The doctors and administrators left with powerful stories and new techniques to bring those stories to life. One example is the creation of six-word stories, which distills a message down to its most important and powerful components. The results were powerful, inspiring, and actionable, leading to on-the-ground storytelling to push care innovation forward.
From my first phone call with Blank Page, it felt more like working with partners than consultants-I felt heard, understood and invited in to co-create what our storytelling workshop would be. In addition to a great preparatory experience with Blank Page, our workshop included relevant, fresh and concrete methods and mindsets that were a huge success for our cohort of first-time storytellers, we all walked away feeling empowered and purposeful.
