The power of persuasion…it’s the key to convincing clients to buy your products or services. It’s the key to convincing your boss or your team to support an idea. Despite knowing its importance, most people struggle with how to communicate in a persuasive way and end up with boring power point slides and facts. So how do you inspire and connect? The simple answer is storytelling…more importantly, telling a compelling story!
Every department can benefit from better persuasion skills, but storytelling is particularly valuable for sales, customer service and business development teams. The Creative Experience’s storytelling training can be customized to a half day, full day or two day corporate training session.
In this training session, we use video clips, movies and short films as the foundation for how to create an emotional – and authentic – connection with your clients. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to persuade clients to support your intended call to action.
Using storytelling discovery process in three acts, we will share how to set three stages:
Act 1: The Beginning / Set Up: Hook your Audience with Emotion
Act 2: The Middle / Climax: Gain the Biggest Impact
Act 3: The Resolution / Conclusion: Satisfy with a Happy Ending
With the newfound storytelling confidence, sales professionals will be ready to increase new sales and improve existing customer relationships. Purposeful storytelling will help meet sales goals and deliver real results.
