Stories are a powerful way to connect, engage, and motivate people to take action. That makes story a “heavy lifter” when it comes to leadership.

Much has been made of using stories to influence others, but it goes beyond that. Stories are a compelling way to align a team to mission and values, open up conversations, build cohesion and commitment, and inspire goal-directed action.

In this workshop you will be provided the opportunity and tools to succinctly identify and articulate your own unique contribution in your current role; discover and tell your own story of strength as well as stories that can lead others to action; explore and practice story structures to use in coaching situations, difficult conversations, to connect with your team and inspire action in others.

The Power of Story is a two-part workshop designed to give leaders the tools to:

  • Identify the essential elements of a powerful story.
  • Articulate your own purpose succinctly.
  • Discover and tell your strongest leadership stories.
  • Explore and practice a winning story structure to take you from elevator pitch to difficult conversation.
  • Listen effectively and ask the right questions to draw story out of others.
  • Structure and tell a strong story of impact.
  • Generate mission statements to guide conversations and teams.
  • Explore and practice an effective story structure that inspires actions and connects with teams.

Facilitator: : Cate Friesen knows that the stories you tell yourself about you, and the stories about you that you tell others are powerful.
