Elevate the innovators within your company, bond them together through their stories, and establish the depth of trust between them that propels your organization into a new future.

Every company relies on high-performing teams to overcome obstacles together—teams of people who trust and respect one another deeply, demonstrate confidence in their talents, give and receive feedback well, and resolve conflict efficiently.

“I am hearing overwhelmingly positive comments from one associate after another about the difference the course is making for them. Big, big thank you, Corey and RTC, for all your AMAZING work here.”

Drew Clancy
CEO, Publishing Concepts, Inc.

The RTC Storytelling Course for High-Performing Teams

This course leverages the power of storytelling for both personal and team development. Within a collective group, each team member will transform their own sense of identity by awakening the hero within as they witness the heroism in those around them. In turn, entire teams enrolled in our storytelling classes are tightly bonded together as each employee’s heroic nature and superpowers are made visible to the group.

Which then begs the question, “What can we heroically accomplish together?”

Unlock Innovation by Unearthing Your Team’s Superpowers

“I didn't realize how much the people that I worked with loved and cared about me. I didn't know that level of love existed with people that you work with virtually, but that's exactly what I got when I shared my story. And I got people that were brave themselves. They got on camera and they read their stories, and I got to listen to theirs, and we just grew closer.”

Holly Hewitt
Inside Sales Manager

Throughout these classes, your team(s) will learn about a storytelling structure known as the hero’s journey and be guided through step-by-step lessons on how to correlate moments from their own life into a heroic tale, until they arrive at a 10- to 15-minute story that authentically showcases who they are and who they are becoming.

Committing your team to this transformative process catalyzes a greater sense of purpose in both their personal and professional lives, a purpose steeped in vulnerability, authenticity, and integrity.

Graduates of our Unearth classes emerge from this experience as an A-team of heroes—confident in who they are individually and together, how they can contribute, and who they are still becoming as their next adventure with your company unfolds.

“It's just been so much growth for me, not only as a salesperson and as an employee, but as a person.”
