STorytelling ORganization Institute

STORI goes beyond story-telling to story listening and story noticing.

Story Noticing is the most important way people in organizations have to understand how they communicate identity, vision, change, and strategy. It is about tuning in to registries of tonality, energetics of the intersubjective, intertextual, and interpersonal spheres.

People and organizations are drifting through their days without noticing their own living story life. We believe the reason for this is that narrative aspires to be theory, to be a dead-text-form-model-abstraction.

Story Noticing is a new inquiry practice and method into the ways which story is dialogic, polyphonic, and relational. Story noticing is so important, we offer training in how to become more aware of the story being taken away in your interactions with customers, vendors, employees, and communities. We offer workshops to increase story noticing, story strategy and story intervention in Storytelling Organizations – See Workshops

STORI (STorytelling ORganization Institute) is the leading coalition of professional story practitioner/scholars.
