Presentation Abstract:

The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the Mudville nine that day…
Frankly, Scarlett…
That’s no moon!  It’s a space station!

They’re movies.  They’re stories.  They frame our experiences in ways we couldn’t do by ourselves.

What many managers fail to realize is that if you want someone to remember what you told them, you need a story.  If you want someone to understand your perspective, you  need a story.   If you want to appear empathetic or receive empathy, you need a story.   Want to lead?  Want to understand or be understood?  Want to get others on board for a strategy?  Stories.  Stories. Stories.  Sadly most of us go through life without any real coaching in storytelling.  No one lets us know how to do it well, briefly, and powerfully.   In this powerful presentation, Carl Pritchard not only shares how to tell stories more effectively, but also where to find the stories that will truly hit home.
