Every day, there are many stories being told in our workplaces. Every anecdote we tell, every strategy we articulate, every policy we implement, is a story unto itself. But only when we weave the tapestry of all those stories together can we begin to experience the meaning of the journey we’re on. That is the fundamental job of leaders – to be the narrators of their businesses. Leaders must listen to individual stories and help everyone identify with the narrative of where the business is headed.
• Critical junctures
• Successes and challenges
• The grit of experience
• Emotional sweep
• Voice and spirit of the people
• Connection to values
• Character of company
Narrative skill can be developed and is requisite for outstanding leadership. It all begins with story. Stories call up the meaning we crave as human beings. And meaning is an essential nutrient of our lives and our enterprises. We hunger for the leader who first recognizes the meaningfulness of stories and can then weave them together, giving voice to the overarching journey of our lives. Stories taken together form a narrative that is richer and stronger than each of its strands.
Story yields Narrative
Narrative yields Meaning
Meaning yields Alignment
Alignment yields Performance

“I am still astounded at how the acting world is so completely tied to human thinking, action and leadership. Keep investigating and connecting those dots. The TAI program was by far the most impactful training in my career.”
50% of the mid-level managers who participated in a TAI High Potential program were promoted within 18 months.
“During the 18 months that I worked with TAI, I was promoted twice – the second promotion being to COO of the company. TAI was absolutely instrumental in me advancing to my current role. The tools, implementation and vision they provide are outstanding.”
