When I had just started my career, I got a valuable piece of advice from my editor. He said,
“If you cannot meet someone in person, then try a phone call. If you cannot connect on phone, then email. If that is not possible too, try texting. Good stories only come out when we connect with people in person.”
In a world of Slack messages and WhatsApp groups, are we building genuine communities? Are we able to nurture relationships in the personal or professional areas of our lives? The answer is - Yes and No. From my personal experience, I can tell you that people are the best safety net in a challenging situation. If you invest in them, they will invest back in you. And if they can’t invest back, they will carry your good name wherever they go. This is how big empires are built and leaders are born. This is how memorable stories are engraved.
How I do this
Are you having a problem building a memorable story for your company? My customised workshops bring together people from different backgrounds in one room and make them connect to each other. The product designer, marketing expert, salesperson, founder and hard-core techie on your team - these guys are the pillars of your company and they should define together your brand voice. I will help you bind the thread between these pillars and guide you in how to demonstrate your story to the stakeholders.
