Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this storytelling class:

The best way to make a point or inspire action in the workplace is by telling a compelling story. This class is not a general overview about why storytelling in the workplace is important or how famous businesses have used storytelling in the past. This is a nuts and bolts, point-by-point instructional on how you can go about crafting and delivering stories that will move your listeners. 

In this class, students will learn:
  • The two essential elements of stories
  • The difference between stories and “story-ish” information
  • How to apply the Six Senses to create emotional resonance
  • How to shape a narrative across the trajectory of five beats
  • How to zero in on and shape a narrative around one selling point
Takeaways
  • One 2-to-5 minute story in the first draft model
  • A worksheet that guides the student through the steps of crafting future stories
  • The experience of having shared a story with a partner and, optionally, with the whole room
Prereqs & Preparation
Preparation is not mandatory, but it is especially useful for a student to have prepared a short story to share. Each student should think of a message he or she wants to communicate in his/her career now or in the near future. Then think up a story that illustrates that message or proves that point. Zero in on an actual incident (or incidents) and the thoughts, feelings, words and actions of the individuals involved.


School Notes:
For students enrolling in 12 week part time and immersive classes, it is not recommended that you book more than one class simultaneously.

    Very understandable and engaging presentation of the storytelling basics. Kevin could draw an example for every detail he explained which made it very tangible and easy to follow.
