Using stories to retain and keep alive retiring employees’ knowledge

I should have mentioned this earlier but this Friday (23rd February) I will be presenting a workshop in Sydney on how to use stories to retain and keep alive retiring employees’ knowledge. It will be a practical session where the participants will have fun crafting questions to elicit stories, conduct interviews, facilitate anecdote circles and then use a couple techniques to help make sense of the stories. Communities of practice will feature.

The two key messages I’m hoping to convey in the workshop are:

  • communities keep stories alive
  • lessons from a few stories collected once are fun and interesting; lessons from many stories reviewed widely and regularly nurtures wisdom

This workshop is a post-conference event for Extracting and Sharing Knowledge from an Ageing Workforce conference. To receive a full copy of the brochure for this event please email Louise at louise.badcock@keyforums.com.au or call on +61 2 9436 4255.
