Stories and storytelling help weave individuals together into communities. In an age of information overload, stories help unite multiple ideas and emotions and communicate directly to the imagination and to the intellect. As well, stories can foster understanding and healing among disparate individuals and groups.

This experiential workshop will provide a number of stories and working examples to help participants better understand, find, and develop stories for a variety of professional contexts.  

Whether telling stories in a boardroom or classroom, facilitating small groups or counseling a client, participants will learn methods for bringing personal and traditional stories to life and developing a storytelling approach geared toward engaging communication and facilitation.
