Bring curiosity and powerful listening to find your stories, learn what they mean & do, & what more they could!
There are many people wanting to work with you on storytelling, but they don’t bring a research and analytical approach. I combine sociolinguistics, improvisation, and ethnography to focus on what your stories DO. Language does things in social interaction - particularly stories, which often are hiding in plain sight. Therefore, my approach starts with story finding. Long before we even think about storytelling, we bring attention and curiosity to story listening. Working with me will help you understand the contexts of your stories to ensure they are doing everything you want, and not what you don’t. Ultimately, adopting this story approach will set you on a path of story triggering, reminding you that stories are everywhere, just waiting to work for you.
Whether you want to:
enhance communication at and about work (Story listening, finding, and telling)
explore career paths & tell professional stories that connect with potential partners and employers (Career Linguist)
apply story as a research tool for navigating organizational culture (Talking Business)
I am excited to work with you to create stories that resonate and that get remembered!
