Storytelling at Work

Mitch Ditkoff

STORYTELLING AT WORK, based on the book of the same name, is a highly engaging tutorial designed to help participants understand the value of storytelling as a way to deliver meaningful, memorable messages on the job. But even more importantly, Storytelling at Work provides the know how and inspiration for participants to play their part in elevating the conversation in the workplace in order to foster a dynamic, sustainable culture of innovation. Communicating data and information is not sufficient to foster positive change. Nor are pep talks, carrots, or sticks. Something else is needed. And that “something else” is your company’s biggest untapped human resource — the ability each and every person has to share their “tacit knowledge” with each other — the BEST of their best practices.
