We turn your strategies into stories

so you can win adoption for your boldest plans

We know why people fight change— and how to engage and inspire those who need to deliver it.

Lead your teams with a future story.

An engaging story ensures better understanding of what’s to come and provides a practical plan that shows everyone how to get there. Stories help your employees feel engaged, valued, empowered and motivated to execute well in their roles. With everyone on the same page, resistance goes down, cooperation goes up, and success comes with less risk.

“Sharing your strategy as a relatable story set in the future inspires and guides momentum in a way that’s nothing short of magical.”

MIKE WITTENSTEIN​

stories accelerate big changes.

Less expensive than code, construction, or training programs, story prototypes target and eliminate resistance points. And they help earn buy-in early so change can happen faster and with fewer problems. 

our clients get results.

Stories create measurable value. These case studies and testimonials demonstrate that, in our clients’ own words. (Each story is client-approved.)
