Most people won’t be there when you have your shining moments. So, it’s through conversation—storytelling, to be exact—that others learn what to come to you for, what you’re good at, what to count on you and your team for. This one-hour webcast is chock-full of tips and examples. It’s designed specifically for training professionals who want a fresh and practical approach to gaining more influence in your organization and field.

Use stories to teach people about successful programs, pressing priorities, hot initiatives, and special projects. Tell stories as a tool for teaching and influencing people you manage and those you work with cross-functionally.

Learn the Contacts Count Five-Part Formula (segue, situation, SNAFU, solution, significance) for constructing and telling stories that stick and that people love listening to. Hear examples written in past workshops by others in talent development. You’ll make strategically placed stories a comfortable part of your conversations—without bragging!
