Understanding who you are and what stories you tell the world dramatically affects the way that you present yourself at work and at home. Whether you're interviewing for a job, leading a meeting, giving a speech, or you want to communicate more effectively with friends and family, aligning your unique personality with your goals is the first step on the path to confident self-expression.
This workshop will explore the difference between story and narrative, the many ways by which we tell stories, and how to apply narrative techniques to your life or career through interactive exercises.
