In Lesson 1, you experienced STORY DESIGNED TRAINING
WHY DO STORIES WORK SO WELL FOR TRAINING?
Stories are action
STORY DESIGN FILLS THE GAP It connects the action of your audience to the action of the story.
RELATABLE CHARACTERS + STRONG CONFLICT Let's examine each of these story elements separately.
RELATABLE CHARACTERS **Draw from what you know about your audience to create relatable characters. **
STRONG CONFLICT **Put characters in strong conflict with the action you want your audience to take. **
WHAT HAPPENS **when you pair relatable characters with strong conflict? **
A DESIRE FOR RESOLUTION! **Your audience wants to resolve the conflict. **
WHAT PROVIDES RESOLUTION?
TRAINING! **Give the learner the opportunity to reflect and self-discover. Also, keep the STORY alive in training. **
YOUR AUDIENCE IS READY TO ACT! THE STORY DESIGN MODEL makes it possible!
