The Power of Story for Leadership

  • QNET Suite 660, 175 Hargrave Street Winnipeg (map)

Two half days (mornings) - Thursdays, October 18 & 25, 2018
8:15 a.m. to 12:00 noon both days


Stories are a powerful way to connect, engage, and motivate people to take action. That makes story a “heavy lifter” when it comes to leadership.

NOTE: This workshop has been expanded to two half days, giving participants more time to explore and practice effective story structures for different leadership situations, as well as get more one-on-one feedback.

Much has been made of using stories to influence others, but it goes beyond that. Stories are a compelling way to align a team to mission and values, open up conversations, build cohesion and commitment, and inspire goal-directed action.

In this workshop you will be provided the opportunity and tools to succinctly identify and articulate your own unique contribution in your current role; discover and tell your own story of strength as well as stories that can lead others to action; explore and practice story structures to use in coaching situations, difficult conversations, to connect with your team and inspire action in others.

The Power of Story is a two-part workshop designed to give leaders the tools to:

  • Identify the essential elements of a powerful story.
  • Articulate your own purpose succinctly.
  • Discover and tell your strongest leadership stories.
  • Explore and practice a winning story structure to take you from elevator pitch to difficult conversation.
  • Listen effectively and ask the right questions to draw story out of others.
  • Structure and tell a strong story of impact.
  • Generate mission statements to guide conversations and teams.
  • Explore and practice an effective story structure that inspires actions and connects with teams.
