“If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive.”
Barry Lopez, Crow and Weasel
Out of all the workshops I teach worldwide, “Creating the Executive Storyteller” is, far and away, the most demanded. As humans, we are wired to learn through story: 40,000 years ago, before we had anything resembling language, our forebears told stories to each other by drawing on cave walls with ochre, ash, and blood.
Today, everyone has a compelling story to tell, but most organizations fall short of telling them well. Why? Because storytelling is a craft, but like any craft, it must be practiced and coached. But it can be learned.
Do you have a story to tell? Of course, you do. Contact me—I’ll help you tell it.
