Discovering your stories

Do you recognize the following situations?

  • You go on a job interview or intake interview and are quite nervous
  • You are asked to tell something about yourself and you get no further than the enumeration of facts from your resume
  • You will be asked to explain how exactly you have done something and you must pick up a situation from your past that is concrete and fits the question on the spot.
  • You wonder how you will get that one specific person into a change that you want to implement, but that person can´t be convinced with (your) facts

In the workshop (and prior homework) you get to know yourself as a person because this determines your drive and reality. From that drive and reality you create your pitch and your stories. This gives you the chance to connect with the people around you and that is applicable in any situation and at any time.

After training

  • Do you have insight into the person you are (homework)
  • Have you written a pitch about yourself (version 0.1 homework)
  • Have you become acquainted with the basis for good stories with the help of STARR
  • Do you have 1 or more own stories (version 0.1 homework)

Setup of the training

Our experienced trainers teach you the essence of making and telling a good pitch and making and telling a number of stories with the help of STARR. The training courses are hands-on and we use experiential learning. In our training you learn under realistic pressure, in real situations. Experiential learning means that you participate in simulations instead of sitting still and watching a slideshow. A thorough debrief of what happened during the exercises is an essential part of the training. During the debriefs you learn from the teacher, the other participants but especially from yourself.

    • Who am I
    • Three stories
    • Your first version of your pitch
