Anecdote helps you harness the natural power of stories to bring your strategy to life. We help you tell your strategic story and then engage your employees in the strategic process so everyone has a hand in creating it. The result is a strategy everyone understands in concrete, specific terms where the level of commitment to its achievement is vastly increased.
We apply four specialties to bring your strategy to life.
Anecdote trains and coaches leaders to find and tell their stories to influence, persuade and communicate more effectively, and to provide a coherent path when times are turbulent.
Anecdote facilitates complex change initiatives by balancing the nuts and bolts of what needs to be done with insight into what’s really going on and through engaging emotions to create a resolve among your people to take action.
Anecdote delivers leadership development programs that enable leaders to conclude for themselves the essential traits of a leader and starts them off on their own personal change journey and then act as a powerful model for employees.
We help our clients be more effective and resilient through developing their capabilities to work collaboratively, in teams, in communities of people with shared interest and expertise, and across diverse networks.
NB: For our regular readers you might be wondering why we are explaining what we do in a blog post. We just wanted to make sure people could find our services around making strategies stick and our four speciality areas.
