Storytelling in Business: How to Create Lessons that Linger
A common challenge for leaders is the shortened attention span of employees.
If you can’t immediately grab their attention, it can make it nearly impossible to quickly earn their trust and convey your message in a meaningful and memorable way that gets the results you desire.
If you fail to do this, chances are you will be left feeling frustrated, stressed, or even confused by the lack of results.
The best leaders and trainers are great storytellers. It’s all about being memorable. Stories engage our emotions and make our lessons linger in the minds of our employees. If you are looking to improve performance, productivity, or profits, then this session on creating leadership lessons that linger for a lifetime is for you.
