Storytelling is a shared process between the teller and the listener. It can be used for leading and communicating values, insights, call-to-action, or vision and will easily cut across barriers of age, experience, skepticism and ideology. It becomes a personal act and creates this immutable connection with the listener at an emotional level.

Storytelling is an essential skill for every leader. The role of a leader at any given time is not to play the individual instruments but to unify the performance and to shape the sound of the ensemble. Leadership at its core is this ability to inspire, influence and persuade people.

Social Entrepreneurs are always persuading their teams, communities, funders, media and partners. And often to convince people it takes more than facts and figures or an appeal to reason. The best way to engage people with the vision in a profound way is to use the power of stories. This workshop will help you reflect on your storytelling skills and give practical suggestions on how you can become a great storyteller.
