Storybold – finding vision and clarity
Storybold has emerged from the first step in our micro-documentary film making (where we get together to distill the essence of your story).
During 2018, we were asked by a client to run a simple coaching package – to help a founder and leader get her story straight. And in doing, really put some power behind her voice and written words. From clarity and simplicity things flow, communication flows. We know our stories, but tend to make them way more complex than is needed. We often cannot see the wood for the trees. And that turned out to be exactly the coaching needed. From this simple start we are offering Storybold Coaching. Others are picking it up and engaging us to provide this simple new service. The nice thing is that it comes directly from what we have created with our approach with 101visions micro-documentary. Storybold is simply an evolution of the the first step in creating a short C-Level film.
How clear is your narrative for your business in 2019? How clear is the story you are telling for your new project? Unless you are 100% clear right now, you will very likely massively benefit from our Storybold coaching package. You commit up to 2 hours. We commit 5 hours. Chances are within a few days you will have a touchstone for all your communications that will save you big as the year unfolds.
It happens like this:
STEP 1 – skype or zoom exploratory call
STEP 2 – during next few days we run a collaborative process to create the main narrative.
STEP 3 – how can we immediately apply the new vision and narrative and bring it to life.
If this might be a help to you right now, engage with us and lets see if we can work together on your bold new story.
We are an ambitious busy start-up and it was great to pause for a few hours and focus on purpose and the bigger picture. We successfully co-created a new vision and narrative that has already fundamentally changed our website direction. We can now guide our internal work and way more easily communicate with stakeholders…Matt
Storybold is rapid and immediately practical package if you want to put some clarity and power into your communications. Wild Aligned – deeper and bespoke coaching is emergent so get in touch if you are ready to have conversation about deeper changes in your business. Carbon Balanced status is the solid start point of a deeper journey towards greater alignment with the truth of nature at three systems levels:
Level 1 – is looking at all the relationships between your business and the biosphere. To ensure you are doing all you can to ensure the intregity of the wild and natural that remains and underpins.
Level 2 – is where we being to extend what we mean by ‘wild’ to include human nature. Wild meaning not something to be pushed down or suppressed or managed, but a state of honesty and being true to our own natures. Level 2 is about how we relate to each other in a non polarised way that brings out the best in our true nature.
Level 3 is where we find ways to bring the process of wild alignment right home. Where we align within our selves as individuals, bringing our deepest needs and desires into alignment with our work.
Micro-documentary – on C-Levels 101visions channel
What started as a request from a social enterprise in the Himalayas to help with their communications, led to the creation of C-Level’s first micro-documentary.
This has led to the development of C-Level’s own film channel called 101visions. We have made short films to raise the profile of the Plan Vivo projects which deliver our Carbon Balancing. The team has also delivered a growing number of pro-bono short films for visionary projects.
Our team do things very differently in the film making space. We bring understanding of sustainability narratives together with film making expertise. And our approach to each film is unusual. For example we are happy to work firstly with a partners existing visual materials or to guide a partner to do there own filming. So less flying, smaller budgets, and faster turnaround (not to mention down with carbon). But the team we have means that whatever and wherever your film making needs, if the project matters to us, we can meet them.
The first really nice thing about all of this is that projects are ending up with independent films that everyone in the project ecosystem can share easily. The second is that feedback so far from partners has been 100% positive.
So just to be really clear. We work with you to create a strong independent narrative. We make maximum use of existing visual assets, creating viable new high quality films in weeks not months. Check out our 101visions channel.
