Personal Storytelling for Business
We help companies activate behavioral change from the inside out
The human brain is hard wired for story. Scientific studies show us that we remember stories more than data, statistics, and numbers.
At Narativ, we help you leverage the power of storytelling with our business storytelling training programs, one-on-one coaching, and virtual workshops for sales, team building, leadership development and onboarding.

“As leaders, the personal stories that we have in our own lives help inform why we do the work we do. The workshop led to one of the best speaking experiences I’ve ever had.”

“Narativ’s training shapes the role for our new team members. Then once they go on the road, they have some of my knowledge in their brain.”

“Storytelling can enhance working relationships by removing preconceptions or misunderstandings. Like storytelling, listening is an art that takes practice.”
Vice President of Business Solutions, Ingo Money
“When you’re building a relationship, the story is the best tool. Since working with Narativ, I now use stories to differentiate myself from the ‘typical sales guy’.”
Head of Card Programs, Q2 Open
“Storytelling bridges a gap in a historically automated process. I learned that you have to listen so that your story can evolve in a way that relates to what you’re hearing.”
Chief Business Officer of US Advertising and Revenue, Condé Nast
“I learned that stories lead to empathy, which I think is the ultimate gateway for people to work together collaboratively.”

The Essential Guide to Selling by Telling Your Touchstone Story
Our Process and How it Works
The Narativ Method
The Narativ method consists of three stages: excavate, craft and present. Our training begins with the question, “Why story? Why now?” as the entree into the excavation process that enables you and your team to take a deeper look at your audience, your listening skills and how to identify obstacles to listening.
Why is listening so important to storytelling?
At the very heart of it all is a principle known as the reciprocal relationship of listening and telling. How we listen affects how a story is told. Conversely, how a story is told impacts and changes our listening. This is the principle that differentiates the Narativ Method from other storytelling techniques.
