Leadership Storytelling

Proven, step-by-step guide to storytelling for leaders, managers, business owners, engineers and professionals!

Hello,

Thank you so very much for taking this course! For someone whose central theme in life is gratitude, this means a whole lot to me. Thank you.

How do you speak in a way that your audience will listen? And what if the audience is your own team, bosses, peers, customers or other stakeholders? Knowing very well that audience are always short on time and attention, you have to really work your magic to communicate your message to them - be it improved performance, reduction in cost, sticking to the timeline, kicking off a project, selling a product or service or simply making a point.

While you can throw numbers and facts at your audience, the likelihood of them understanding, let alone remembering them, is slim to none. On the other hand if you can learn to tell a story and wrap your message as part of that, then that will certainly make the point and make it memorable beyond just the time they are sitting in front of you.

That is what stories do. And they do it powerfully well.

Now, anyone can learn to tell a story. With a simple template anyone can tell a story the same way that professionals do. Combine it with proven nonverbal techniques, you now have a winning combination to win the hearts and minds of any audience. That is exactly what this course does.

I know this because I have done it for over 20 years now. And it has worked time and time again. Consistently. Today it is the single best tool in my communication toolkit.

I am inviting you to take this journey with me. I will be with you on this journey. Explaining everything from the very basics.

Write to me. Hit me up on Twitter. I will be happy to help.

Thank you again. I am grateful you are taking this course. My very best for your success in this journey.
