Who I am, and why I want to help you succeed.

A couple of years ago, I was coaching a salesperson whose job was to sell tooth-friendly candy to supermarkets. When I asked her, "Tell me about the products you sell", I expected a list of facts and figures.

Instead, she told me a story.

She told me about how the founders of her company were two dentists; about how they'd noticed that their kids loved candies, and the candies were beginning to cause tooth decay. So the two founders searched local supermarkets for healthier, friendlier sweets that would reverse tooth decay while still bringing joy to their children.

Faced with limited options, the two dentists decided they owed it to their children to create the company she now worked for.

As she told me this, I could see how deeply the story resonated with her. It gave her job a meaning and purpose. It gave her a sense of mission in a way no mission statement would.

I believe that if leaders learn to tell better stories, employees will feel energized and inspired in the work they do.

What I've discovered after almost a decade of working with companies across the globe is that a story is the single best asset a company can have.

Unfortunately, it's also the least well-developed asset in many organizations.

My purpose is to change that.
