20 experts on storytelling in organizations
Stories help us understand the culture
of an organization and change it

When we lived in tribes the culture was born around the campfire. Our ancestors listened to the stories of the elders of the tribe, and from these stories everyone understood how to act, what is "Good" and "Bad" in their tribe. Nowadays modern Aboriginal tribesmen still take 80% of time around the campfire to listen to stories, because for them it is a valuable source of knowledge about the tribe and the world around them.

Since then, we have gone far ahead: we’ve learned how to measure culture using questionnaires, influence values through the introduction of new management practices, determine the level of culture with spiral dynamics and so on.

But the stories have never lost their power. After all, every time the leader starts telling about the moment when he was sincerely proud of something your colleague did, we put aside our spears, sit down by the fire and start listening. Because this story helps us find the answer to the most important question: "Why is it worth to behave like this in our tribe?”

But here’s the thing. We’ve learned to implement culture management practices purposefully and consciously, but we rarely approach stories in that manner. What would we be able to create if we chose to listen to the stories we tell and work with them purposefully?

We invited experts who have been helping organizations
work with stories for more than 15 years
At “Storify Your Culture” conference real practitioners
will share how to use the power of stories to:
Transmit values in such a way that teammates have a clear understanding what "Good" and "Bad" means in your company
Turn the vision and strategy into a sincere story that invites engagement, not bewilderment
Adapt new employees to the culture and engage them from the beginning
Create the basis of any innovation – an atmosphere of psychological security
Define and articulate an engaging purpose and mission statement that won’t feel flat and forced
Nurture the culture of continuous learning and development
Help team leaders notice and grow the culture of their teams
Achieve sustainable results by working with the company's culture

Many believe that a story affects culture only if it is told by a leader. But we have repeatedly observed how stories from employees not only reflected the existing culture of the company, but also laid the foundations for a new culture. Yes, one story will never change the culture of an entire company. But the tools and techniques from this conference will help you tell stories more consciously and consistently to influence the culture of your organization, regardless of your position and status.
