For many human resources department, it can be seen as a boring place to work. But it may be the contact point that can make any person deliver the highest possible results to their organization. Storytelling is something that has been based on generation to generation and with quite effective results. Storytelling generally is a good method of communicating information. Or simply to educate the audience and to teach a lesson. Storytelling is important to help to grow our imagination and take us out of our comfort zones, whether with the help of a VR company or not.
For a Human Resource department, storytelling is so important. If you prepare a strong HR presentation with a good story you can convey many powerful messages in a short period of time. First, let’s look at how we can improve in our HR story telling. The person who will create the storyline will have to study their audience. We need to consider which level of management of staff will be present to listen to our story. And you need to prepare according to that.
If you can speak to your audience with the language they speak (specific departments) they will be able to grab the contents sooner than you think. One of easiest and most effective method of delivering the HR story is to stick with the rule of three which is HOW, WHAT and WHY? With these simple rules, you can directly arrive at the conclusion and effectively deliver your message.
It is very important to be relevant. No matter how long or how technical is your storytelling going to be if you aren’t creative and relevant on your topics the audience will fail to understand what any of your content has to do with the modern world. And another key factor is to add fact into to your storytelling. Facts make is much easier to convince the audience about your point.
Because of facts, it helps you to create a depth and a seriousness of the message you are trying to convey, which is an area that a leading VR company can add innovation to.
It is very important to be imaginative and creative. Always show the audience what the future might look like in both good and bad scenarios. You must create creative storytelling to make your audience to buy your story. For you be successful always make very easy to understand English or the language you have chosen. You may have a lot of content with many technical phrases however many will feel bored if it happens way too often.
Keeping it relatively short is something very important because this will not make you lose your audience attention. Generally, a highly successful storytelling show like TED talks runs maximum up to 15 minutes. And you can clearly see the results of it. A story without pictures can become very boring. So, make sure to include any pictures you may find interesting or will make the audience laugh just break the ice.
After many factual presentations, it is important that you end your presentation with a nice and a heartful or sometimes a funny story that will deliver the powerful message. This will suddenly wake up any person who was yawning during the presentation and you will be able to convey your strong message. So, think out of the box and learn the art of creative HR storytelling.
