 Personal storytelling transforms communication

The personal story may be the most underutilized asset in business communication. It connects leaders to their audience, salespeople to their products, employees to their jobs and teams to each other. Personal storytelling breathes fresh life into your culture, values, and mission.

“We have had the pleasure to work with Narativ Inc., and find their unique constellation of skills to be utterly unique and completely helpful. They see issues and problems through important lenses that busy business leaders are neither tuned to nor aware of. This makes them ever more useful. I would heartily recommend them to any organization lucky enough to work with them.”
— Marc Feigen, Managing Partner, Katzenbach Partners LLC

Co-founder of Narativ and Author of Powered by Storytelling: Excavate, Craft, and Present Stories to Transform Business Communication.


Narativ has deep roots in advocacy and the application of storytelling toward social and political goals. In fact, our company’s co-founder, Murray Nossel, Ph.D., developed his listening and storytelling method in the height of the AIDS crisis in New York. Stories from his workshop played a critical role in a campaign in Albany, NY, that halted a plan to defund research for a cure. (Hear his story.) Since then, we’ve partnered with Open Society Foundations, Unicef, and other non-profit organizations, working across Africa, Europe, and the United States to assist marginalized populations in seizing their narratives. We train advocates how better to use the power of listening and storytelling in their work.

Akif Kariman shows us that advocates lead by listening. Watch six minutes of his webinar with Murray Nossel, Ph.D., from. March 6, 2019.

Really enjoying the training session that Narativ is providing our team on Storytelling today. Probably one of the most interesting sales training I’ve seen in a very long time. Bravo!
