NewOrganisational Storytelling

Too often our organisations fail to reach their potential. We work in silos pulling in opposite
directions. We fail to communicate effectively with each other. We are unable to unleash the potential of our teams. On this programme we unleash the power of the story framework to address these problems. While the benefits of using storytelling for communication and marketing are well known, it can also be used to drive improvements to both personal and organisational performance.

On this two-day course you learn to use the framework to take your organisation to new heights. Specifically you will learn how to:

 

  • Create and communicate a compelling organisational purpose
  • Establish throughout the organisation a set of lived shared values that underpin an effective organisational culture
  • Drive continuous improvements  

Key features of the course include:

 An interactive and experiential learning environment providing:

  •  An understanding of how the story framework shapes human interaction
  • Techniques to develop a collective purpose that motivates team members
  • Tools for understanding hidden values, and for helping everyone to live up to the values they aspire to
  • An introduction to the concept of mentor leadership
  •  Opportunities to practice the application of tools and techniques
  • A focus on developing the skills and confidence required to apply the learning in practice

Designed for:

Leaders and those who aspire to exercise leadership, at all levels of an organisation.


Learning outcomes:

On this programme, delegates will develop an action plan to enable them to create and lead a
high performing organisation with a shared sense of purpose, and common values that genuinely
guide behaviour.
