Storytelling For Leaders And Managers Course in Singapore
All leaders and managers have something in common whether they are small retail store managers, fast food chain supervisors, or, well-known CEOs. They all have to talk to, explain, and, inspire their members to do excellently at their job. Lack of it and everything could go downhill. Something most businesses can’t afford and shouldn’t take the risk of doing.
Storytelling presents a very significant function in leadership. People can’t just be told to be more motivated or be more creative, and then, they do it. There needs to be a person they can look up to and resemble. A role model is wanted to show them what it means to be motivated, creative, and, excellent. Leaders and managers should know how to weave their’s and the company’s message into relatable and understandable stories. Their words will embody the changes and the visions the company is seeking from its employees. They can establish credibility, authenticity, creativity, motivation, and, transformation. Consistently arguing, unprofessionally, with employees does not only cause you a great deal of stress but, will cause you to lose their confidence as well.
