Influential Storytelling

  • Michigan League, Ann Arbor, MI Conference Room 4 Ann Arbor, Michigan, 48109-1265 United States (map)

Transform an anecdote into a story that will inspire your audience and lend you gravitas.

Storytelling is one of the most important skills a leader can develop to inspire others to join them because it leverages the rational, social, and emotional decision-making in all of us. Effective storytelling can make the difference between achieving compliance and galvanizing a workforce of champions.

This workshop was created for professionals and change makers looking to increase their influence. The session is rooted in experiential learning design, informed by academic research, and facilitated by change experts.
