Level Two is focused on finding the right story and then telling it masterfully.


A cohort of 10 people will work together, one-on-one with David as well as members of the faculty to find the right content and tell it well.

Learning Outcomes of Level Two include:


  • Recognizing when you are in your own way and how to become invisible.


  • Understanding the four temperaments and practically applying that understanding.


  • An introduction to the twelve different storytelling strategies and how to use them.


  • Understanding the difference between the beginning, middle, and end of a story and unique skills needed for each.


  • A deeper understanding of "Inspiration" and how to use it.
