How being direct can radically transform peoples' perceptions of what they see, hear, and believe about the world around us.

Words matter. How being direct can radically transform peoples’ perceptions of what they see, hear, and believe about the world around us.

This video snippet offers one highlight from our narrative workshop with Anat Shenker-Osorio (February 2019.) In this video clip, Anat uplifts the “people do things” principle, showing how our direct language can dramatically modify individuals’ belief systems. If we don’t describe problems as people-caused, we can’t show people how problems can be people-solved.
