INTRODUCING BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION CONSULTING
Design and integrate a new strategic narrative to empower transformation at scale.
Hi there—thanks for finding me. My name’s Jordan Bower, and I’m a business transformation consultant. My clients have included an astonishing array of organizations, functions, and teams. I’ve worked with sales teams at companies like Autodesk, innovation teams at companies like Mozilla, and executive leaders at unicorns like Pleo. I’ve advised boards, IT leaders, interior design consultants, HR teams, and police officers. I’ve even worked with a sitting Congressman.
My job is to help organizational leaders improve how they communicate so they can drive transformation at scale.
This is more complicated than it sounds. I don’t do change that needs to be “managed”—I don’t invent nice-sounding corporate jargon that softens a change that comes from the top-down. Instead, I help my clients design change that embodies a different level of fulfillment, meaning and creativity in their organizational culture.
Change managers take organizations from A to B. I help create transformation that goes from A to infinity.
Not sure what that means yet? Neither do I—for you. So every engagement starts with a robust Discovery and visioning process.
To kickstart us, you can schedule a meeting with me below.
Let’s chat about your vision.

HOW I APPROACH BUSINESS STORYTELLING
Helping organizational teams improve their communication at scale.
In-person business storytelling workshops are an essential portion of how I help my clients improve their communication. But on its own, a workshop is not enough. Rather than coming into a new organization and “waving my magic wand” with a bunch of idealist learning objectives, I take a deeper and more systematic approach.
Every cline engagement starts with a robust Discovery process. This Discovery process helps me get beneath the surface, assess the deeper problem, and recommend a solution. From there, I work with clients to develop the right combination of workshops, coaching, shifts in organizational systems, etc. that will result in a sustainable improvement in communication at scale.
A typical engagement follows these steps:
Discovery usually includes extensive 1-on-1 interviews across multiple levels of your team, from the executive down to the intern. I’m looking to understand current capabilities, your business environment, the history, relationship dynamics between leaders, etc. so I can offer a clear vision of how to improve—and a plan of action to get there.
Facilitated Workshops and Visioning Sessions
Storytelling skills are an essential portion of every workshop. Workshops draw from my extensive set of storytelling methodologies and frameworks. But they go far beyond a conventional training. By simply asking “what makes a good leadership storyteller,” teams begin to explore what better business storytelling means specifically for them. These facilitated group sessions become collective visioning exercises where the team discusses their opportunities openly, coming together around a vision for sustainable change.
Capability Development Plan
Often, the road to better communication means evolving tools and systems in addition to skills. Even a great storyteller can be hamstrung by a data-heavy Powerpoint deck or an inauthentic messaging strategy that’s missing a little bit of creativity.
At the end of every business storytelling workshop, I deliver a capability development plan that outlines a customized way forward—and a precise path to getting there: i.e. learning tools, articles, videos, subsequent trainings, peer coaching, etc.
For all clients, the outcome of an initial engagement is a new understanding of what “business storytelling” means for them, and alignment around a clear, customized capability development plan. Some clients continue to engage me to facilitate the skill development process. Other clients take this plan and execute using their own internal resources—bringing me back the next time they need a new vision for how to evolve.
