Story Skills for Leaders and Managers


How to increase your effectivesess to motivate teams

A 1-day workshop introducing basic story skills for those who manage others. Story skills complement your management development programme, encouraging confidence, build better engagement and encourage innovation.
There are many pressures on you as a manager in these challenging times. Motivating your team need not be one of them. It is clear that managers, especially those in Health & Social Care, must find new ways to increase quality, productivity and performance with less money and less people. Motivating your team to perform well together based on shared values and shared vision is the key.  Our story skills training programmes begin with a 1-day experiential workshop introducing basic story skills. We then offer a tailor-made programme, eg improving listening skills, stories and Personalisation, team-building workshops, using stories strategically.  Our story skills programmes also build strong links between participants and help them process difficult emotions and issues.
