About the event
Our ability to communicate clearly and simply is critical for leaders to align their teams around shared purpose and action. This skillset is only becoming more critical in our complex world full of noise. However, even the most important messages cannot be fully received by our key stakeholders, if we’re not speaking from the heart and in the language of their core values and needs.
In studying top CEOs and leaders from around the world, we’ve seen how important communication and storytelling is for strategic alignment across diverse stakeholders. Stories are a language we all understand, regardless of our background or industry. A well-told story helps create a sense of shared purpose and inspires people into action or a common understanding. This makes storytelling an essential part of organizational transformation. With organizations all around the world evolving to become more purpose-centered, this is a moment to harness the power of storytelling and collectively write a more sustainable future.
Join Leaders on Purpose and expert speaker coach, Emma Wainer, in a workshop on how to communicate more effectively with key stakeholders, to unlock strategic, purpose-centered alignment.
What you’ll learn in this workshop:
- Why most communication habits in the workplace are killing creativity
- What NOT to do when communicating ideas or change initiatives to your stakeholders
- How to speak more confidently, clearly, and coherently about important issues
- How to leverage the art and science of storytelling to inspire aligned action and a sense of shared purpose
- The 5 essential key ingredients for telling a transformative story
You’ll even get some practice and feedback from your peers to advance your storytelling and communication skills, workshopping a real idea or pitch you’d like to make to a key stakeholder.
