Stories are foundational to all major aspects of our lives, from our histories, to our cultures, to our visions for the future. There is something about a story that makes us imagine, envision, and aspire. They are how we give a shape and a structure to our biggest ideas. And they create a connection between storyteller and listener that other forms of communication simply cannot match. 

This module shows learners how to harness the power of storytelling as a leadership tool. They’ll learn what makes a story compelling, how to tap into their own experiences to find authentic stories, and how to tell stories that inspire and motivate others.

This learning experience is part of the connection stream of leadership communication. You can learn more about our development philosophy here.
