We need new leaders with the vision, courage, vulnerability and communication skills to guide us into the unknown. There's no "going back".

Storytellers Transform Facts Into Meanings

Hi, I’m Jordan Bower: a leadership storytelling consultant & coach based in Vancouver, Canada.

My work helps strategic leaders tell the story about what has changed and what it means. I help clients develop a new tone in their communications—one based on empathy, purpose, meaning, insight, clarity, emotional intelligence and a profound understanding of today’s most important social issues.

Sound like you? You can connect with me here.

Relevant content. Can be implemented. Challenged my thinking. Jordan knows his material inside and out and communicates it wonderfully.

WHO I REALLY AM

I Learned to Be a Storyteller One Step At a Time

A Journey With Momentum

I never set out to do what I do. My work found me, in the middle of the strange and wonderful trip that changed my life—a 316-day-long walking trip from Canada to Mexico.

(That’s me crossing the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco on Day 155.)

That trip started with a terrible breakup, as things like this always do. I set off for redemption, but, along the way, I found myself reckoning with my most important stories—the ones that connected my family, background, identity and personal traumas with the many failures that I thought defined who I was.

Confronting these stories changed who I was and inspired me to become who I am today.

I used to think that my emotions were supposed to be repressed or ignored. As I walked, I learned—viscerally—how wrong I had been. This insight forms the core of my work.

I’ve spent the last decade writing a memoir about this trip. I’m currently looking for an agent and publisher.
