Vision, Mission, & Values
It all begins with listening
We seek to transform how people engage with their work. We use the power of storytelling to provide organizations with programs that create ownership, empower, and engage employees.
Listening is the very core of what we do because we believe the information each person’s story conveys is relevant to the healthy function of an organization. In addition, listening engenders an open mind that can “hear outside the box.” Catch stories that aren’t being told but need to be. These are the stories that have the most power to transform.
We learn from our clients
Although we have 20 years of expertise in listening for the best story material—and in understanding how storytelling is a critical social function in any organization—we prioritize our clients’ knowledge as the bedrock of any engagement. We want to know and understand. We reflect back what we hear to ensure we are on the same page. (We employ this ethos continuously within our own company.)
We provide expertise
We pride ourselves on our expertise as storytellers, ethnographers, and communicators. But, those skills are as only valuable in as much as they serve our clients organizational goals.
Stories give voice. The organizations that courageously create a dedicated time and space for storytelling demonstrate that they value their employees and the knowledge that comes as the fruit of doing their jobs.
