...And Then, There Are Stories: Bringing Story-telling Center Stage in Training

Friday, February 5, 2016 / 11:45am - 12:45pm
Facilitator: Rance Greene / Health Care Service Corporation

Let the story-telling continue! For thousands of years, stories have been the centerpiece of teaching. Increase retention and engagement. Eliminate dread. Stories are your best weapon to bust boredom and raise the roof on effectiveness. Come see what HCSC’s Ethics & Compliance Department has done to make required compliance training something employees actually look forward to taking. Rance will be sharing stories they’ve used, discussing their application in training and offering some story-telling design and delivery tips that have made their courses award-winning models of effective training. Examples will include a variety of delivery methods, including live, computer-based, virtual and blended techniques. Regardless of the industry or training topic, the stories, open discussion and practical tips will inspire you to bring story-telling center stage in your training and help you craft your own training stories.

Why do you want to attend the January Lunch & Learn SIG meeting?


Because…  You will learn principles that work from the best-selling book, Five Dysfunctions of a Team.

Because… A cohesive team will:

  • ·         Make better, faster decisions as people are aligned and on-board
  • ·         Leverage the skills, talents and opinions of all team members
  • ·         Ensure conflict becomes productive and healthy versus draining and damaging
  • ·         Focus on the results versus self-interest and politics
  • ·         Create a competitive advantage and sets your organization apart
  • ·         Eventually become “A Best Place to Work”


Join us for this interactive, engaging SIG where we will explore the behaviors that create a high performing team, give you practices to bring to your own organization and insight as to why this concept has been embraced and widely accepted around the world.
