As a speaker, trainer, consultant or coach, do you want to be remembered, rehired, and referred? This question is often followed by a summary of why you should learn to tell great stories. The truth is, you should tell great stories, and that is both a skill and an art that comes with PRACTICE.
- Where do you get those GREAT and MEMORABLE Stories?
- How do you develop a ‘KEY STORY’?
- Do I really need to have key stories anyway?
These questions and more will be answered in this session.
Learnings and Opportunities:
- What is a key story?
- Why use a story (& why not to)?
- How to develop your personal stories?
- How/When to use other people’s experiences as one of your key stories?
- What are the ingredients of a signature story?
- What are common themes used in signature stories?
Additionally, you will have the opportunity to actually develop a key story (if you already have one, this will be a different one to add to your storytelling toolbox), to share it during the session, and receive feedback, questions, and applause.
