The Art of Storytelling (CA005)

Once upon a time, there was a little girl called Red Riding Hood.

No matter how long ago you heard this story, there’s a good chance you can remember a lot of the details. Like whom she was on her way to visit when the wolf showed up. And the line after, “What big teeth you have.” Why is it that you can remember so much about a childhood story, but not what happened in a meeting last week?

Stories are a great way to give your words extra value. When you tell relevant and engaging stories, people relate to what you’re saying more easily, and it’s much more likely they’ll remember it. Improving your storytelling skills can help you connect to colleagues, customers, and clients in new ways to give you great results.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

•Recognize the importance of storytelling in the workplace
•Show an understanding of when to use storytelling in an impactful way
•Explain how to construct a relevant story using your own personal experiences

Why take this course?

From presentations to sales pitches, storytelling can help you in all aspects of your career, no matter what industry you work in. This course will show you how you can become a great storyteller by choosing the most effective stories from your life or career, and presenting them in an engaging and impactful way.
