Lead Story Retreat

Imagine learning:

  • How to harness others to join a challenging task – where they are excited by the challenge
  • How to attract and keep the best talent – because they see and feel your vision
  • How to restore confidence to try a new technique – because you’ve seen it work
  • How to jump start solutions to complex challenges – already seeing possibilities

Leaders are constantly looking for ways to solve problems that work, yet in the rush of things, keep reaching for the tools they know – even when they don’t produce the results desired. Lead Story is different.

Lead Story is designed as a two-day retreat that brings together senior leaders or senior and mid-level leaders. In it you will realize how to

  • capture people’s imaginations,
  • unite them to achieve audacious goals,
  • develop 21st century qualitative skills that allow you to tackle complex problems,
  • convey your organizational values and vision in a way that inspires people to flock to your company, and
  • how to tap into your own personal inspirational system.

Imagine for yourself what others have achieved.

  • One leadership team completed their plan in one fourth the expected time.
  • Recruitment reported that best candidates were now saying yes.
  • Leaders began collaborating without losing control of their own goals.
  • The transition team gained fresh perspectives, the staff were galvanized, and productivity soared.

Lead Story has been honed to what one client calls ‘perfection’ and has brought the program in each year for eight years running. Designed to have solid impact, participants leave with real skills as well as an enthusiasm with staying power.

Entirely story-based, the program uses the power of story in subtle ways that win over the most ‘rational’ in the crowd. Using story-based techniques is more than business as usual. The design can handle as few as 12 and as many as 112.

If you are interested in energizing yourself and your leaders to higher and higher performance, invigorating innovation within staff, or building leadership capacity, invite us to bring Lead Story to your Leadership team.
