We all recognize that a good story can be the most effective way to make our points with clients. But it’s not always easy to find the right story, pare it to the right length (read: short!), tell it dramatically, and make sure the client gets it. The point of telling stories, of course, is to lodge important ideas and persuasive messages with clients. Stories are a way of making ideas memorable––and new recommendations feasible––for clients. In this course, join Gary Duke as he reviews a simple process for incorporating effective stories into your everyday conversations, and in more formal presentations.
