Story Inclusive Culture

Six Weeks

Storytelling has become a buzzword in educational and business contexts.

Synonymous in some circles with persuasion, it’s sought by communicators who want a reliable narrative math that can be used to Sell The Thing or Promote The Idea. And it is true that story can be used to persuade—it has been used to sell cars, start wars, and explain the movement of the stars. But it offers much, much more.

Storytelling fosters connection, respect, trust, and genuine warm rapport among colleagues. In this playful, supportive, 6-week workshop, we’ll use assignments, feedback, and fun interactive story games to explore the fundamentals of good storytelling: narrative structure, sensory detail & descriptive language, personal disclosure, humor, timing, relaxed confidence, and emotional honesty.

We will look at storytelling as a spark for community-building and connection and discover how good storytelling can enliven and humanize our pitches, presentations, and leadership.

You’ve probably heard the term Yes, And… bandied about a bit in professional trainings.

Did you know that it comes from Chicago improvisation? In this immersive, joyful, playful workshop, students will learn the authentic practice of Yes, And, as it is applied at places like The Second City, Saturday Night Live, and the many famous comedic series that have followed.

A slate of old-school Improv games allow participants to directly experience the pleasure and excitement of this ensemble-based mode of collaboration that prizes support and inclusion over competition and exclusion.
