Storytelling Training Personal Development

Storytelling center organiseert particuliere storytelling trainingen voor persoonlijke ontwikkeling, maar organiseert dit ook samen of vanuit een organisatie.

“During the training with the aid of different tools I learned to make my message come across more strongly. I learned to be braver and to share a personal story and to listen constructively to someone else's. It was an incredibly pleasant environment to learn."

Storytelling contributes to a growth in self-confidence, respect and reflection. In this the aspect of being heard is very important. And you will be heard sooner if you can tell a good story. That is why we regularly offer training courses to different groups to learn how to tell a good story. Moreover, making a story helps you structure your thoughts and discover what you actually find important.

Workshops made to fit

The trainings are tailor-made, depending on the target group and the goal. Please contact us for more information about a workshop.
