making big changes?

(who isn’t?)

Let Storyminers help you figure out your new game plan, and the story your team needs to make it real.

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

Without commitments, you cannot lead.

An effective leader delivers a clear vision for the future that all can embrace. Given the uncertainties that come with tomorrow, this is needed even more to create your organization’s future.

Imagine having a Future Story to introduce the game plan to be adopted. It should enlist your organization to feel that it’s achievable and that the rewards will be great. Does your Future Story include the Reason for Being, values, and the business strategies your teams need to live by? How do you know they are on board? Your Future Story should set the stage for each person to become a hero, be productive and successful. 


Start with a compelling picture of what’s to come and a practical plan that shows how it will work. That kickstarts a period of high team interest, followed by high growth. With a strong foundation for your Future Story in place, you can accomplish, well, anything. Anything less won’t earn the commitment you need.

The Value of Story

People are always ready for a good story—including your clients, prospects, employees, partners, and board members. In times of immense change, stories help people understand what’s happened, what’s possible, and what it means to them. If leaders share stories based on careful design of how the future may unfold, resistance relaxes and commitments rise. The end game? Faster, traction and longer-lasting alignment in a new direction.
