9:00am - 12:00pm

Quail Creek Golf and Country Club, Oklahoma City

Presented by Lee Manzer, Ph.D. | There has never been a society that did not use the telling of stories to establish its culture. Within organizations, storytelling is also a valuable technique to create and maintain "culture" while motivating employees. Additionally stories are used to resolve conflict and to generate customer "evangelists." How do corporate "stories" impact culture and therefore the employee? How do stories motivate the individual employee? Can corporate stories be "captured" and directed? Can managers improve their ability to relate ideas through stories? These and other interesting concepts of storytelling are the focus of this seminar.
