STORYTELLING SUMMIT: Leadership & Directing

  • Muse Storytelling 107 SE Washington St Portland, OR USA (map)

Your people, your crew, they will always be your greatest asset. 

The Navy SEALs call it the 40% rule. When you think you’re done, when you think you’ve given everything you have–you’re actually only at 40% of your true ability. It’s up to the director to unlock that massive well of potential in each and every crew member.

This is what exceptional directors do. They are able to pull each and every member into a space where they can create well beyond their everyday abilities.

But it’s more than the words you say. It’s a way of being. A way of instilling confidence, connection, and passion. A way of lighting a fire inside each and every person to push past the challenges, past their own limits, and give you everything they have.

This Storytelling Summit is will expose you to the leading research on how to be the most effective leader you can be. But more than just ideas, our Storytelling Summits are about putting the ideas into practice, learning by doing, to ensure that you leave the weekend a far better leader.
