How do we tell our positive vision of the future rather than focusing on dramatic pictures in which problems are rarely solvable? How do we tell stories which inspire people to take actions and to participate in the “things that matters”? How do we motivate people to create real change by providing solutions?
We invite you to join our international workshop – SOLUTION FOCUSED STORYTELLING – designed for everyone who would dive into the art of creating positive impacts by storytelling that focuses on what works, explores desired future and tracks past successes, situations and experience with the aim to discover, amplify and strengthen the existing abilities, strategies and resources.
This is a solution-focused and value-driven 2-days training that covers theory and highly interactive observing, feeling, listening and telling sessions. Some of the topics that we will explore together cover the nature of the relationship between problem solving and solution finding and how that impact storytelling, creating the difference that makes a difference, and turning problems into solutions.
The workshop will take place at the Multi Kulti Center on 5 Chernomen Street, Sofia on 13-14 April 2019.
We believe it is a valuable experience for people interested or working in fields like:
– PR and media professionals
– Innovation and corporate social responsibility
– NGO sector
– Donаtion and philanthropy
– Social entrepreneurship
– Youth work
– Therapy and coaching
– Public and private sector professionals
