ATTENDING THE LISTENER is focused on meeting the needs of the audience/listener.

A cohort of 12 people will work together and one-on-one with David and members of the faculty to help the storyteller adapt to all rooms.

Learning Outcomes of ATTENDING THE LISTENER include:

  • Develop an appreciation and reframing of making mistakes.

  • Deepen your empathy and learn how to properly contain it.

  • Entering every environment and meeting every group of people with a sense of possibility and magic.

  • Navigate surprises with grace and make decisions with confidence to meet those surprises.

  • Practice with instructors how to adapt RS to your community as well as how to become a teacher of RS.

One of the gifts of RS is the ability to see your community with freshness and a beginner's mind.

A Video from David and Meredith on "Answering Every Question" with RS

This video from last year breaks down how the storyteller can meet the moment with a question and then access the answer elegantly and immediately.
