The intentions of compliance training are very good. They save lives and protect assets. BUT - Compliance courses are well-known to be dry, boring, hard to follow,  too full of legalese and often overly technical.  "Section 1078b of the code requires that you do so and so."  No wonder they don't resonate with us!  People are social animals.  Don't we connect with other people and their experiences better than rules and regs?

How would your learners' minds engage with a lesson that starts "John lost his right arm due to an explosion" or "Food poisoning brought down Chipotle's sales"?  Emotional, impactful stories make it easier for learners to quickly relate to the point of compliance rules and accept them. 

The challenge is to understand how to create and select the right stories and how to present them to be effective in achieving the goals of your compliance training. In this webinar you will learn:
  • How to select short and engaging stories to replace boring compliance lessons
  • How to convert compliance legalese into easy-to-understand stories and experiences
  • The step-by-step structure of effective story-based compliance lessons
  • How to use story-based compliance lessons to meet regulatory reporting rules
