Change Your Training Narrative

As a trainer, you try to facilitate connections for learners, knowing you must first make connections for yourself. One way to do that is to be a storyteller. But how do you tell stories? How do you find stories to tell? StoryTraining: Selecting and Shaping Stories That Connect explores how to find your stories and deliver them for learners, ultimately strengthening the storyteller you already are.

The challenge with storytelling, according to author Hadiya Nuriddin, is in finding a story to tell. This book focuses on that elusive part of storytelling—finding the stories lurking everywhere and telling them. Hadiya shows you how by pulling from other disciplines, especially literature and creative writing, to help you select, structure, shape, and tell stories that can facilitate connections between you, your learners, and the material. You’ll learn about the characteristics of stories that are most useful for facilitating learning, and understand what each looks like in practice. StoryTraining also includes helpful checklists as well as the author’s surefire tips, diagrams for story timelining, and favorite story models.

Given the push to make training more relevant, storytelling ability will continue to be in high demand. If you yearn to find your own stories—and to successfully engage with learners and others—this is the facilitation book you have been waiting for.

I am new to ATD, but not with training. I am enlarging my tent. I train EHR software to health care providers. I want to learn elearning, however I do not know where to start. I tell stories when I am instructing. So I am looking forward to how you execute this learning strategy.
Hey Sandra,
I've found the following website to be super helpful to explore eLearning: https://elearningindustry.com/
Stories are amazing tools to wrap concepts in. eLearning is an excellent tool as well. As you read Hadiya's book, perhaps you could consider how you would use stories in the context of eLearning delivery. Both of these tools are effective only when employed with solid pedagogy (andragogy, if you prefer).
I hope I get the chance to read this book! It looks great :)
