We continue to develop customised workshops that draw on story as a medium of conveying knowledge, understanding, insight and skill. These events address business issues such as scenario planning, entrenching shared values, steering transitions, establishing an innovation culture, knowledge management, customer viewpoint elicitation, setting up project teams, building social intelligence and assertiveness.
Workshops are also designed to address personal growth issues such as overcoming limiting beliefs, becoming resilient to change, building social intelligence and charisma, developing the mindfulness habit, relating to others assertively and positively, accessing the ‘hero within’ to face challenges with confidence.
We've connected with story tellers/psychologists Susan Perry and Pamela Routledge in the USA.

“I love telling stories, and I love hearing a good story being told”
“Love stories. When you love them they open their mysteries. And much is hidden in them: all that humanity has found has been hidden in the parables. That’s why Jesus goes on talking in parables. Buddha goes on talking in stories”
Osho (The Man Who Loved Seagulls)
“Recently, I was reflecting on the companies who really capture my imagination and heart. They have in common an important ingredient for successful companies, large and small. It’s not nice packaging or a good product at a good price or passion or exceptional service – although these things are all important. It’s that they all have a company story, told well”. MP Mueller (The New York Times. Trying to Connect with Customers? Tell a Story. 17/3/2011)
