ďSean promised me that when he was finished with the day, our people would have practical skills to begin their own story telling. Sean was right. Not only did he give folks practical strategies for forming stories he captivated and inspired us all with stories of his own.Ē

What Shocks Seanís Clients

Corporate storytelling is hard work. Itís not a gimmick. This process reveals what works in your job or company and what is really in need of repair. Are you ready for that? Some of Seanís clients are shocked. Storytelling is a hard skill, not a "throw the stuffed fish across the room" motivational fad. Sure, that is fun, but these fads are not genuine, long-term tools. Another shocker: the more esoteric your work, the more you need storytelling. Accounting, risk management, information tech: weíre talking to you, too.

What Others Say About Sean:

"He is not only knowledgeable about the art of storytelling, but his vision advances the art." -Kevin Cordi

"Nobody thinks like you do." -Richard

"It was great learning with you today. I thank you so much for your time and generous spirit, as well as all the valuable things I learned with you today. I look forward to learning with you more and moving forward in this great adventure and endeavor..." -Steve

"I experienced a mild nirvana when we were working together today."-David

A Note From Sean:
"Youíve been reading about using the techniques of storytelling to further your success in your career field. You might have even read an article by me. Maybe youíve attended a professional conference to take a storytelling workshop filled with 100 other people. Storytelling is a tool for YOUR business but itís tough to know what you, specifically, need to learn from a generic article or when all those other people are vying for the same time slot or presenterís attention. In our private or small-group coaching sessions, let me focus on one thing: YOU and YOUR GROUP.

I Train the Trainers
Other storytellers come to me to learn about the ins and outs of their art form. I am honored to be called on for these moments as a storyteller coach. I also know that there are only a few storytellers who truly understand what you need when you are seeking corporate storytelling training. My focus is on business storytelling in both the for-profit and non-profit arenas. In addition, I work with many entrepreneurs on their presentation skills for their small to medium-sized businesses.

Skills Skills Skills:
Storytelling, the oldest and most natural form of verbal communication on the planet, will improve your ability to communicate your message and make that message stick in the hearts and minds of your clients, your listeners, your friends, your superiors. This is very specialized public speaking training, unlike anything else you have had in the past.

Interpret. Express. Integrate.(tm)

You will learn solid skills in such areas as intentionality, episodic thinking, spatial space, sources and ethics. All of these are part of the serious coaching youíll receive from Sean that will transform your ability to communicate to and with others. All public speaking skill levels are welcome, even those that might have a fear of public speaking.

Is Corporate Training a Joke?
Sean says, "Let me tell you a story. Iíve been lucky enough to offer training in the health care, transportation, publishing, hospitality and non-profit organizations. Some time ago, I sat in on another trainer who said to the audience, no less than 9 times in a four-hour workshop, íNow, I donít know if this applies to you in this industry, but I am going to teach it to you anyway.í
I was shocked. Here was a man getting paid way too much money who didnít even take the time to know what heís talking about before training. No wonder people hate corporate training!"

"My Promises to You"
Sean continues. "But I want you to read this: I promise you several things. First, you will never hear me say, íThis might not apply to you but I am going to tell you anyway.í Never! I will always be prepared. Second, you WILL learn with me as I teach and coach all skill levels.I donít trade real learning (student centered) for gimmicks (teacher centered). Third, this will be affordable for any company.
