Active listening does not come naturally to most people - it needs to be taught. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn and practice active listening skills that can be used in daily  interactions to promote clear, meaningful communication.

Find, Craft & Tell Your Story

Is your business or non-profit struggling to clarify your message or engage with potential customers? Connect to the heart of your organization in this hands-on workshop. Katie will help your team uncover their individual stories, your collective story, and your company's story. With a little polish and practice, you will be ready to share that story with the world. 

"It is only through story that you build connection. You have to tell the story so that people feel something. They only want to do something after they feel something." 
~Oprah 

Storytelling for Social Media

You know your story, now figure out how to share that story with the world! In this interactive workshop, participants will practice finding the heart of their message, the purpose of their communication and the through-line of their social media campaign to strengthen both brand and business. 

Team Building

Theater and improvisation games are a fun way to build community, encourage creativity and teamwork, and try something new. These fun play-based workshops will help your team members showcase new skills, listen intently, and relieve stress so they can work together in challenging times. This workshop can be customized for any group size. 

Design your Own Workshop, Presentation or Consulting Plan
