Story Telling


Through stories, leadership gaps shrink. Directives become more palatable. And organizations and individuals become more personable. Our unconventional storytelling workshops equip individuals with an advanced communication tool, incorporate presentation skills, embolden participants, and galvanize teams and individuals to recognize their potentials.

Our storytelling lab unfolds the art of storytelling, simplifying the process from beginning to end so that participants can craft purposeful dialogues that are easily appreciated and understood, a tool that can help them drive ideas forward. Listen here to understand more.

Customized story telling lab

Customized Storytelling Lab

Based on your specific company and goals, we create a customized lab that begins with an exploration of stories in business. Participants learn how to match their own situations and projects to key values that align with your organization’s objectives and identity. With the Gaines Consulting GREAT narrative tool, participants design stories, learn how to pinpoint the audience, select an appropriate voice, whittle information down to a concise missive and, ultimately, deliver a message with impact. Working collaboratively, each team member or group develops and presents one fully realized story.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Storytelling

In this multi-faceted workshop, participants first learn to use story as a technique to reflect upon their unique value for their team as individuals. Once these singular stories are developed, the group comes together to find its cooperative voice, weaving a narrative around team culture, aspirations, goals or value for the organization. Then we turn up the volume by adding local musicians to help convert each team’s story into song, a process that involves the key elements of team building— problem solving, delegation, collaboration and communication—in a challengingly new environment. When teams eventually take the stage to perform, they’ve found their collective voice. Watch how it works.
