About Transformational Storytelling

Develop the strategy, systems, skills and stories that unlock visionary potential and achieve key business goals.

Core Components of transformational storytelling

Storytelling Design Thinking Exercises

Empathy Mapping

Empathy mapping helps you develop messages that resonate authentically with your audiences. By developing a deep understanding of your audience’s needs and wants, you develop innovative, forward looking solutions instead of relying only on historical data or making risky bets based on instinct instead of evidence.

Imaginative Visioning

Salespeople say “facts tell, but stories sell.” Imaginative Visioning exercises help you add rich sensory elements to the dry corporate jargon of benefits, ROI and features. Visioning is also key for learning — by using a neurological concept called neural reuse, you, your team and your customers all learn to develop behaviours and metaphors that ground a theoretical concept into an emotional reality.

Visual Thinking

Visual thinking is a way to organize your thoughts and improve your ability to think and communicate. It’s a truly international language. By using the storytelling maxim of “show, don’t tell,” you shift out of the realm of didactic, power-leaden narratives and into an inclusive mode of valuing and integrating diverse experiences.

Prototyping & Iteration

Through the process of prototyping and iteration, you let go of “perfect” and move towards understanding your narrative as a collaborative dialogue with your audience. You enable participation, collaboration, insight and authenticity by letting go the reins of control over your story, discovering new ideas, possibilities and arenas for growth.
