Jordan worked with my team earlier this year. It was a remarkable experience for all.... even the skeptics! They walked away with concrete improvements and I have seen many put the lessons to work in their everyday interactions to be more effective and influencing.

Build transformational leadership skills through Strategic Storytelling.
Storytelling is about much more than public speaking. Storytelling is a metaphor for the way we integrate our personal values with our professional lives. Our stories carry our beliefs, communicate our values and articulate our purpose with much more clarity and emotional force than corporate buzzwords or jargon.
In organizations, Strategic Storytelling helps us answer questions of why?: why we do what we do, why our work matters, why we should make one strategic choice over another. Whenever the strategy changes, the story needs to change too — and not just the story we tell others. You can’t separate message from messenger. To lead change successfully, we need to change the story we tell ourselves first.
Transformational Storytelling is a process of linking change in the organization to change within ourselves.

In-person and virtual training workshops for executives, sales and internal teams.
Jordan's ability to help us take different views and methodologies and turn them into a cohesive summary understood not only by all the participants, but by others in our organization, is truly amazing.

About Jordan Bower
I walked across America,
and found my life’s work along the way.
Like all great stories, my journey to become a storytelling consultant was entirely unexpected. Back in 2010, in the middle of a bad breakup, I impulsively uploaded a video to the crowdfunding website, Kickstarter, telling the entire world about my plan to walk across America, from Canada to Mexico.
Walking to Mexico had been my ex-girlfriend’s idea, and when I pitched the idea, what I really wanted was to get her back. When I raised the money but not the girl, what I got instead was the insight that led me to do the work I do today.
