Bringing Stories Center Stage In Training

You want to engage your learners. You've heard that storytelling is good for that, but you don't know where to begin. Perhaps you don't feel like you're a very good writer. Or you know how to write a good story, but you aren't sure how to connect it to learning objectives. This session shows you how to concretely connect powerful stories to learning. Experience what training can be like when stories take center stage. Share your observations and expertise and dive into a story model that is so simple, you will be able to begin writing your own stories for training when you get back to the office. Worried that it takes high-tech tools to make powerful stories a reality? Not necessarily. Learn how to design and deliver a story using the tools you already own. Are your stakeholders wary of stories? Take away convincing evidence that stories in training work.

Learner Objectives:  

  • Mine analysis and stakeholder interviews for relatable characters and strong conflict.
  • Design an effective story that connects concretely with learning objectives.
