Since time immortal, humans have absorbed information and wisdom from others by means of stories. Whether sitting around the campfire, planning a battle, or jockeying in the board room, stories wield the power to influence our thoughts and emotions in ways that logic and facts rarely can. In this course, we explore the fundamentals of storytelling as it applies to communication in the corporate context. Students learn to synthesize what they have to say and articulate it in the right sequence for their audience to understand.

I now understand the management’s point of view and I keep my communication short and crisp. I also got appreciation from the onsite manager for the same. The topics like thought anchoring are immensely helpful in preparation of presentations.
