4H / 1 DAY COURSE
The business world is becoming increasingly noisy. With social media, social sales, and the need to get attention, it’s become more challenging than ever to stand out in a sea of competition. So many of the things we hear from companies sound the same. To succeed in this kind of market, one of the best skills you can develop is your storytelling abilities. Good stories capture our attention and shape how we feel. They affect our emotions and change the way we see things.
As Maya Angelou once said, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
This storytelling course is designed to introduce you to the principles of persuasive storytelling and for you to know the components of what makes a persuasive story work. We will teach you how to: understand the objectives of your story, develop a framework that drives persuasive storytelling, develop persuasive content, and use emotion.CONTACT US TO APPLY NOW

When done correctly, storytelling makes your message easier to understand. As a result, the value of what you’re attempting to communicate comes across more clearly. Moreover, a good story engages the imagination and helps establish a connection between you and your prospect, which consequently garners trust and believability.
The persuasive storytelling course is a program designed to teach you the principles of compelling storytelling.
This program provides the skill development required to improve your sales team’s effectiveness. Some of the skills your staff will learn include:
In our increasingly interconnected world, companies and enterprises seem to be continually parroting the same talking points. As a result, the ability to stand out is becoming more essential than ever. To increase your chances of success, you need to develop the skill of storytelling to help separate yourself and your brand from the plethora of others competing for the same eyes and attention as you. And storytelling training is a powerful tool that can help you accomplish this.
Our persuasive storytelling course curriculum offers a framework that enables your team to learn efficiently and effectively. In this course, you can expect to learn:
Storytelling can benefit your employees in many ways: It helps them relate to one another, learn important workplace lessons faster, and better embody the company culture in their daily responsibilities during business hours.
Storytelling is a powerful tool and persuasive technique. People buy based on emotions and use logic and reason to justify the purchase; stories captivate human emotions, which, as a result, establishes rapport and creates an emotional connection with your prospects. So rather than dealing with facts and logic, strong storytelling evokes emotion, which is far more effective for persuasion and sales.
