Interactive Storytelling

Here’s another video segment in our series, Take Five with Thiagi.

In this series, Thiagi discusses performance improvement principles and procedures in about 5 minutes.

In this month's segment, Thiagi recounts his experiences in mesmerizing participants with stories—only to realize that they do not remember the learning point or apply the new principles they learned. Thiagi continues by explaining how he applied an interactive approach that involves the participants co-creating their own stories and sharing them with each other. In addition, when Thiagi tells a story, the participants actively analyze it, critically evaluate it, and reflectively discuss the lessons learned from it. Sometimes they shrink the story or expand it. They change the ending, the setting, or the characters.  In short, the participants interact with the story to learn more and to apply what they learned.
