SYNOPSIS

COVERED drills into every construction worker's core desires – get home to loved ones safe each night while avoiding mistakes that injure co-workers. Drew’s first day on the job finds him caught between his foreman’s demand to do things correctly and the prevailing “wisdom” of a grizzled veteran who completes tasks with “common sense” shortcuts. It’s a battle over the right way versus right now, where lives hang in the balance.

According to a study by Dr. Mitch Ricketts, Professor of Behavioral Psychology:

"People tend to change their safety-related behavior after hearing compelling stories..."

Neurosciences shows story is the best vehicle for delivering a message that impacts behavior.

HOW STORY CHANGES THE BRAIN

NEUROCHEMICAL EFFECT

A well told story activates neurochemicals responsible for memory and releases the “empathy” chemical - which influences actions and increases motivation.

THEORY OF MIND

The imaginary world serves as a proving ground for vital social skills, becoming a “flight simulator” for real life situations.

SENSORY CORTEX

FMRI machines have shown that brains on story look similar to participants in the action, not spectators. Experience is the best teacher.

MIRROR NEURONS

Observing an action activates the same part of the brain that lights up when physically experiencing the action.

NARRATIVE TRANSPORT

Properly structured stories focus viewer attention and inextricably tie their emotions to the characters, which leads the viewer to internalize the story’s lessons.

EMOTION vs LOGIC

"Stories are the most effective structure to share information, connect people emotionally to a cause and build commitment"

TESTIMONIALS

"Story-based interventions can lead to important and lasting changes in behavior."

Dr. Rickett's research revealed workers "exposed to story-based warnings made about 20% fewer safety related assembly errors, compared with teams exposed to equivalent non-narrative warnings."
