About the course
What is your experience of persuading people to change, adopt a new mindset, buy a product, or simply see your point of view? Many people try to do so by explaining the rationale and selling benefits, often armed with supporting data. While important, logical analysis and objective data rarely inspire or connect with people. Sharing purposeful stories is a powerful way to connect with people emotionally, capturing their imagination and making things real in a way that hard facts cannot.
