Calvin is a project manager. Today, he receives news that stakeholders are not pleased with one of their deliverables. He’s looking at his agenda for the next project touchpoint with his team. “Looks like a pretty boring meeting,” he thinks, “There must be a better way…a more exciting way…to collaborate and solve problems.” He’s not sure where to begin.

Are stories at work really appropriate? Many have come to recognize the power of storytelling, but struggle to make their stories relevant to the task. Join Story Designer, Rance Greene, for a lively discussion where you will:
  • Discover the purpose of workplace messages
  • Ask four strategic questions that align your message to its purpose
  • Use the Story Design model to unite the best story with your message
Be prepared to share your insights in breakout rooms with peers as you help Calvin with his own challenges. Bring your work experience and stories to the conversation. Your story at work has never been needed more than it is right now.
