We are thrilled to have Thaler Pekar with us again for a one-day workshop on story sharing. Those of you who attended our 2012 Leadership Summit gave Thaler high marks for her presentation. During this workshop -- Every Leader Must Share Stories: Developing Your Narrative Intelligence -- Thaler will go beyond the skills and perspectives she shared at the summit and will work with participants on increasing their ability to share stories.
Thaler calls story sharing an “essential skill” for nonprofit leaders because it inspires and moves audiences to take the action you wish them to take. Smart leaders also know that by asking for stories, they can institutionalize core values, share organizational culture, surface and transfer knowledge, and glean otherwise unobtainable insight.
Many leaders, however, are confounded by how and when to share and ask for stories. In this fast-paced, highly interactive program, Thaler takes you deep into understanding what a story really is, and why it matters to your donors, volunteers, staff, and board. You will learn how to find, develop, and share your stories so as to deepen engagement with existing partners and attract new ones. When leaders know what a story is, and how to both share and elicit stories, they communicate at a high advantage.
You’ll leave this workshop able to:
- Experience how stories invite conversation and engagement
- Fully develop at least one persuasive story, and practice making your donors heroes
- Develop your narrative intelligence and leadership.
Thaler’s workshop will be Thursday, October 23, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Anchorage Marriott Hotel. We will allow a break for lunch on your own.
