    • Documentary

Richard Stone is a nationally recognized speaker on the power of storytelling and its applications in business, healthcare, and education. He got his start 25+ years ago developing story-based training programs for team building and leadership development and has been a leader in work on narrative reminiscence. He has worked with diverse organizations and Fortune 500 companies. Richard has authored: The Healing Art of Storytelling, Stories: The Family Legacy, The Kingdom of Nowt, and co-wrote The Patient Survival Handbook with Synensis’s CEO Stephen Powell. Previously he was the Chief Innovation Officer for Synensys, and prior to that the StoryAnalytics Master for the IDEAS Innovation team (a former division of the Walt Disney Company) where he was on the team that created StoryCare, an innovative program for driving behavioral change among healthcare staff to improve patient safety and satisfaction. Richard also co-created the award-winning board game Pitch-A-Story and is an accomplished artist and photographer. Richard is also on the board of PCI Media, an international organization located in New York City committed to improving health, environmental, and social justice outcomes around the world using the power of story. Richard was the recipient of the 2015 Patient Voice Impact Award co-sponsored by the Leapfrog Group and the Patient Voice Institute. The video he created for the award describes his experience caring for his ailing father. Richard lives in Decatur, GA with his wife, Elizabeth Cohen.

Story Intelligence—SQ—assists you to become a master of your story, a pursuit indispensable to personal and professional success. By developing your SQ you’ll amplify and unleash every aspect of your intelligence, including your IQ and EQ. In this book you’ll also learn how you’re wired for story and the ways it can set a positive trajectory for every facet of your life journey.



Developing this level of mastery is imperative today because four in ten Americans have not discovered a satisfying life purpose and nearly a quarter of us—about one hundred million people—do not have a strong sense of what makes their lives meaningful. We need more than ever ritual fires where we can gather to create new stories that transcend the old metanarratives that no longer enrich and satisfy the yearnings of our hearts and souls.



Story is a potent medicine that can re-enchant our lives. By re-storying ourselves, consciously building it into everyday living, we can make space to better hear ourselves, to listen more deeply to each other, as well as discern the tales the earth is quietly whispering in our ears. Hopefully, Story Intelligence will help you stoke a new kind of fire, assisting you to illuminate what the Japanese call “ikigai”—translated loosely as “that which most makes one’s life seem worth living.” Through mastering story, we believe you can build a more durable source of meaning and personal fulfillment, as well as have a wider impact for the good in your community and the world.



In this book you’ll also learn how to:

· Harness the power of story to live with greater efficacy.

· Become a more powerful communicator.

· Solve difficult challenges using story-based solutions.

· Transform your workplace and community.

· Heal old wounds, change dysfunctional beliefs, and bridge differences by resolving deeply seated conflicts.

· Acquire the narrative tools to craft a more desirable future.
