Effective communication depends on attention, and nothing captures and holds an audience’s attention like a powerful story about the origin of your idea, project, or leadership ethos.

“Murray's mindful and warm interactions with us, the audience, both as a storyteller and a teacher, and the small group listening and feedback exercises… [made the workshop] very connected...” — Andrea A.

“This approach was much better than the usual webinar, and I appreciate that. While something does get lost in the ether of the internet, it was amazing to be in a 'space' with people from so many different parts of the world.” — Joan 

"Great value! The course materials alone made it a worthwhile investment. I was able to readily apply the content to my work."  — Bree K.

How it works

We All Have An Origin Story, But We May Not Know How to Tell It


When you begin to probe, you may be surprised to find that you have never been able to fully identify and tell a story about the moments, people, and places that brought you to where you are today. Or you may have one indelibly etched memory that you've never succeeded in making equally unforgettable for your listeners.

In this workshop you will use the Narativ Method, developed over 25 years and taught to 1000's of program participants around the world, to excavate those formative life moments, craft them into a story arc, and present them without a script or notes to create a powerful connection with your audience. 

Participants say:

The workshop enhances these natural competencies


The Narativ Method produces singular, genuine, expressive origin stories. The Method's unique focus on the reciprocal relationship of listening and telling also enhances the following important skills:

Deep listening
• Critical editorial thinking
• A sense of creative possibility
• Heightened awareness of the power and uses of speech, word choices, timing, and silence
• Spatial awareness during presentation
• Self-reflective analysis of life events and their role in your identity and work
• Empathy and awareness of each other's humanity as evoked through story
