Intentional Storytelling

We teach intentional storytelling where people will learn how to tell stories improvisationally by being resourceful and using the power of spontaneity. Our approach teaches participants to trust the story and speak extemporaneously from the heart.

You’ll get a chance to learn about story structure, the power of presence, the differences between writing and telling, and how to find the story that you need to tell.

Led by professional storytellers, our workshops aim to help build a culture of empathy, leadership and improved communication skills.  Above all, this is a fun opportunity to tap into an art form that has been part of the human experience since the beginning.

Approach

We will arrive at your facility to deliver this session. Typically, three facilitators will lead the workshop.

This is a dynamic, interactive experience for everyone.  We will outline the primary components of effective storytelling, and some tools for discovering and delivering story in a compelling way. The skills we teach are experiential and not something that can be quantified in statistics. We find that people who open themselves to discover what matters to them and are willing to express that through their own personal story are transformed by the experience.

Our Philisophy

We believe that everyone has a story to tell but the key to being a great storyteller is to learn how to listen.  Not only to others but to yourself.  We are working to use the art of storytelling to make arts and culture a recognized, valued and expected facet of everyday life in both private and public spheres.
