Storytelling is an ancient art form and a powerful way to communicate ideas. Stories are easier to remember than a list of disconnected facts. By engaging a listener’s imagination, stories garner attention, energize the heart, inspire empathy, and can motivate listeners to action. This workshop explores the concept of the storyteller as a leader and offers ways to identify, shape, and share the poignant stories that carry your most important messages.
