Through stories, leadership gaps shrink. Directives become more palatable. And organizations and individuals become more relatable. 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.

Storytelling is ideal for:

  • Team building
  • Onboarding new hires
  • Brand building

Customized Storytelling Lab

Based on your specific company and goals, we create a customized lab that begins with the applications of story 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 memorable message. Working collaboratively, each team member or group develops and presents one fully realized story.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Storytelling

In this multifaceted workshop, participants first learn to use story as a technique to reflect on their unique value for their team as individuals. Once these singular stories are developed, the group comes together to find its collective voice, weaving a narrative around team culture, aspirations, goals, or value for the organization. Then we turn up the volume by adding lo 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 a new voice. Watch how our storytelling program works.
