About this Tutorial

Picture the last time you were told a great story about change…how did it make you feel? Were you inspired, motivated, or moved to action? As Agile Coaches and change agents we must influence teams to look at the world through a new lens and storytelling is one of the most powerful tools we have available to help us to do this.

During this interactive session you will learn the basic framework to construct a powerful story based on the work of great storytellers including Stephen Denning, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, and many others. You will learn about the different types of stories you can tell and which situations are best for each type. You will also have an opportunity to craft and share a story using the storytelling framework learned during the session to help inspire change around a real problem you’re experiencing today.

So gather round everyone and let me tell you a story…
