Get your team in Story Mode …
… where teams, individuals, and whole organizations develop the creative confidence and story-crafting capability to get results.
We guide each person to discover their own best process for finding and telling the right story every time, in any medium, for any audience.
What IS Story Mode?
Story Mode is creative turducken for the workplace. It’s learning wrapped up in doing wrapped up in culture change.
Story Mode is an ever-inventive world where stories and creativity lead to unpredictable places. Where messy beginnings become masterpieces. Where you learn to love the limitations.
We design and deliver inspiring programs that send positive waves through your culture, bringing people together and expanding their skills.
By focusing on storytelling and improv, we guide people to think, write, present, persuade, and engage in innovative conversations. We emphasize:
- emotion, because colleagues and clients have feelings too
- craft, because quality and consistency matter
- physicality, because our bodies tell stories
- action, because sharing a message is about building relationships and creating conversations
And, we keep our eyes squarely on the audience.
You don’t need to learn to write a sentence.
You need to learn to tell a persuasive, captivating, successful story.
And by “you,” we mean you, your team, your up-and-coming leaders, or your whole freaking company. From interns to executives, newbies to seasoned pros, everyone can learn to amp up their storytelling superpowers. No matter who’s in the room (virtual or otherwise), we’ll fit and flex the Story Mode program to level up their communication skills and creative confidence.
