Storyforth Offerings

Storyforth: We work with people like you—leaders from all backgrounds and cultures—who want to bring forward stories for collaborative work.

Purposeful Work: Stories are where things begin.

Part One
Advance purposeful work with your story:
Three practical steps for effective storytelling.

Stories invigorate the knowledge we need for effective work practices. For example, stories can close the gap between women and men with experience and those who want to learn from them.

Part Two
Diversify your conversations:
In-depth training on new story development.

Produce stories with themes that matter: overcoming obstacles, building more inclusive environments, and uncovering invisible barriers to new work.

Part Three
Develop your internal workforce dynamics:
A portfolio of stories designed for your setting.

Stories are an important tool for collaboration. When authentic experience is shared, we listen in a deeper way.

Please contact us to learn more about our unique follow-up work, including live storytelling sessions, individual coaching, and “Storyblasts.”

Based on our extensive experience and years of education, we show you how to find extraordinary opportunities in your everyday experience. We look forward to meeting you.
