    Storytelling - A Leadership Competency for HR Professionals

    Presented by:

    Patti Anesetti, TaskLogic Group LLC

    If you want someone to remember you and your message, tell a story. Stories are remembered and repeated long after facts and figures fade.

    We know that using data and metrics is a sure fire way for HR professionals to elevate their game and demonstrate they can talk the same language as business leaders. But PowerPoint slides, data and metrics should only be the backdrop to the story we use to make our case.  Facts aren’t influential and don’t change how people think until they mean something to someone.  It is the power of the story that converts data into engaging, enlightened, and interesting discussion.

    Being able to tell a good story is the critical element in any presentation or conversation where a person wants to make a point, gain support or influence someone. With that in mind, this interactive workshop will focus on practical tools that will help you to mine your Human Resources experiences and craft compelling stories that influence and engage others.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Understand the business case for using storytelling as an HR professional.
    • Identify your own HR stories. Learn how to leverage them effectively and increase HR’s credibility with company leaders.
    • Learn a Storytelling model that will help you breathe life into your HR data and message.
