I have worked with over 6000 CEOs, and many of their teams, to develop better stories so they produce better results. These stories affect our culture, engagement, brand, ability to sell, and career opportunities. When people have the right stories, like the ones that work with reality, life is good. When they have the wrong stories, they fight reality and get frustrated, anxious, and angry. It’s what I call becoming a negative hero. The intentions may be good, but the outcomes are not.
Ever since I was a trial lawyer, I noticed there could be only one set of facts about a thing, only one reality, and yet people would have a dozen different stories about it. As I dove deeper into this, I learned we collect many stories, and they often block our full potential.
Once I got the power of this insight, I began to purposely design my stories, and my personal and professional life dramatically changed! I went from being divorced, burnt out, and broke, to a happy and successful person. Now, I have this wonderful ability to help my fellow executives and their companies transform by getting better stories too!
What makes me unique, is the ability to move past the apparent logic of a situation, and listen to discover deeper and often simpler causes. For example, one of the most damaging stories is the need to assert control over a situation. Unfortunately, that story limits our opportunity and causes people to reject us. The good news is, as with most wrong stories, there is a way out, and you can replace it with the right story. The goal is for you to the hero in a story of your own design!
The bottom line is I love my work, and so do my clients, because we produce results. How would you like to get together and learn how I can help you?
