Book Summary : Tales for Trainers
The power of storytelling has been known for thousands of years. In a period when organizations and individuals are searching for effective, inexpensive, longer lasting and increasingly sophisticated ways of helping people to learn, the age-old tradition of using storytelling to reinforce messages is rapidly gaining ground.

Margaret Parkin’s guide to using stories, anecdotes, metaphors and poetry in training and development is packed with ideas to give training more impact. Beginning by setting the use of stories in learning on a sound theoretical footing, the book goes on to include sample stories that trainers can read aloud. Echoing the successful story-based approach of Chicken Soup for the Soul, etc, the author provides 50 tales that will immediately help trainers, managers, educator and coaches to reinforce key messages or stimulate fresh thinking. Proven to work in a variety of training environments the stories themselves range from ones written specifically by the author to carefully selected extracts from literature (everything from Lewis Carroll to James Thurber). The linking factor in all of the stories is that they each work brilliantly as an aid to learning.

Complete with a detailed matrix showing which tales can effectively be used to promote particular actions or concepts (communication, leadership, problem solving, dealing with change, etc), this radical and ground-breaking book is sure to change the way you help others to learn.
