We found making the connection between your personal story and that of the organisation particularly inspiring.'Make an appointment
Employee 1-2-3 ambassador programme
You want your employees to feel connected to your company and to bring values and ambitions to life. Success is based on a strong feeling of togetherness, of being part of the company and connected to the employee story. You want employees to be able to discover, tell and share their personal employee stories to inspire one another. You want your employee story to be supported by a wide range of personal employee stories.
One of the specific aspects of storytelling that is becoming increasingly important is: creating ambassadors who continually spread the story of your company. For this, we have developed a customized workshops program of 1-2-3 workshops.
The ambassador program consists of 3 sessions of 4 hours each. This set-up is essential to connect employees around the story and to give them the confidence and skills to work on the story and storytelling themselves. Furthermore, with a specific assignment, the ambassador program focuses on retrieving “employee stories” from the organization. These new stories are important to inspire the organization with the new story right from the start. Some of these stories can also be used for external communication.
This programme inspires employees to develop a strong unifying employee story: the core employee story. It motivates them to discover, tell and share their personal employee stories and to bring your corporate story to life with their inspiring personal employee storytelling.
An organisation without a story is an organisation without an identity. In this programme, you will learn how to define and further develop your corporate story step by step. Three goals are realised during the workshop:
- Developing the employee story in connection with the corporate story. Who are we, what do we stand for, what do we want to achieve? Based on the principle of the Golden Circle, we gain clarity on the Why, How and What of your organisation, and on how to link this to the personality, positioning and perspective of your organisation and employees.
- Telling employee stories. The ability to touch people’s hearts and minds makes for a stronger brand. How does storytelling work within the context of your organisation? We will discover and document your personal stories. The stories connect with the Why, the mission, vision and the core values of the organisation. Make your employees partners in your dreams and values, and this emotional power source will spread the fire.
Results of the programme
The programme opens up a wealth of insights. Participants in the workshop experience the power of storytelling. The result: consistent communication of your total story with the corporate story as the central unifying force in the organisation. With corporate storytelling, your story is brought to life in the hearts and minds of employees and customers alike. Your company’s social significance becomes visible and tangible. Your employees are able to identify with your company story. The effort spent on building trust pays off in increased meaning. You will be rewarded by your employees. They will become ‘ambassadors’, ensuring that your story is told over and over again.
Our storytelling workshops are in-company and can be adapted to your needs in terms of the number of participants and if desired on location in Amsterdam, Brussels, London or Munich.
