Child Helpline International is an international network of child helplines with 181 members from 147 countries. They had a two-day event with several workshops in a beautiful location by the sea at Wijk aan Zee in The Netherlands. We conducted a half-day Organisational Storytelling Training focused on social impact and storytelling for and about children. It was a brilliant group of 25 people, passionate about helping children all around the world. In our training, we covered neurology of storytelling, organisational storytelling and communication, increasing impact through storytelling, visualising and digitalising a story. We planned this training with fun and active hands-on exercises as you can see in the photo. This way, our attendees learned how to visualise their stories and share it with others.


Since all the change-makers attending the training were working in the same organisation for the same cause, we organised the exercises to increase their organisational storytelling skills. The ones who know the story of an organisation best, are the ones devoting all their time, energy, intellect, creativity and skills for this organisation. Hence, they tell the most valuable stories through their personal experiences in the past, from ideas and questions concerning the present, and from a personal vision about the future.

Storytelling is a form of communication that can be learned through training, planning and practice; and all organisations can benefit from storytelling. Imagine everybody at work participates in preparing a unique collective story and work towards telling it in their own departments. Can you imagine how much love, harmony, collaboration, and action it can create within the organisation?
