Embracing Humanity in Storytelling and Leadership

“I’d like to think that the stories that we tell on behalf of our clients are helping them remember their why, their reason for being, and why they exist today.”

In this episode, Jerome and Julienne talk to Elena Valentine. She is the co-founder and executive director of Skillscout, a creative studio dedicated to transforming brand stories into compelling visuals that inspire action and belief. She tells Jerome and Julienne about how her business started with the premise that ‘you cannot be what you cannot see’, and how that has influenced her work ever since. They talk about the power of video and storytelling to bring jobs and company culture to life and the most important moments during production of a video: making the people in it feel seen, heard, validated, and celebrated. This leads them to the importance of listening and storytelling in leadership and showing your humanity.

Listen to this episode to hear more about story collection and storytelling for video production and to witness some beautiful examples of leaders expressing their humanity.
