The Art of Storytelling for Professionals
As a leader you are expected to inspire your employees to perform at high levels, motivate them toward common goals, encourage them to collaborate with one another while, at the same time, create commitment to the company. One of the strongest tools to help you achieve this is storytelling.
Storytelling touches employees at the emotional level, where it creates vivid pictures in their hearts and minds that will be remembered long after charts and numbers have faded from memory. It gives leaders the ability to use both logic and feelings to mobilize and guide others. Through storytelling people will appreciate why they should act in a certain way to attain their goals (their motivation) and how they can act to reach those goals (their strategy).
