
For sure. We teach clear, practical and insightful techniques that can be applied to any kind of message for any kind of team. In order to use them, however, participants need to move through an inner shift that allows the techniques to become authentic and genuine. The workshop is designed to achieve two goals at once: deliver these storytelling frameworks while also facilitating this inner shift that will enable participants to use them.
All the time. This workshop can be presented in a variety of forms for all kinds of learners. I’ll work with you to customize the workshop to the needs of your group.
