Course description

Presence and Storytelling

Recent neuroscience studies suggest that the use of metaphor and story assists our brains to connect deeply with a message, while creating context for its powerful meaning. Customizing your message with a well crafted, personal story increases your presence and creates a long lasting impression on your listeners. This powerful executive learning program leverages the latest research, combines it with proven corporate applications, and delivers a sustainable impact for early and mid-career associates. It serves as a foundation towards executive mastery of transformational leadership behaviors.
