A 7-Part Workshop to Enhance Your 7 Powers of Story
Led and facilitated by
CEO, StoryWork International
How do we develop and sustain our human spirit? How do we develop our skills as leaders to help people imagine, embrace, and actualize a new future?
In our work, we see “story” as the hidden language of the imagination. Those who can master both the science and art of story will become the next generation of masterful leaders that the world desperately needs. In this program, we’ll introduce you to the 7 Powers of Story and how to effectively draw upon these powers to become a formidable, persuasive leader who can effectively engage communities to embrace the changes we need to make to create a more sustainable world.
The 7-Part Master Class
Over 7 successive weeks, you will have an opportunity to gather around a metaphorical fire to expand your Story Intelligence. In each 2-hour interactive session housed on NYOUGENE, YOUTOPIAN's new Omnichannel Learning Platform, there will be short lectures, engaging exercises, opportunities to explore each power of story through immersive VR, and interactive learning and sharing within smaller groups. The curriculum of this Master Class will be comprised of these 7 Topics:
1. The Power of Story to Transport
2. The Power of Story to Communicate
3. The Power of Story to Enable Learning
4. The Power of Story to Create Meaning
5. The Power of Story to Transform
6. The Power of Story to Unite
7. The Power of Story to Envision Possibilities
Each participant will receive a Custom Workbook especially designed for this program.
More details on this innovative curriculum will be available in late May, 2021. Reserve your seat below.
This was a fascinating adventure through the power of story, something that only Richard could take us through. There is plenty of talk going on now about finding your authentic voice, but he is the one who provides the environment necessary to actually finding it. These seven weeks have been a breathtaking journey of discovery, friendship, and love for the human potential. Understanding the power of story makes you aware that there is a lot we can all do together. It felt like traveling through time and history, to a place where past, present, and future blend together to open up all possibilities of our human experience. If I had to use only one word for the power of story, I would choose awesome.
Richard is very adept at setting a lively pace (and telling compelling stories!) to keep participants engaged, with thoughtful break-out sessions that helped us develop our own ideas, learn from others, and get to know some really interesting people. I also appreciated his connecting what scientists tell us about how the brain works with crafting powerful stories.

I’ve attended many training courses, and this is one of the most thought-provoking and useful sessions I have attended. This is all so relevant to sustainability and helping bring people on the journey. For the first time I presented using a story as the central point without the use of PowerPoints and it went down really well – this has inspired me to try this more often.

Richard Stone’s Story Intelligence Training is a communication toolbox perfect for today’s market challenges requiring nuanced soft skills and employee narratives that address organizational change, diversity, cross-sector team building, and even intergenerational collaboration. The content was readily applicable for educators to manufacturing managers to C-Suite executives and cross-industry participation was an added bonus.

I believe that "Build Your Story Intelligence To Become A More Effective Leader" had a positive impact on the work my wife and I do in our "Clinical Hypnotherapy" practice of thirty-four years. In addition, I have shared the program teachings with my daughter, and I believe it has helped her with parenting her eleven-year-old son and have used the program strategies and practices to understand my younger brother’s life and challenges better.

Like the air we breathe, we often fail to notice that which surrounds and sustains us. Through this research and workshop, Richard and his team distinguish and underscore our stories as something like DNA or cellular material that is often predictive of our future. However, unlike the DNA we are born with, we have unrealized agency and authorship over the stories we tell, such that our future now becomes informed but not limited by our past. Given today's global business, political, environmental, and interpersonal challenges, these principles are essential for bringing about new possibilities and breakthroughs to seemingly intractable problems.
