We have some very powerful views on how to do that.
We have a fundamental principle called Five Level Leadership. Its premise is that all humans operate on five levels – Spirit, Imagination, Intellect, Heart, and Hands. Only when all five of these are active are your employees and customers fully engaged. And it is only when they are fully engaged that your business and employees are working at their best.
HR studies show that in typical organizations only 20% of the employees think of themselves as leaders. If you can increase that percentage, you change your business. Leadership thinking is about constantly working to improve yourself and what you do, about being accountable, and about helping others to be their best – no matter what your job is.
Great leaders and organizations understand the power of stories and they use them. Stories touch us on all of our levels, so we remember them and they cause us to change our behaviour. That’s why all the world’s religions are built on stories. And it’s why great companies use stories to define who they are and what they stand for, like:
Our stories show people, companies, and ideas that have changed the world, and our magic comes from how we model their success and apply it to your audience to show them how to drive their performance.
The story library includes:
The most popular of these is our Leadership Storytelling Workshop, in which we give your employees tips and a process for turning “data” into “story” and for being better storytellers. These are particularly popular in helping sales forces to stop “data dumping”, and also in helping executive teams launch new visions, missions, or strategies.
We have a variety of other workshops on Leadership, Communication, Teamwork, Innovation and Customer Experience. We also run custom workshops to solve specific business challenges.
Like our conference presentations, our workshops all use our library of incredible stories to make the sessions energizing and unforgettable.
The goal may be to bring a vision, values, or strategy to life in ways people remember. It may be to capture your best customer experiences so that they are more than just “case studies”. It may be to change or improve the way employees see their roles or contribution.
No matter what your goal is, our proven process can help your company bring its stories to life to become powerful strategic tools.
