March 8, 2016
Hosted by Lianne Picot
Kathy Klotz-Guest is Guest Host
Every businessperson needs to be a storyteller today. Storytelling has been described as the most critical leadership skill needed in the workplace. In your career, again and again, you can share stories as evidence of your sense of purpose, your personal selling points and your vision for future success. Stories build credibility and influence.
Stories create a lasting and vital impression, because, unlike facts and figures, they connect at an emotional level. Our stories come alive when we are authentic and uninhibited enough to include scenic, sensory details.
There is an inspiring hero's journey to be found in the trajectory you build of how you got from there to here or how you'll get from here to there. So how can be a better storyteller in your career? What are the tips and tricks that will help you share your career journey as a powerful story?
Join Kathy Klotz-Guest, founder of Keeping it Human, as she chats with guest Kevin Allison.
