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.

"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 your hearing."

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.
