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.
Learn how to chart a more intentional course to steer your organization in more profitable directions by capitalizing on your Narrative Intelligence.
Learn how to create a sustainable business future by engaging teams in new and meaningful ways, thereby helping individuals realize their highest potential.

Accelerate Leaders' Ability to Produce Breakthrough Results
StoryWork International is devoted to taking the power of story to a new level of impact—unlocking the human spirit of creativity, innovation, and collaboration.
Prospective thinking in which we look forward in time to envision and create a coherent and compelling narrative of a better future is a frontier that we must master if we are to elevate our possibilities and realize our full potential. With the proper guidance, leaders can learn this new skill that can pay unimagined dividends.
To this end, StoryWork International has created an invaluable approach to accelerate leaders’ ability to tap the potential of their people, of their organizations, and of themselves to discover and realize ‘their Possible’ and produce breakthrough results.
