Many job seekers struggle during interviews because they believe they must prove themselves. This mindset can lead to a lack of confidence and inauthenticity. The key to interview success is shifting the focus to building connection and trust with the hiring manager. The fastest way to cross that bridge is through sharing stories that show your strengths, accomplishments, background, and values. Stories convey a lot of information about you in a short amount of time and allow the hiring manager to connect with you on a personal level.
Master Storytelling for Job Interviews
A 1-week hybrid of e-learning and job interview coaching that helps you search for the right stories, shape them so they concisely and memorably highlight relevant information, and share them aloud so you feel confident by the time you're meeting with your interviewers.

Master Storytelling for Job Interviews helps you:
Remembering and owning what you bring to the table
You may believe that you must prove yourself in a job interview, which can lead to you appearing unconfident. Through our process of searching for the best interview stories you will shift your mindset to recognizing your strengths and owning what you bring to the table, allowing you to feel confident and stay present. Let's tap into your strengths and accomplishments and highlight them through your interview stories.
Know what the company is looking for in a candidate
You may feel unsure of what the company is looking for in a candidate, which can lead to you sharing irrelevant information during an interview. We teach you how to use the job description and company website to decide what is important to highlight in your job interview — and to think like a hiring manager, so you know what they are looking for in your responses.
Become a more masterful storyteller and communicator
You may feel nervous speaking in front of audiences. Storytelling is one of the most authentic ways to connect with yourself (after all, it is your story), and your audience. Not only will this course help you during your job interview, but it will also help you further your career because you're learning the skills to be a persuasive communicator.
Connect with the hiring manager
You may be hyper focusing on yourself during a job interview, instead of focusing on your audience, which results in over or undersharing. By having multiple interview stories prepared in advance, and having an effective storytelling formula to frame them, you can shift your focus to connecting with the hiring manager and knowing what your sharing is just enough.
What Makes this Different?
Our With 1 Word® Storytelling Method
The first response that comes to mind to an interview question might not be the best example. Our With 1 Word® approach to SEARCHING for stories opens the opportunity to find a multitude of stories to choose from, so you can highlight the best examples during your job interview.
Too many times we ramble on and on until the hiring manager stops caring (but might continue to fake interest). Our visual approach for SHAPING stories using the SARM (Situation, Action, Result, Message/Modification/Meaning) storytelling formula allows you to get your thoughts down quickly so you don't get stuck in grammatical minutia and lets you easily trim the excess from your stories to ensure your stories are specific, concise, and memorable.
As good as a story may sound in our head, it never seems to come out with the same level of success until we’ve practiced saying it out loud several times. This is different from memorization, because you may tell your story differently every time and refine it with your reps. We help you practice sharing your stories out loud, so that you feel confident and improve them along the way.

I was a stay-at-home mom for about a year. Even though the break from working was planned, it is still challenging to come back into the workforce confidently.

Gain Confidence and Clarity.
I didn’t even think to tie items from the job description to help answer the question, tell me about yourself. This course gave me a succinct and memorable way to do that. I was able to try it out in an interview shortly after the course and it was pretty incredible to see how the interviewer leaned in to learn more. I landed the job!
