Stories are the single most powerful tool in a leader’s tool kit.
-Howard Gardner 

In an increasingly complex  world, the attention of others is a precious commodity. Storytelling is a powerful tool that helps us to relate to and connect with those around us.

During this workshop, participants will learn how to:

  • Cultivate presence in various settings–one-on-one, team meetings, and presentation.
  • Incorporate framing and other communication techniques to improve clarity and connect with any audience.
  • Use the three techniques of the “metaphorical handshake” used to engage an audience.

This workshop is open to all graduate school students (PhD, MA, MFS, MLAS & MS) and postdocs. Spaces for this workshop are limited and registration is required.
