Storytelling for Leaders: How to Craft Stories That Matter
ABOUT THIS CLASS
Stories are everywhere. As a leader, it’s up to you to communicate meaningfully about your work and your aspirations. Whether it’s for marketing materials, a client presentation, a unifying story to fire up your team, an investor pitch, or simply a story about you as a person — this 25-minute class with the founder of SYPartners, Keith Yamashita, will teach you how to craft a compelling story that matters to your audience.
Keith draws on years of experience helping Fortune 100 companies tell their brand stories, and has developed it into a structure that anyone can use and benefit from.
He walks you through the types of stories that leaders need to tell, the components of a great story, the archetypes involved, key methods for crafting and refining your story. You don’t need any prior experience to take this class. But if you’ve ever been moved by a story — and we know you have — you’ll want to remember that feeling and search for it in the creation of your own.
