Storyfinding, Storymaking, and Storytelling
In a design thinking workshop, you will be guided through collaborative reflection activities to help you find your own stories and then build them into something you can storytell in your own work. Use storytelling to build empathy and connect with the head and the heart. Tell stories to communicate data, ideas, innovations or even the vision for transformation as a leader.
Engage participants in applying design thinking approaches like ideation and rapid prototyping to build, tell, and test important stories for themselves. Participants will leave the workshop with a number of story ideas as well as stories they have storyboarded and tested out on participants. They can iterate on these stories which will be ready to share with their colleagues the next day.
The stories you will create, hear and tell at our session can contribute to a deeper connection to purpose, vision, or transformation for you, your organization, and those you help.
