Stories and storytelling have been in existence most likely since the birth of human language. Yet in many of our current workplaces, our personal lives and business cultures, storytelling as a communication method seems devalued and underused, certainly compared with the strict emphasis on facts, numbers, trends and statistics.
To learn more about how storytelling can help businesses thrive, To explore how it can help you become better performer and leader, we have constructed this program using the traditional tools of Natyashastra, Navras and Dastangoi . We have woven them with modern tools of storytelling and content at an application level so that a you can expand your creative range and communication skills and become a confident and effective speaker, leader and performer.
The focus of this programme is to develop children, youth and adults to become critical creative writers, confident speakers and stimulating performers.
Aim: Students acquire powerful self confidence and get off to a flying start in life. Storytelling teaches the skills to express your innermost thoughts creatively and feelings that you have always aspired to do. In brief, the three most crucial skills you acquire are self confidence, positive persuasion and creative expression.
