At HEFT Creative Strategies, I believe in helping human beings and organizations be their best selves through story.
In recent years I've engaged in a range of coaching, training, strategic and promotional efforts for organizations such as Arc Worldwide/Leo Burnett; Green Writers Press; When Words Count Retreat; Content R|S; lylole; Jeff Pfaller, Inc., Phillip Hall Financial Consulting; Human Elements; Modern Capital Concepts; Koan; The Association of Consultants to Nonprofits; The Montana Institute and The Center for Advanced Emotional Intelligence.
Targeted to small business owners, entrepreneurs, career changers and authors, coaching entails scheduling one-on-one sessions (or group sessions for groups of like-minded professionals), to discuss mission, business goals, personal brand and story.
This opportunity starts with a commitment to four one-hour sessions (with homework in-between). This includes a reflection on process and progress at the completion of the four sessions, and a discussion of Next Steps and looking forward.
Focused on new companies, authors and those getting started with executing communications, promotion and branding strategies; this service involves exploring narrative approaches to telling your story and/or that of your organization or book.
These approaches may include crafting (or enhancing) messaging platforms; media plans; talking points; bios and organizational descriptions for your website; content for LinkedIn and other social media platforms; and marketing copy.
Concentrated on authors at work on all stages of story development from the initial seed of an idea, to an outline or draft manuscript; and moving these authors towards a completed book.
Work includes manuscript consultation and outline creation. Authors choose between a four- or eight-session commitment. Progress will be assessed at the completion of the sessions and Next Steps will be discussed. Group coaching is also available.
Applied in a variety of formats, the "Get Your Story Down" training is offered as a two-hour and half-day workshop (two one-hour workshops are also an option) or keynote session.
This training is hands-on, interactive and contains exercises that build cumulatively throughout the session as participants craft their personal narrative and explore the most effective means for sharing their stories with the world.
