On May 27, my guest will be Christopher Kogler he founder and CEO of NarrativeIQ. Chris mentors some of the world’s top business leaders helping them discover & tell strategic business stories that inspire their employees and customers to action. Leaders’ strategies don’t just spring to life, they stick.
Early in his career Chris worked in television as the Creative Director for New York City’s world class cultural institution, Thirteen/WNET. During his 16 award-winning years at WNET, he developed his love of stories and his storytelling skills garnered 5 Emmy Awards and numerous international kudos. Clients included GE, GM, ABC and HBO.
In 2006, he founded STI Consulting. His goal was to build on his TV storytelling experience and work with companies changing the world. In 8 years, he has spearheaded change management initiatives, helped create a web design agency, led a state recognized business incubator & counseled clean tech entrepreneurs in such diverse areas as smart grid technology, food waste recycling & tidal energy. He enjoys helping companies succeed by teaching them how to discover and narrate their unique value proposition.
Today, he’s building upon this work and his love of storytelling by partnering with the international consulting firm, Anecdote, and incorporating their outstanding 6 month programs, Storytelling for Leaders and Storytelling for Sales, into his consulting practice. These programs help leaders in large and small organizations develop their story skills so they can effectively inspire and engage their troops to take action. In the process, their personal business stories humanize the corporation.
