 Lead with a 

powerful story.

Murray Nossel, Ph.D., co-founder and Director, Narativ


Murray Nossel, PhD, co-founder and director of Narativ, will be your trainer. His own origin story begins in the height of the AIDS epidemic 25 years ago, where he forged the Narativ Method of Listening and Telling in order to catalyze policy change and increase public awareness. He has since taught it to thousands of participants across industries as varied as tech, banking, pharma, medicine, beauty, entertainment, and social and political activism. Stories generated from these trainings have touched countless lives and transformed organizations, policy, product development, customer centricity initiatives, team collaboration, leadership strategies and served as the basis for successful media campaigns.

Having performed in the West End of London and Off-Broadway in New York City for many years, Murray is an engaging presenter and passionate instructor who demands that we get the most out of our inherent storytelling potential. His coaching will take you to places you may not expect and reveal abilities you may not have thought you have. In four 90 minute sessions, you will lay the foundation for an unequivocal expression of your raison d'être through a story no one will forget.

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 and craft them into a story arc as a basis for your origin story.
