From core competency self-assessment to emotional intelligence, the program covered a wide range of areas of utmost importance to one’s successful career management process. Having said that, NOVA invited me to shed light on the power of stories to leverage their students’ personal brand. The workshop was based on the following agenda:
1) sharing my personal story as an introductory case-study;
2) defining what storytelling is; its importance and real-life applications;
3) discussing the 4 main principles of telling a good story;
4) carrying individual and group exercises to apply the acquired knowledge.
In this scenario, participants were given an overview of storytelling’s powerful benefits to leverage their personal brand. Moreover, they were encouraged to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses, shaped by their life events and in line with recruiters’ most valued skills.
When you see everyone sharing their stories and learning from them, it feels like paradise running through your bloody veins.
