Storytelling is a powerful way to make a point, especially when the stories are compelling, well constructed, and poignant. "Stories Trainers Tell" captures thought-provoking stories contributed by trainers, nationally known speakers, consultants, business leaders, and professional storytellers that help make challenging ideas and abstract concepts more memorable, even unforgettable.

Learn to use storytelling to make your point and motivate your people. The stories are organized around major organization development themes, such as leadership, diversity, teamwork, performance and coaching, and customer service. Accompanying each story are tips and techniques for maximizing its impact and learning potential.
