Story is both the most ancient of communication and learning methods, and one of the hottest new areas of interest in today’s world not just as entertainment in the form of personal storytelling shows but as a communication tool in business, science and media

In this session, we will explore the power of collective storytelling to build connections and create new insights.  Through a gently facilitated process, we will uncover a topic of common interest and then discover and share stories. These stories will collectively birth new insights into our topic, while the process of telling and receiving the stories will build the group in unique ways. Unlike most common problem-solving or dialogue methods, the use of story allows participants to share foundational experiences without the haze of prior interpretation and advocacy clouding the message. And the chance to tap one’s own inner wisdom – as opposed to seeking answers from outside experts – enhances the individual and the collective.
In addition to story sharing, additional methods and mindsets drawn from the world of applied improvisation will be used to set context, warm up the group, and generate ideas.
