The use of story telling has been used throughout the ages. In every culture they can be found, they describe where we came from, what we believe, who we are. When used in a compelling and mesmerising way they can be the most memorable ways of teaching today just as they were thousands of years ago. When looking back in history through to today the most successful stories were from life experiences. Likewise today trainers can do the same and make use of their own personal stories.
Telling Personal Stories
When asked, almost all participants will readily agree that the storytelling and activities were the most liked throughout their training. Storytelling allows each individual relate and identify in their own way to what is being said. They make a lasting impact; they inspire, evoke feelings and creates a bond with the audience because it describe a common human experience. People enjoy hearing real life experiences as they bring the session to life and lend credibility to the information given.
