Helping leaders tell purpose-driven STORIES

Strategic storytelling training, coaching and authoring.

Joel’s workshops and coaching give you the tools to craft and tell brief brilliant stories. Tools that set you apart as an authentic leader who can leverage the power of stories to move audiences into action.

What’s your story?

People don’t just buy what you do, they buy why you do it.
A purpose-driven story is the most effective way to communicate those values.  Are you ready for Joel to help craft your story?

Great storytellers have an unfair competitive advantage.

They will be the businesses most talked about, they will recruit talent faster, attract more partners, they are going to have a strong cohesive corporate culture. AND they are more likely to deliver a positive ROI.

Are you telling a powerful story?

If not, someone else will (with less flattering results). Training to write/tell awesome stories — or let Joel author/polish them.

All good stories express one grand truth…

How and why life changes! Facts are what is. Truth is how and why what is is! As a story expresses its hows and whys of change, the listener’s mind fills with understanding. As a story’s events change a character’s life positive to negative or vice versa, the listener’s emotions ignite.
