Make your stories work better together!

Storytelling leadership: collaborative story strategy and culture for leaders, teams, and brands

  • Abolish boring, complexity, and jargon-monoxide!

  • Inspire playfulness and innovation.

  • Engage your teams, employees and customers with strategic, collaborative storytelling!

I help people become purposeful storytellers who dream big, have fun, and drive change!

A playful storytelling culture means employees tell and live the big brand story, and use it to collaborate on new marketing, service, content and product ideas, and to create great customer and employee experiences that make peoples’ lives better. That’s the power of “social” storytelling. Blending business strategy and applied improvisation, we make storytelling more agile, collaborative, and engaging.

Incorporating elements of improv to stretch the boundaries of how we approach content for our organization was such a great way to bring fresh thinking and perspective to the work we do. Content doesn’t have to be purely functional, and Kathy’s workshop helped us to see the evolving role of content and its capabilities for brand building and creative brand expression. Highly recommend!”
