The personal and team transformation you’ll experience with ThirdStory Revolution can’t be achieved in a workshop – too boring! We’re not lecturers; and you’re not in school. We’re all professionals here and you deserve better than that. You learn by doing, by experiencing, by experimenting in live situations. . . just like you do in a lab. You try something, you fail, you try again, you grow, you iterate, you transform what’s possible.

We’ve got six storytelling labs for you and your team. So, how will you transform yourself today?

Storytelling for Personal Transformation

Who’s this for?
Individual contributors, new managers, and aspiring leaders who want to make more impact; stargazers who want to fully harness their power.

How it works:
In this lab we help you identify the limiting beliefs that are holding you back. We transform the story that is stopping you (shadow) from reaching your potential into a powerful, compelling, authentic story (flare) that allows you to thrive.

What this lab helps you do:
Build self-awareness
• Align your personal values with your work
• Discover your intrinsic motivation and purpose
• Fine-tune your personal brand
• Practice self-healing


Storytelling for Interpersonal Communication

Who’s this for?
Everyone within the organization.

How it works:
Corporate speak is the quickest way to de-motivate people and suppress energy in the workplace. What if we replaced acronyms and business jargon with language that sparks magic and creativity? What if we stopped initiating conversations with the “what” and started focusing on the “why”? This lab redirects and transforms how modern professionals interact with each other.

What this lab helps you do:
Elevate and energize interpersonal dialogue
• Enliven meetings and data presentations
• Improve the flow of information and reduce organizational silos
• Increase organizational transparency
• Build connective tissue with one’s peers and customer base


Storytelling for Inclusive Leadership

Who’s this for?
Leaders – managers, executives, company founders – who want to be transformational.

How it works:
In this lab we help you discover, own, and share your leadership story to build trust and deepen connections with your team. The result? You are more inspiring, influential, and empowered to motivate your team to greatness.

What this lab helps you do:
Learn to use stories to empower others
• Harness the power of public vulnerability
• Model empathy, curiosity, and compassion
• Give permission to others to tell their stories
• Validate everyone’s lived experiences as true


Storytelling for Team Dynamics

Who’s this for?
Teams and any corporate collection of human bodies.

How it works:
The most challenging aspect of leading a team is getting multiple people to work synchronistically. When teams leverage their collective superhero talents, the group becomes a balanced system that can affect positive change.

What this lab helps you do:
Build high performing teams
• Foster greater innovation and creativity
• Ignite micro-connections where people champion each other
• Minimize distraction, disruption, and attrition


Storytelling for Diversity and Inclusion

Who’s this for?
Everyone within the organization.

How it works:
Knowing the importance of “diversity and inclusion” doesn’t create understanding. Rather than relying on “ole skool” training that exacerbates tensions and sidesteps meaningful conversations, we create the space for people to learn from each other in a real and authentic way. Stories create a context for building support and addressing inequities that exist within the organization.

What this lab helps you do:
Recognize how diversity impacts leadership and organizational dynamics
• Learn how to appreciate and leverage cultural differences
• Understand the behaviors and leadership competencies that support inclusion


Storytelling for Belonging

Who’s this for?
Organizations that value every member of their community.

How it works:
Belonging is not just about association; it is about being seen and heard and valued. Belonging creates the belief that everyone is essential to the organization’s success. Belonging, then, is both a personal and collective journey. In this lab, we use story to create an enduring sense of community.

What this lab helps you do:
Understand the power of your own story
• Listen to and understand other people’s stories
• Assess where you are on the allyship journey
• Learn how to build dynamic, inclusive communities
