Start with stories
The more we digitalise, the more we value our authenticity and our humanity. In how we act and think. These are the values found in your life stories.
Why does a customer choose you? Why do you fall for that that one job applicant? Why does your team follow you? Why does a certain speaker stay top of mind? Inspiration! Being able to motivate others to take action through your story.
Which stories do you wear?
They touch me with their raw stories and inspire me with the answers we reveal. And then? Hence the work of the Story Tailor begins. Together with them, we transform their story material. Creative and with guts! Identity, meaning and purpose go hand in hand.
You are who you are supposed to be and do what you are meant to do. Authentic. Your environment is inspired.
Tell your impact story!
Or a team of HRM Lecturers who, after following a storytelling workshop, came up with brilliant ideas on how to replace boring meetings with storytelling sessions. And, how to use the story, the HR hero of the future, as a vision story.
Suffice to say, as a professional you cannot offer content without your unique story. Working with me means learning which story to tell (f, how, where, for whom and when. More meaning, more authenticity, more impact. Your Impact Story.
You choose and are chosen because of your impact stories!
From stories to sense to strategy
I was looking for a job for quite a while. Even though I knew I was good in what I do, I could not translate it to a proper motivation letter and as a result, I was not called back for interviews. It was frustrating. When I met Waheeda my life changed. It might sound cheesy but that is how it really was.
With just telling a few stories about myself, she helped me discovered who I was and which forces are really driving me forward – it was a real wow moment! It was a process I could never do myself and I needed Waheeda to clear that path of thought with me.
She helped me improve my motivation letter from boring to something worth sending (even did final changes very late at night), pimped my LinkedIn profile and guided me how to prepare for an interview well. And it all worked, a month and a half after our first meeting, I already had a new job!
I cannot thank her enough. With her clear guidance and friendliness, the sessions with her were confronting and yet very warm, open and valuable. Each person needs a coach like Waheeda, you’ll never know what you will find out about yourself! Einat Voordes
