Workshop „“Tell me a story before we get down to business” by Morag Mathieson (Saturday)
Stories can change the way we think, act and feel. Leaders can use the power of a good story to influence and motivate their teams. Stories can inspire understanding and action. They can be used as the starting point for building organizational culture.
Stories about heroes, giants and dragons have their place in the dynamic world of business too, particularly when organizations and their people are facing change.
In this session we will look at:
– The kinds of stories we can tell
– how to craft a good story
– telling stories.
