The storytelling revival has created a need and an opportunity for a new kind of helping role: that of storytelling coach, the job Doug Lipman was born to do. Using principles modeled first by his father and later by his most helpful teachers-and refined in his own training and experience-Lipman strives to create a positive learning atmosphere in his popular workshops. Now, in The Storytelling Coach, he shares his principles for all who teach and use the art of communication.
