About The Heroine’s Journey Series
True creative leadership is a surprisingly rare ability, so much so that it can be tempting to regard it as innate, and consider those who possess it as somehow ‘born to lead’. Yet in truth, leadership is defined by a set of specific storytelling skills – skills like creative confidence, purpose, persuasion and resilience – that can be taught and developed over time. With organisations becoming less and less hierarchical and the changing technological and economic landscape posing a host of new challenges, mastering the skills of creative leadership has never been more difficult – or more vital.
That’s why we created the Heroine’s Journey Series: a dedicated programme of virtual coaching for existing and aspiring creative leaders – founders, co-founders, managers, creative officers, artistic directors, design leads, innovation executives and entrepreneurs – from The Heroine’s Journey for Business. The series are focusing on the 7 core storytelling skills all effective creative leaders require.
Each virtual personal coaching session is 3 hours long, covering each skill in greater depth at a more advanced level with added time for exercises and discussion. Whether you’re new to being a creative professional, searching for ways to improve, or looking to train the creative leaders of the future, the Heroine’s Journey Series is a crash course in the fundamentals of business storytelling.
