Find Your Storyteller Type
No two storytellers are the same. As is the case with athletes and artists, we all have natural strengths and personal strivings and David will teach you how to leverage both in your telling. Some storytellers are most effective in their honesty, some are grounded in a particular emotion, others are gifted with metaphor, while still others are best served by urgency or a need to reform their listeners. Finding your storytelling type will transform your communication and strengthen your effectiveness with listeners.
Understanding Listening Types
Who are you talking to? How do they listen? Are they wanting more detail, more emotion, more action, or more security? David will teach you the four basic listening types and how to craft your telling to attract and maintain their attention. If your telling is intended for a specific individual (perhaps your child or partner) David will help you identify which listening type they are and how to best connect and communicate with them.
Creating a Master Story
Every individual and every group has a master story that gives context to their motivations, behavior and understanding of the world. Master stories are the fundamental filter through which people and communities make sense of their lives - and identifying one’s own master story - or a particular community’s master story - will give you the key to being able to connect, empathize and then motivate anyone. By discovering key images, narratives and “magic words”, you will be empowered to reach your listeners and invite them into transformation.
