    21st Century Skills: Transformative Storytelling

    If you want to tell more engaging and compelling stories in the workplace and beyond, this 2-hour participatory class is for you.

    Storytelling is in our DNA. We create stories everyday to make sense of our world. Stories shape our memories and relationships. Stories breathe life into our shared reality, and galvanize shared visions. A great story, well presented, can move mountains. We can develop this innate ability to tell stories that move others.

    We'll explore storytelling as a spontaneous act of self-expression and sense-making. Then we'll practice telling stories collaboratively and individually, using interactive and improvisational techniques.

    You get the opportunity to hone and improve a real-world story you bring to the workshop, coached by a seasoned interactive consultant and a professional improviser. This is a limited size class, and you will not be asked to "perform."
