My response to three common objections to using stories for learning, including “Not everyone can be a storyteller.”
How do you come up with scenarios for boring training topics? Shift your focus to the people who have to make decisions or take actions.

Instead of boring “click next” compliance training, engage learners and give them a reason to seek out and understand the policies.
What if you could create compliance training that learners actually cared about? Use a worst case scenario to show the “why” behind the rules.
In stories for learning, the protagonist should be someone your learners identify with, a person with similar goals and challenges.
