Communicate with greater clarity, authenticity, engagement and influence.
A full-day team workshop for Executives & Senior Leaders
For leaders, storytelling is more than the way we present our anecdotes. Storytelling helps us answer questions of why?: why others should care, why our work matters, why we are making one choice over another. Specifically in times of change or transformation, storytelling is an essential tool for building buy-in and creating alignment. By being strategic about which stories we tell, when, to who, and why, we can learn to employ the right mixture of logic and emotion that spurs action.
Leaders come into this workshop with one “story” in mind. For example, an upcoming presentation, pitch or a strategic narrative around a relevant and important change initiative. Over the course of the day, you’ll workshop this story using a set of powerful and innovative exercises. You’ll leave with new insights into storytelling, as well as tangible work you can apply immediately.

Jordan Bower’s superpower is bridging strategy & story. The founder of Transformational Storytelling, an innovation consultancy. A graduate of the Richard Ivey School of Business. A compelling keynote speaker. An adept and playful facilitator. A vocal advocate for gender-balanced leadership. Jordan has worked with leaders at start-ups, corporations and foundations across North America. He is based in Vancouver, where he is putting the finishing touches on a book about his walking trip from Canada to Mexico. (It took 316 days and 3 pairs of shoes.)
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.
