WHAT WE DO
We inspire better performance and build stronger cultures by leveraging Five Level Stories.
We do this Speaking at events and running Storytelling Training and Story Activation Programs.
WHAT IS A FIVE LEVEL STORY?
The five levels are:
SPIRIT – PURPOSE
INTELLECT – LOGIC
IMAGINATION – CREATIVITY
HEART – PASSION
HANDS – ACTION
Five Level engagement makes the difference between Good and Great performance.
Turn your next conference into a transformational event by having us keynote or host.
Teach your sales and leadership teams to be better storytellers, and activate your company’s stories.
