Stories matter. And your organization is founded on a good one. Expertly crafted and employed, an organization's story can significantly benefit operations and the bottom line. You've imagined something, grown passionate about it, struggled a lot and risked much to separated yourself from comforts of the herd. That story matters. Let’s share it with the world.
A one- to two-hour workshop with business leaders, the Story Story workshop reviews the organization’s origins and develops a provocative and concise data-driven story true to the spirit of the company’s creation and potential.
A 1.5- to 2.5-hour workshop with business leaders, the Startup Story workshop helps your organization craft a story alive with an energy true to your company's creation. It includes the same as the Short Story workshop, but involves the extended leadership team within an organization (BU managers, hiring managers, etc.) who work through their own “startup stories” to reinforce the value of an inspirational story, link it to the organization’s story, and teach them how to employ the story to improve operations within and without the organization.
A three- to four-hour workshop with business leaders, the Deep Dive workshop accomplishes the same as the Startup Story workshop, involving the extended leadership team within an organization (BU managers, hiring managers, etc.) who are introduced to exemplary organizational storytelling examples specific to each BU represented, before attendees workshop their own “startup stories” to reinforce the value of an inspirational story, link it to the organization’s story, and teach them how to employ the story to improve operations within and without the organization.
In addition, effective data-driven storytelling presentation techniques are taught and practiced.
