Team Leadership: Telling Your Testing Stories

It used to be that your work and results spoke for themselves. No longer is that the case. Today you need to be a better collaborator, communicator, and facilitator so that you focus your teams on delivering value. Join Bob Galen to explore the power of the story, one of the most effective communication paradigms. You can tell stories that create powerful collaboration. You can tell stories that communicate product requirements and customer needs. You can tell stories that inspire teams to deliver results. And you can tell stories that explain your value and successes to your customers and stakeholders. Explore basic storytelling techniques, specific techniques for framing stories for software testing activities, and test leadership storytelling that energizes and guides your teams. Take time to practice telling your stories—and become a much better storyteller and leader within your testing efforts.
