About this course
A short and interactive introduction into Storytelling and its application in the business environment. What are the origins of storytelling and what is its scientific foundation. How storytelling can be used to manage conflicts, interpret the past and to shape the future. Story is one of the primary mediums through which humans communicate and make sense of the world.
