You have a vision. You know what change you want to make in the world. You are are a master at your craft. But telling people what you do and why it matters is hard. You know that without a clear definition of your work and purpose, you know you haven't fully embodied the cultural leader that you are.


In this workshop, you’ll learn the story-informed process that guides you to language that:

• Defines your work.
• Enables confident decision-making.

• Communicates where you’re going.


This is not a lecture or a presentation. It’s a workshop. Come ready with camera on to talk, discuss, write, reflect, and participate.
