The Failure of Success Stories

Workshop Description:

Simply put, in the vast majority of organisations the way we collect and share success stories doesn’t work. This session looks at the reasons why and what you can do to change this. It will give some practical tips on how to use these incredibly powerful drivers of change – a mechanism that builds belief, provides concrete examples of the behaviours that lead to success and increases motivation to perform. For something this powerful in driving change, why would you now want to use it successfully in your organisation or community?

If people got the best of the session what would they leave with?

Key practical strategies on how to use success stories to create change. What are they, how do you find them and how do you best tell them.

How is this session connected to the conference theme?

Sharing success stories, when done well, can be a key intervention to drive change in organisations and communities. The challenge is that very few people do it well. This practical, interactive session will show how you can use one element of story to influence change.

About the Workshop Presenter:

Kevin Bishop has been working on the front line of making organisational change happen for over 20 years. In that time, he has specialised in using story-based techniques to understand, create and embed change, working globally with some of the world’s largest companies. For Kevin, it’s all about the practical application of story in creating and sustaining change. UK story expert Jamie Jauncey summed up Kevin nicely when he wrote; “An energetic and engaging chap in a smart suit, he had none of that whiff of the smoke-filled tepee that one sometimes associates with storytellers. Quite the opposite, everything about him suggested that he does serious work with some big global players, thank you very much.”
