Want to create connections with your staff and clients? Storytelling is the way to go.

Keynote: Lead with your Story

You love a good story … and a good storyteller.  Why do you remember the story about the neighbor’s dog eating baseboards, but you can’t recall today’s meeting agenda? What separates good storytellers from bad ones?

Stories are one of the greatest communication skills you can use to enhance your business and personal life. Why aren’t you telling more? Chances are you’re already using stories occasionally, but you’re not using them when and where you should. And, you’re missing opportunities to connect with clients and grow your businesses because of it.

In this session, participants will learn:

  • Fabulous Five: Five must-haves of professional and personal storytelling.
  • Strategic Sharing: When to share, or not share your story.
  • Story Slip-Ups: Three things to avoid when practicing.
  • The Story of You: Five reasons why stories create connections with your audience and why showcasing your story as a leader build rapport and relationships.
