Sharing resilience: telling your story of resilience
NB This session can be attended as a standalone but you must attend this one if you want to attend the follow-up session on 4 May.
The past year has been filled with challenges. It is not only the challenges themselves that will determine our future, but also the story that we tell ourselves and others about those challenges.
FrameWorks has deep expertise in studying how human beings think in stories, and how those stories shape the way we think, feel and behave. This workshop will show the difference between productive and unproductive stories. And it will explore how you can construct a productive story that will enhance your ability to engage with your donors, beneficiaries and stakeholders and influence hearts and minds.
This session is open to all staff from Pears grantee organisations.
