You’re Getting the Team Together …
How to inspire them?
Many companies hire a motivational speaker or a trainer for their company get-together. Each has limitations.
The motivational speaker may entertain and provide a short-term spike in enthusiasm but behavioural science authors, such as Daniel Pink in his bestseller Drive, cite studies that expose this type of motivation as short-lived and potentially counter-productive. Especially when your people perform complex tasks.
Its more effective to focus on intrinsic motivation for knowledge workers. That’s motivation derived from achievement, belonging and purpose.
The traditional skills trainer may satisfy the need for achievement and mastery but studies show that short-term group skills training sessions are mostly forgotten within a few days of the training and its not easy to find a program for a diverse audience that suits everyone.
Storytelling for Corporate Events
Story talks and story workshops avoid the pitfalls of both the motivational speech and the skill trainer. We can inspire your team and instil purpose using your own company stories, while teaching them a new skill. That’s because stories are inherently memorable so the messages from a story event will endure.
Furthermore a storytelling team event is an opportunity to share Values Stories [See box article]. Far more persuasive than company mission or values statements, values stories are stories of when your company leaders demonstrated, by their actions, the values that your company holds as true and important.
Values stories inspire your staff, partners and customers and bind them to you. A staff conference is the ideal opportunity to reflect on and tell your values stories.
