Persuasive Leadership Through Storytelling
Storytelling is a proven technique used by authors, journalist and thinkers which can have a dramatic impact on the way you and your organisation communicate. This course on Persuasive Storytelling shows participants how to move beyond data, ‘facts’ and information and harness the power of ‘Storytelling’ in order to become more efficient and effective in all their communications.
Participants will be able to think, speak and present data and information in stories and not catalogues. They will be able to put together an engaging story, form developing insightful content to writing stories that flow and are succinct.
Persuasive Leadership Through Storytelling is an online course within our Leadership & Management Series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
This course is for anyone who prepares and presents arguments, recommendations and conclusions – either for themselves or their organisation (all levels from Director downwards). In addition, this course is for those who present data or research, who will find it particularly useful.
Go above and beyond your training with new collaborative resources from our partnership with Kogan Page, an award-winning independent publisher of business books and content. Additional learning resources include print books, ebooks and online learning courses, which will take you through a journey experience of blended learning.
