The Power of Storytelling

Objective: Selling or leading through storytelling In this program, Ty teaches the art of storytelling as a key communication and sales strategy. He provides attendees with the mindset, skill set and toolset to sell effectively through storytelling.

People love stories. More importantly, stories engage emotion which prompts people to respond, take action or buy your products.

We are all in the people business. We are all communicators. We are all involved in selling products, services, ideas. Storytelling is the most influential form of communication because we’re all emotional creatures.

We’ve heard the saying: “people buy based on emotion.” The truth is people take action based on emotion. The underlying principle behind storytelling is that it’s not about you; it’s about the other person. Showing them how your story impacts them and how it pertains to their life creates an influential impact in the sales decision.

Ty’s Key Messages:

  • Humanize your message: make a human connection instead of trying to sell your product
  • Create the balance between credibility and relatability: buy into the idea that business is about relationships
  • Engage the emotional, creative side of the brain: people buy from you because they know and trust you; let them in so they like and trust you
  • Begin a conversation…not about you, about them: ask specifically you-focused questions
  • Tell the story: everybody struggles with the same challenges…hook them with a struggle and you help them with a solution.

Learning Outcomes:

  • The science of storytelling
  • The 5 places to use stories

Available as a Keynote (45 – 90 minutes) and an In-Depth Workshop (additional 120 minutes) “I want to tell you about a recent success I had with a public presentation. I was asked to give a speech to a group of high school scholarship students about a week ago, and I didn’t know anyone in the room. As you might recall, that’s always been tough for me to handle. Not going to lie: I was nervous beforehand – fast heart rate, buzzing in my ears – the usual, basically. But this time I killed it. I was much more confident once I got up on the stage. I knew what I could rely on to engage the audience, and I could hear your encouragement and reminders in my head as I spoke. And despite being nervous, I did believe that I had the skills to get it done. I could see so much more clearly that the audience was connecting with me. I absolutely owe that to our training session together. That boost of confidence from the training is what I really needed. Thanks again!” Janet Benoit, National Restaurant Association
