Volunteering Auckland and UNITEC: The Power of Story with Moya Sayer-Jones

Volunteering Auckland in Partnership with UNITEC bring you … Using stories to win hearts, change minds and show outcomes.

Every organisation has great stories to tell. This workshop looks at the power of story to win hearts, change minds and strengthen connections in teams and organisations. It helps build story competence, develop story cultures, shows you how to gather and use stories effectively plus increases your ability to tell your stories so that people watch or listen right to the end.

On this interactive workshop you will learn:

The importance of stories to organisations
The difference between a case study, a testimonial and a story
How to tell a good story
How to gather stories within organisations or communities
How to use stories for evaluation, engagement and development
How to manage ethical issues when working with stories.

Participants will use a story circle process to craft a story for themselves over the course of the workshop and will get to see and hear examples of stories that worked. Case studies and examples of how not for profit organisations have used stories to demonstrate outcomes will be shared. Participants will also experience how stories can strengthen identity and connections in teams and organisations by listening and working with the stories that others tell.
