UPLIFT: Igniting and Uniting with Strategy & Storytelling 

Business strategies are all fine and good, but who really remembers them? Strategy has true staying power when we turn these mandates into missions: missions that are vital to society. Missions that we believe in. Missions that we commit to for the world.

This one-day workshop is specifically designed for senior leadership teams AND their chief communicators to take together. We demonstrate how leaders and communicators can partner to transform organizations. First, we amplify business strategy with the rallying cry of Purpose and Principles. Then, with powerful storytelling, we ignite and unite teams, customers, and media around a compelling quest.

Leaders and communicators will walk away with:

• The foundation for the senior leadership team’s communications strategy.
• Your organization’s purpose statement, declaration of principles, heritage story, and quest.
• A proven model of strategic partnership between leaders and their communicators

Leaders and communicators will walk away with:
