The Art of WorkLife Storytelling

Learn To Craft Your Unique Stories

The stories we tell enable us to get our sense of character across in a meaningful and truthful way. Stories that demonstrate what we stand for and what we stand against. Stories in which we share our values and our beliefs, our thinking and our ideas, our individuality and our uniqueness. Stories that enable us to speak our truth because we are telling stories that matter to us.

The Art of WorkLife Storytelling  is a series of lessons designed to help you find, develop and tell the right story at the right time in all WorkLife situations – in day-to-day communication: WorkLife and feedback conversations, presentations, talks, and negotiations, at interviews, and when socialising and networking in building and maintaining good relationships. You will learn to tell the stories that express who you are in an interesting and engaging way.

Each individual lesson is for single use only. Please do not distribute or share in any format. This helps me to honour my commitment to create WorkLife learning resources that are accessible to everyone – that reflect the value at a fair price to all – individuals who are responsible for their own learning, companies who want to invest in the learning of their people, and me as the creator. 

The Story Behind The Art of WorkLife Storytelling Series

I acquired storytelling tools the way most writers do: by reading books and writing my own books. At the time I started this series, I had published 30 books, 100s of stories and lessons and a series of case studies.

Because the lessons involve a lot of nuts and bolts guidance, the stories I share as case studies are based on real WorkLife challenges, obstacles, failures and successes.

We are all storytelling creatures. Whether we’re penning a novel or talking to a friend, we’re using the same tools to form a connection with people.

I share the tools I use to build my own stories – from research to determining the story’s main themes, to character and plot development, to creating suspense, conflict, action, and more. I demonstrate how I use these tools to serve the specific goal of keeping audiences engaged. 

In the lessons, I hope to unlock a toolbox of ideas that you can use immediately as you write and tell your own stories. My sincerest hope is that the lessons inspire in you a passion for the writing process as well as the confidence to master your own personal voice by exploring your ideas and weaving them into stories that are distinctly your own that you will share with your audience. 

That’s important because, in the words of *Professor Patrick Winston: “Your success in life will be determined largely by your ability to speak, your ability to write, and the quality of your ideas.”

*Professor Patrick Winston was the director of MIT’s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. He led CSAIL’s Genesis Group, which focussed on developing AI systems that have humanlike intelligence, including the ability to tell, perceive, and comprehend stories. You can learn more about his story here.
