Successful Nonprofits Podcast


Nov 14, 2023

Kristin Sukraw, an award-winning storyteller and film producer with a passion for bringing nonprofit narratives to life, gives us a masterclass in finding and telling our nonprofit’s best stories.

Kristin introduces essential interviewing techniques that transform the way stories are told and received.  Techniques like 'embracing the pause', 'doing the dip', and 'effective restatements.'

Kristin and Dolph also tackle potential concerns about re-traumatizing former clients and the ethics of asking individuals to recount personal stories. And Kristen outlines how to invite individuals to share their experience in a way that leads to healing and a sense of pride.

The conversation also explores the importance of selecting the right storyteller, advocating for the inclusion of quieter voices that often carry profound stories, and constructing a 'story vault' to organize potential narratives.

This episode is a treasure trove for nonprofit leaders looking to harness the power of storytelling to advance their mission.
