All great leaders are great storytellers, and all great communicators understand the power of narrative.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) November 05, 2018
New York Times best-selling author of “The Walking Dead” novels, Jay Bonansinga, and premier global communication skills training provider, Pinnacle Performance Company, have partnered to provide one-of-kind, experiential storytelling for business workshops.
These interactive and fast-paced Story Power masterclasses will teach attendees how to successfully incorporate personal stories and anecdotes to inspire, impact, challenge and motivate their stakeholders. Using the power of narrative, attendees will learn how to inspire audiences to take action, impact how audiences think and feel about subjects, challenge audiences to consider things previously unconsidered, and motivate teams to overcome obstacles and achieve more.
“All great leaders are great storytellers, and all great communicators understand the power of narrative,” said Pinnacle co-founder and CEO David Lewis. “Stories can serve as springboards to communicate new strategies, structures, policies, identities, and goals. Stories connect a listener to what they already feel is important to them—what they want or need. Stories, when delivered effectively, resonate emotionally with a listener and impact the way they think or feel about a subject or topic. We’re thrilled to partner with Jay, a master storyteller, to bring these workshops to our clients.”
Bonansinga and Pinnacle Performance Company co-founder and chief operating officer G. Riley Mills will co-facilitate five Story Power workshops in 2019. For more information regarding these unique, high impact Story Power workshops, please click HERE.
