Lead with Story-Connect icon

Story has the ability to command human attention, direct behavior, impact memory, and create deeply felt connection — the kind capable of compelling action.

We start by clarifying your identity to help you better understand and articulate to others who you are and why you do what you do.

Lead With Story - Engage Icon

When you share your own story — with the school board, students, caregivers, community, press, stakeholders — your audience has the option to connect and invest in the storyline, or disengage and move on.

We then uncover and employ the most compelling parts of your narrative and the characters with whom you share it.

Lead With Story - Action Icon

Story is the vehicle that travels through the brain in order to reach the heart; and when it does, it’s far more likely to prompt action.

To amplify the way you share your story, we will define what type of archetype will help driving meaning and strategies behind your message.
