  Story-Telling to Create Change

Second Friday of the Month

3:30-4:30 PM

Co-Chairs: Linda Carney Wiles, MATD - linda.carneywiles@medxcelfm.com 

Brandi Jerdi- Brandi.Jerde@medxcelfm.com

For centuries, people have been using stories to influence others. Story-telling is a powerful tool that can change the way a person feels about products, causes, or even new company policies. You may think story-telling is a no-brainer. However, telling a story well does involve a bit of skill, as story-telling is not the same as telling a story. As leaders, the intention behind the story needs to effect the change in behavior. This can be achieved by telling stories about your own personal experiences or with the experiences that others have shared with you.

During this session, Lisa Johnson will share some tips and techniques for creating stories that can effect change. By participating in this interactive and fun workshop, you will learn how to create a relationship with your audience and use the techniques provided to cultivate a culture of storytelling throughout your organization.

This session will cover:

  • Tips for hooking your audience at the very beginning of your story
  • Tips for making a story irresistible
  • Tips for bringing your stories to life
  • Tips for adding spark, creating change, and providing a takeaway message for your audience
