Randy left a meeting shaking his head, concerned that the business team was jumping into problem solving before they had adequately defined the problem at hand. As a scientist, he knew that a lot of questions needed to be explored—along with technical, business, and consumer data to assimilate—before it would make sense to pursue solutions. If only he could redirect the team to focus on clarifying the problem, he was certain that they could find a technical solution to help solve the business challenge.
Storlietelling helps clients, like Randy and his team, solve technical and creative problems that unlock business growth by designing and facilitating customized sessions for collaboration around innovation and other business challenges. We can help you drill into the root cause of the problem and clarify the problem to solve.

“Innovate with Stories” Training helps business leaders, consultants, and facilitators incorporate storytelling and story listening into their work and influence communications. It provides practical tools and techniques to enable the use of stories during creative collaboration. Participants learn story techniques for different facets of innovation: visioning, exploring and clarifying the problem, ideation, and prototyping and testing, as well as pitching innovative opportunities to stakeholders and executives. Storlietelling also offers business storytelling workshops to help professional audiences learn how to weave stories into their business communications.
Theme-Based Sessions unify a meeting experience through an umbrella theme that can be lightly infused or applied to all visual elements and group activities. Stories, metaphors, music, and props can be used to bring the theme to life. Theme-based sessions deliver a memorable team experience, inspire creativity, and boost output.
