Your Company Story
Your organization has a heroic nature. As a human being, you are built for heroics and you’ve built your company to be heroic. Since accepting its call to adventure, your company has been aided by allies and mentors, educated through a road of trials, and rewarded with wisdom and treasure. Throughout the life of your organization, there will be one primary hero’s journey arc in play. We want to hang a picture frame around that story, so that every viewer immediately knows if your story feels like home.
Uncover Your Company’s Primary Hero’s Journey
Your company holds a collection of stories, desperate to be woven together.
Every individual within your company is guided by a me story, your teams adopt we stories, and your overall culture is attempting to tell a unified us story. Bringing your organization into alignment is a process of weaving together the me, we, and us stories into a single narrative that authentically expresses the heart of your company today, while also expressing how your company aspires to be of service tomorrow. To determine your primary hero’s journey story, we engage in a two-part process:
Tease out the stories of those who are most individually influential.
Aggregate the stories of those who influence en masse.

This story can then be amplified across mediums as your central story through continued work with us or with a traditional marketing company.
