Weekly Stories Workshop: Conveying your value through sharing your experience
May 17, 2021
4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Without the option of random encounters by the water cooler or lingering lunches with casual conversation, we must make the most of the time we have with bosses, interviewers and anyone who can assist us in our careers. Taking a page from Hollywood’s playbook, we can communicate our value quickly and effectively using stories. We are hardwired for stories and in spite of what we may think, can learn to use them to deliver substantial impact quickly.
Stories workshopped range from rambling to abbreviated for an interview to concise for a resume. Participants develop general stories, stories geared towards introducing themselves, (in a “pitch”), stories for a presentation, and many others. Drop in at any time to make your stories work for whatever context you need to adapt them to.
Who is the workshop for?
Participants represent a range of experience from those just dipping their toes into stories for the first time to experienced coaches. Try it out! We meet for an hour each week. Whether you attend regularly or drop in to polish a story for an upcoming interview, you will hear participants stories, comments and suggestions in all stages of development. Whatever your focus, you will be building your facility 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 audiences 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 hone stories of your successes, large and small to be used as stories
* Prepare for interviews, develop your introduction and tightened resume bullets
* Learn techniques to deliver your message with clarity and impact
Registration required. Sign up here for the date(s) you would like to attend. Registration will close 30 minutes before each session.
To attend, as well as registering, please forward the fee for the hour ($20), via Venmo (@Win-Sheffield), Zelle (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by check.
Meetings will open at 4:15 for general discussion before a 4:30 start.
