This 90-minute self paced workshop will introduce you to Story-based Strategy Core Concepts in theory and use. Participants will be provided with a practical framework for understanding the power of knowing and using a Story-based Strategy in their work.

We will explore what it means to apply a “Narrative Analysis of Power” to social change work and share the Story-based Strategy approach for developing narratives. Throughout the workshop, we review critical moments in history and popular culture to create memorable demonstrations of what the Story-based Strategy Core Concepts are and how they work. Participants begin practicing right away, learning how the concepts are alive in their life.
