Put the Art and Science of 'Your Possible' to Work for You and Your Organization

What We Do

While technology accelerates, giving you massive new levers, has your imagination leaped ahead as far? StoryWork International brings you a new model for imagining your possibilities. The tool is not new but its application is. The vehicle to unlock 'Your Possible' is story.

  • Story, properly employed, can open our minds to opportunities unavailable through incremental, linear thinking.
  • Story uniquely activates imagination, solves problems, builds commitment, and reveals paths that would otherwise go unnoticed.
  • Those who understand how to master the human narrative will be profoundly positioned to lead, to heal, and to envision a better world that is capable of fulfilling all of our deepest aspirations.
