About This Training

Salespeople get used to confrontation with skepticism and disbelief. With systems that are “too big to fail.” With people who have “always done it this way”.

In order to overcome, you need to sketch out a vision of change, convey your value proposition and humanize complex data. You need to influence prospects by connecting logic with emotion.

Your credibility and success comes down to framing the right story. That’s why Sales Storytelling requires such a different approach.

Why Business Storytelling?

A radically authentic way of creating genuine brand engagement

We all tell stories in order to make sense of the world in which we live. By teaching us to set context, identify key characters and describe an emotional journey, storytelling helps us relate to each other on a human level, breaking down the boundaries and power structures of traditional organizations and reinforcing values of inclusion, collaborative work and empathy.

Why TRANSFORMATIONAL STORYTELLING?

We all tell stories in order to make sense of the world. By teaching us to set context, identify key characters and describe a journey of change, storytelling provides us with an emotional  language that can engage our audiences clearly and meaningfully. Using the tools we acquire through storytelling, we inspire meaningful work, reinforce shared values and generate the powerful connections with customers, employees and colleagues that lead to growth.

At a more profound level, the stories we tell ourselves often contain limiting ideas that can compromise our progress. Telling a different story is what breeds hope. By courageously addressing the questions raised through storytelling, we can break down legacy power structures, heal old wounds and restore an optimistic vision of a just and balanced world.

Story teaches us that it’s the process, not the destination that matters; by following this heroic path, as the immortal storyteller Joseph Campbell tells us, “doors will appear where there were once only walls.” In this sense, storytelling is our shared human birthright, and the oldest, most effective tool that we have for designing a better world.
