"Training for The Storyteller" is focused on developing the Person telling the Story.
A small cohort with a maximum of 12 people will work together and one-on-one with David to transform the way they use their body and voice. They will achieve the "Rock-Plant" mode of storytelling that David describes in the video below.
Learning Outcomes of "Training for The Storyteller" include:
The ability to enter a state of calm presence whenever you choose. A feeling of belonging wherever you go.
Accessing delight and positivity with any situation. Ability to see an opportunity and keep a steady and satisfying energy that can extinguish stress and despair.
Develop and use a navigation tool to help with decisions large and small.
Develop a “sense” with rooms of individuals and be able to meet them where they are.
Access deep wisdom and trust in the moment. No more fretting or mulling, become the person who can make decisions on the spot, and make the right ones.
