The Language of Connection™

Develop storytelling as a leadership skill

Great leaders use stories to establish emotional connection and inspire action. Powerful storytelling requires a command of what to say, how to frame it, and timing.

Learn how to tell the leadership stories that will move and shape your team and organization. Join Amanda Madorno, her herd of horses, and professional storyteller Doug Banner for three inspired days of storytelling development and practice.

Storytelling and horses

Horses tell and listen to stories through the language of the body. By reading our nonverbal communication and energy, horses show us what is and isn’t believable. They help us to learn what is most convincing to our listeners — not our words — but our physical presence. Horses will tell you what you need to shift to make your story credible and compelling.
