In your team

In your team

Is your team struggling to connect across cultural, gender or racial lines? Or would you like to improve the dynamics amongst your team members? Story-sharing is a powerful tool to help your team connect in sometimes unexpected ways and increase empathy, cohesion and inclusivity in your team. 

Why story?

Story-sharing facilitates better teamwork because it: 

  • Makes us better communicators: asking well, listening well.
  • People at all levels feel like they are being heard, are listening better, and feel safe.
  • Provides a safe way to have tough conversations.
“[I] took that risk [to tell my story at work] and got more than I expected. I got support and consideration from my co-workers. It is super."
