Whether you're just getting started or heading up to the next big stage, coaching is a powerful way to prepare. What does a coach do?
First of all: your coach will LISTEN!To your ideas, to your story, to your concerns.
Secondly, the coach helps you process how you think you're doing.
How does coaching help you prepare for your upcoming storytelling event:
Story Selection: A chance to run your ideas by someone else.
How to outline your time with your audience
Possible suggestions on how to help keep your audience engaged.
A coach provides a supportive and objective voice to help you process your concerns.
Coaching is both supportive and decisive
We can help you connect with powerful professional coaches to help you craft your stories for telling.
The coaching sessions can be one on one or in small, intimate groups. Normally the groups would have no more than 5 people. Set aside a few hours and dig in to The Art of Storytelling.
Who will lead the coaching sessions?
All coaches have experience as supportive, non-threatening, positive coaches, who will encourage you! Coaches are often selected from the cadre of presenters.
What are the fees for coaching sessions?
Coaching rates vary between professional tellers. But all tellers want to help strengthen the art. Many will work on a sliding scale, based on ability to pay. The Mother Lode Storytelling Guild offers scholarships for new tellers. If you're planning to tell at our 2018 Story Slam Contest, contact guild president BZ Smith for super savings on coaching.
