In 1996, aware of the potential contribution of storytelling to the corporate world, the Center for Creative Leadership began using Doug Lipman as a consultant, trainer of staff, and provider of direct services in storytelling, program design, and coaching.
In one instance, Doug consulted to the design team for "Global Stewardship," a program aimed at top executives in global corporations. As a result, storytelling became the "glue that held the program together." At the pilot in Switzerland, Lipman presented both the storytelling and the coaching components of the program.
A storyteller by profession since 1976, Lipman is the award-winning author of four books, including Improving Your Storytelling and The Storytelling Coach, eleven audio recordings, and an instructional video, Coaching Storytellers: A Demonstration Workshop.
Lipman began serving the storytelling and arts community, then went on to serve the business community. He has consulted and offered training in various industries, including the legal and healthcare professions.
His clients have worked in the software industry, as general consultants, and in government - anywhere human beings need to make decisions and communicate the results.
