There are three reasons why we start by seeking out real life workplace stories: helps us understand the current culture, provides examples of what the future might look like and creates a set of examples for managers to examine and work out the behaviours to encourage or disrupt.
Can your leaders tell the story of your strategy? This is our starting point. We help your senior leaders create that story and also help them develop the skills to tell it. It’s about crafting the strategic story.
All your leaders, at all levels, need to know and be confident telling the strategic story. They will also have their variations based on their experiences, and we welcome that. So we spend time helping them learn it and get comfortable telling it. We teach your leaders to tell your strategic story.
Now we get your employees involved in the strategic process by collecting anecdotes that both illustrate where the strategy is already working (positive examples are great to motivate others about how the future could look) and where things could be better. These anecdotes become the triggers for initiatives that employees design and implement and in the process become more involved in executing the strategy.
