“Telling our stories built trust, brought deeper learning, vulnerability and toughness…listening to our leader tell her story, I was excited because now I knew that this is something we needed.”
The evaluation looked at how What’s Your Story? has been used in workplaces, churches and schools and found that:
- 44% of the participants indicated that since being part of a WYS experience they had listened to someone else’s story.
- 24% of participants indicated that since undertaking WYS they had told their story to someone else
- When asked to provide reasons for adopting WYS, 29% of respondents indicated that they wanted to improve relations between people in their organisation.
- 18% indicated that they wanted to break down a barrier through the sharing of stories.
Singizi Consulting Africa also put together case studies which show real-world examples of how meaningful changes are happening in churches around South Africa as people connect through story.
