“You may think that your personal story does not matter or that no one is interested.” Not so! In fact, your story is vital to inspiring others to action. Stories enable us to evoke the shared values of our own lived experiences that move people far more powerfully than the traditional approach to leadership relying on ‘facts and figures’.
Not your usual professional development session, you will leave with the beginnings of your own story that will enable others to ‘get you’ and help you lead by telling stories that can transform everyday moments into sources of inspired action. The workshop is based on the work of Marshall Ganz.
You will receive: the latest expert thinking on the craft of public narrative as a leadership; practice of turning values into action; hands-on, individual coaching to begin your own story of self; readings in advance, so you get the most out of the session; and a one-pager of easy-to-adapt tools for your ongoing work.
