other hand, Joe doesn’t want to let any of them down, yet he’s finding that each has a different way of working and a different set of expectations of him.
That’s a lot to juggle.
What is Joe to do? How can he manage so many preferences, styles, and deadlines, and still stand out to each of his supervisors?
Let’s stop here and shift gears.
Can you picture Joe?
Are you drawn in by his story?
Are you curious where this is going?
And what Joe will do to address these challenges?
If so, that’s exactly the point.
Storytelling can be a powerful tool to engage adult learners, both in the classroom and in your on-demand learning programs. Scenarios such as these provide valuable context, introduce a character that learners can relate to, and create a sense of curiosity around where the story is going and how it will end.
Because they are drawn in and pay attention, it also increases their retention of the story and the lessons woven within it.
This scenario is part of an e-learning program we created on Making the Most of Working with Multiple Supervisors, one of the many professional skills programs – of 15 minutes or less – available as part of our Professional Essentials series.
