Due to the circumstances related to the pandemic, ATD Hawkeye Chapter is currently hosting all events virtually via Zoom.  Our goal is to deliver the same high quality content we always offer in a safe and accessible method.  Only time will tell when we'll be able to resume in-person events, but in the meantime, take care and be well!

    Rance Greene

    An opportunity is at hand. A chance to impact the people we lead and work with. To connect, inspire, guide and persuade through everyday business storytelling. And who better to lead the way than talent development professionals? Every day. All around us. We impact the lives of people. Rance helps us to see beyond the use of stories at work as strictly a training tool (he’ll talk about that), but also as the language of humans who need connection, inspiration, guidance and persuasion. Join this session for an inspirational and practical start to a transformed workspace, where stories are always welcomed.


    You can gather additional information at the following areas:

    Professional Capability: Instructional Design


    Rance Greene formed for those who struggle with storytelling at work. His methodology—Story Design—gives leaders and talent development professionals a systematic and creative way for discovering who their audience is and how to persuade them to take action on new ideas. He’s helped leadership teams, entrepreneurs and instructional designers discover that they are uniquely equipped to tell the best story for their audiences. Rance is the author of Instructional Story Design, a practical guide for developing stories that train. He coaches, teaches, speaks and writes often on the benefits of stories to connect humans to one another.
