“Team members communicated better together than they were able to in the past. I think this was a result of your style, warm and affirming presence and the process which you use”

Julie van Oosten, Team Member, Pave the Way.

 

“Most people can’t hear until they’ve been heard.”

Red Scott, businessman

 

“We tell ourselves stories in order to live.”

Joan Didion

 

“Until recently we’ve only been able to speculate about story’s persuasive effects. But over the last several decades psychology has begun a serious study of how story affects the human mind. Results repeatedly show that our attitudes, fears, hopes, and values are strongly influenced by story. In fact, fiction seems to be more effective at changing beliefs than writing that is specifically designed to persuade through argument and evidence.”

Jonathan Gottschall

 

“Although setbacks of all kinds may discourage us, the grand, old process of storytelling puts us in touch with strengths we may have forgotten, with wisdom that has faded or disappeared, and with hopes that have fallen into darkness.”

Nancy Mellon

 

“In my life, the stories I have heard from my family, my friends, my community, and from willing strangers all over the world have been the true source of my education.”
