Weekly Stories Workshop: Conveying your value
February 7, 2022
4:15 pm - 5:30 pm
Take a page from Hollywood’s playbook and communicate your value effectively using stories. We are hardwired for stories and can learn to use them to get results for our careers quickly.
Who is this workshop for?
Participants start with a story to polish, rambling tales, vague ideas, or no idea where to begin and progress to effective resume bullets, impactful answers for interviews and easy conversation starters. Drop in at any time to polish your stories for whatever context you need to adapt them to. Some participants simply listen in as others sharpen their presentation, some get comments on their stories or even work one on one with Win. Try it out!
Whether you attend regularly or drop in to polish a story for an upcoming interview, you will hear participants’ stories in all stages of development. Whatever your focus, you will be building your ability to use stories to convey your value.
Sharing stories is the single most effective way for an employer, a potential employer or a client to experience what it is like to work with you. Stories are as natural for us to tell as they are for our listeners to take in. With a little practice you can master storytelling for your career.
Join us to practice delivering stories engagingly and compellingly. You will:
* Identify and polish stories of your successes, large and small
* Prepare for interviews, develop your introduction and tighten resume bullets
* Learn techniques to deliver your message with clarity and impact
