Connecting the Dots Through Story: How to Find and Develop Stories to Make Your Training Stick
Presented by Kelly Vandever
As a trainer, you know that stories connect you and your content to your learners. You know that stories can create legends, inspire action, and change the way people think, act and feel. You even have your three favorite stories that you tell all the time. But in this ever-changing landscape, you need new stories to keep your material relevant. How can you develop more stories? How do you craft those stories so that they connect with your learners and your content? During this session, you’ll create your own story file, learn techniques for molding stories for greater impact, and walk away with a tool to help you create and find more stories in the future. Stories help connect the dots between training goals and learners. So get out your markers and get ready to connect the dots.
