The Story Cookbook
As you know stories and storytelling represents a powerful creative process for communication and change personality and throughout an organisation. The book contains over 80 activities collected from contributors around the world and is one of the most comprehensive collections of story-based activities available.
The book, organised by menu courses, provides the reader with a treasure trove of activities ranging from elegant relationship-building story techniques to more complex story processes such as quantum storytelling, genre bending and provenance. Designed in an easy-to-follow format, the smorgasbord of storytelling ideas that fill this book provide rich pickings to apply and adapt for all sorts of situations. This enticing resource is a must-read for consultants, facilitators, educators, change makers and leaders interested in working with story and narrative techniques for positive change in individuals, organisations and communities.
