Join Us for Speaker Babette Ten Haken for Building Trust: Tell the Stories Employees and Customers Really Need to Hear

 

PMI HVC STORYTELLING PRESENTATION AND MINIWORKSHOP, APRIL 23, 2020

Program Title: “Build Trust. Tell the Stories Employees and Customers really need to Hear.” Keywords: Communication, Workforce Profitability, Customer Retention Do your internal and external customers trust the stories you tell? Are these stories actually use- or business cases which stop, just when they need to continue? Courageous and compelling storytelling is your key to business growth: acquiring, serving and retaining customers, partners, stakeholders and your colleagues: the internal customers you serve. Explore the key elements of legendary storytelling. Rediscover your own Signature Stories, your legends, residing in the stories you currently dismiss as unimportant or bury because these stories are associated with workplace toxicity. By leveraging co-created storytelling, across the organization, successfully reflect the voices of employees, stakeholders and clients. The voices you can design and innovate new products, services and systems around. Leverage a storytelling culture as part of your compelling human capital strategy. When you continuously connect your story to everyone else’s story, you co-create Trust: the most powerful employee and customer experience of all. One of the most powerful human experiences of all. To get to where you need to go, Together. Outcomes and Benefits: • Leverage Signature Storytelling, Legendary Storytelling, to catalyze more productive and profitable communication and collaboration across your own organization, your partners’ and your clients’, regardless of professional disciplines, job titles, pay grades, levels of education and generations; • Poke holes in value silos based on the differentiated value of employees who solve problems differently. A storytelling culture becomes a key component of a purpose-driven human capital strategy; and • Develop more visible, relevant and valuable employees who understand how their stories, and “what they do,” are connected to “what everyone else does” in attracting and retaining partners and clients.
