Transforming Experiences Into Stories
August 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
What you’ve learned from your experiences continues to shape your life and influence your decisions. By sharing what you’ve learned while facilitating or working with clients or peers, others can learn from your stories and may be more willing to share their own lessons. But how do you create a compelling story out of a few memories and anecdotes?
In this session, we’ll apply the theories from the book StoryTraining: Selecting and Shaping Stories That Connect to transform an experience into a lesson, and then into a story that facilitates connections between the facilitator, the learners, and the material. You’ll walk away from this session with templates and strategies that you can apply back on the job.
By the end of this session, you’ll know how to:
· Mine your memories for experiences.
· Identify a few key lessons from your experiences that will benefit others.
· Construct a story based on your lessons that will clarify your message and also encourage learners, clients, and peers to share their own stories.
