Speaker - Dr. Merle Heckman
Topic: Intentional Storytelling
Facts – lots of facts. Our organizations thrive on facts. Data, charts, graphs, acronyms, information – all are the elements of we deal with almost 24 hours. Through PowerPoint slides, forecasts, predictions, and reviews provide high volume of information. Yet employees who attend meetings will often make comments about not understanding the information just presented. Do the employees who receive a deluge of facts in meetings and updates understand what is being said? Do employees understand the information so they can retain the knowledge? Do large numbers of PowerPoint slides assure the transfer of knowledge from the speaker to the listener? A gap is present between the presentation with mass information given and the receptivity of the listeners allowing them to understand and apply what is heard. Intentionally storytelling can bridge this gap. The presentation will show the value and use of presenting with stories.
Presentation Learning Objectives:
- To reveal the business gain and benefit of storytelling – contrary to common opinion.
- To explain a real example of how purposeful storytelling affected an organization in a positive way.
- To understand how stories increase the retention and application of ideas that are otherwise forgotten.
Presentation Is Approved For 1.00 SHRM-Professional Development Recertification Credit and 1.00 HRCI-Business Credit
