We’ve heard a lot of trumpeting about the virtues of remote work in the last 2 years… expanded flexibility, increased productivity, decreased overhead expenses. But besides the decrying of “Zoom fatigue,” we’re not talking enough about what this new world of virtual work is costing us.

1. Use Intention and Creativity to Drive Human Connection

What’s it like for employees to go months at a new job without ever meeting their colleagues in person? How do teams rally around a shared purpose when they’re not telling stories in the hallway, or seeing each other’s successes and lessons first-hand?

Organizations are made up of humans, who have a deep need for connection and a sense of purpose. That need can be fulfilled in a virtual world of work, but not without intention and creativity. It simply won’t happen by accident, and organizations that fail to pay attention to this need are putting themselves at massive risk when it comes to building and maintaining connected, fulfilled, and profitable teams.

2.  Rally Your Team Around Their Shared Purpose

At The Stasko Agency, we’ve been diligently designing the antidote to this emerging problem of disconnected, disengaged teams. We call it Your Evolution Story (YES), and it leverages the power of storytelling to provide what we’re all yearning for: connection and purpose.

None of us has emerged from the last 2 years without a story to tell. Your Evolution Story will help your team see, shape, and share their stories, individually and collectively. 

3.  Propel Your Team into the Future… Together

Through a designed experience available as individual sessions and team workshops, we lead your team on a journey of discovery, helping them mine their experience for the story of their evolution and then share that story with others. We’ll also help your team write a new collective story that rallies them around a shared purpose and propels them into the future… together.

It’s a win for your team, for your organization, and for humans.

If you’re ready to give your people what they want (connection and purpose), let’s connect.

 

Many of us have had to shift our business strategies or evolve how we do business over the last year. I have found that more and more of my clients are trying to find a way to tell the story of that evolution.  Spurred by demand for that service, I recently partnered with a few bad-ass colleagues to form the YES (Your Evolution Story) Story Squad, and we are making it our mission to help businesses mine their experiences of the last year so they can see, shape, and share their evolution stories with the world.

Our unique YES process is designed to help business owners overcome the challenges that often accompany a big change. We help you:

  • Discover and connect your new story with your “why” and what’s important to you now.
  • Rally your team around a shared vision of who you are now.
  • Engage your team to tell their new story and a shared vision of who they are now.
  • Share your story with the media/press and your current and future customers in a condensed, easy-to-access format.
  • Clarify your marketing message and uncover new emerging market opportunities.
  • Identify new possibilities for your work/business and define next steps.

The YES Story Squad includes a Visual Strategist, Narrative Storyteller, Strategic Publicist, and Social Media Orchestrator.  With our expert guidance, you’ll be able to see and celebrate your company and how you serve your customers now. You’ll have a renewed sense of connection with your customers, and the confidence and clarity that will allow you to see new opportunities to expand your customer base and the value you provide your community.
