Storytelling makes the difference between a leader and someone who’s just good at their job.
Your experience, vision and skills have helped you to where you are today. They enable you to see things others can’t.
But this creates a gap – a gap of understanding. Others can’t see what you see.
Within that gap, lies misunderstanding, a lack of interest, even conflict.
To be great leaders, we have to bridge that gap.
How Do We Bridge That Gap?
The answer, is storytelling.
When you think of "storytelling", you probably think of people telling stories, or novels, or movies. But did you know there’s more to storytelling than just telling stories?
Storytelling is ultimately about shaping the stories people believe in.
People have stories about you, about your ideas, about your business and so on.
And if you want to communicate with impact, influence people, and inspire them to action, then you need to shape the stories they believe in.
And in this online course, I'll introduce you to a framework that will help you both tell stories, and shape the stories people believe in. That framework is called "Relate, Challenge, Resolve".
Relate, Challenge, Resolve
Every story starts by introducing us to a character in a situation we can relate to. Then, that character meets a challenge. Finally, there is a resolution.
If you look at any story out there, you'll start to notice how it's built around this framework.
But this framework works in just the same way when it comes to shaping the stories people believe in.
When you want to communicate with impact, you need to relate to your audience. When you want to influence people, you need to challenge their way of thinking. And when you want to inspire people to action, you need to resolve their barriers to action.
This isn't just some framework I made up, it's a way of codifying the universal language of storytelling. And it turns out, it has a lot of applications, especially when it comes to communicating in business.
Why Story Habits?
Relating, Challenging and Resolving can also be used as individual skill sets.
Relating is the skill of communicating with impact. Challenging is the skill of influencing people's way of thinking. Resolving is the skill of inspiring people to action.
And the easiest way to master any skill is to start with habits.
Because habits are simple actions, requiring minimal conscious effort, that you can perform repeatedly throughout the day. And as you perform them repeatedly, you get better at them, and this in turn helps you get better at other things.
So in this online course, I'll introduce you to 16 different habits you can use to master the skill of the storytelling with the least amount of effort.
