At The Crossroads of People and Technology

Our Methodology

One of the most memorable, inspiring, and motivational ways to deliver information is through business narrative. Every successful presenter needs to craft a story that includes characters progressing in a logical way through a series of events to arrive at a satisfying conclusion. The discipline of business narrative lies at the heart of Halpern & Associates’ methodology.

"I have worked with Ruth for over 10 years and have only positive things to say about her unique and collaborative style of training. Ruth provides an unexpected experience for those employed in law firms who are used to training that is solely computer-based. Ruth's emphasis on the people side of our environment and how to deliver results internally, externally and personally is refreshing and innovative."

"The work you’re doing with narrative is extremely powerful. I've found that often the best way to guide partners and managers through complicated financials or complex change is to frame the information in a story. Facts, statistics and details become more meaningful and memorable in the context of a narrative."
