Event description

Description

Craft and tell a change story.

Build your storytelling skills.

Embed stories that illustrate change.

"If you want to change the culture, you need to change the stories." Putting Stories to Work, p.124.

Anecdote’s Storytelling for Change is an eight-week program that gives you the power to inspire change in your workplace and make it stick.

The initial full-day workshop gives you the storytelling skills to craft a change story and get comfortable telling it, as well as find and tell stories that reinforce the change.

The skills you learn during the workshop are then refined and embedded over eight weeks through a set of small, self-guided tasks – one each week – that you will do back at work.

What will I learn?

  • You’ll learn how to spot stories that will help support change.
  • You’ll start to build the habit of sharing stories to illustrate opinions and make points.
  • You’ll learn how to embed powerful stories throughout your business in a systematic and purposeful way, and deal with anti-stories along the way.

“The theme for our manager program this year was ‘Leading Organisational Change’. We wanted a program that equipped our managers to be great leaders and champions of change, and we knew that storytelling was going to be a critical element. We partnered with Anecdote early in the design phase. They were flexible and highly professional throughout the process. Shawn delivered an engaging and interactive session with our managers and the feedback has been excellent. Our managers found the session really interesting and practical and they are already utilising the skills and tools, with impactful results. The materials were well designed and provided important application ideas so that the managers could embed their learning over time” — Val Madsen, General Manager Human Resources, St Barbara.
