You’ve heard storytelling is a powerful way to engage an audience and capture their attention. But storytelling for business training? Yes, storytelling can be used for many purposes – but as part of a business training program is incredibly effective. Here are three reasons why storytelling should be considered when developing your next learning program:
1) Participants can put themselves in the story and explore what is happening. It provides them with a way to visualize the steps that they will be taking during training. They have several opportunities for reflection and dig deeper into their motivations for change.
2) The stories provide insights into how others have succeeded or failed
3) Stories help make complex ideas easier to understand and remember
Storytelling is a powerful way to train employees because it can be tailored to your organization’s needs. It is also a non-conventional way of teaching that doesn’t bore and keep participants imagining and thinking.
