"Lead. Sell. Inspire....Through the Art of Strategic Storytelling"
With Jenny Riddle Harness the irresistible power of strategic storytelling, your greatest secret weapon to grab attention, influence others, and inspire people to action. Storytelling is the most persuasive and readily available tool for capturing and maintaining attention in the 21 C. marketplace. This is true for individuals, non-profits, small businesses, and major corporations. Everyone has the ability to tell stories, and I can teach you how. Fast-track your organization from good to great…one story at a time.
Did you know? *Stories are remembered far longer than facts. * Oxytocin is raised when listening to a story, and oxytocin promotes empathy, cooperation, and trust. * People are more likely to support a cause after listening to a story. * A mission statement is not a story. *You may not think you have stories, but you do.
Your organization would rise above the rest if your team members: *Learned to tell persuasive, relevant stories that attract customers, clients, or donors. *Realized that those who share good stories have a powerful advantage over others. *Replaced meaningless jargon and cliches with well-told stories. *Embraced the idea that the best pitch is a well-told story. *Capitalized on the proven fact that stories are more memorable than facts. * Utilized storytelling to unite people around a cause.
