Find Your “Why”

Every great story has six levels within its framework to craft a compelling tale:

  • Who – The Characters

  • Where & When – Scene and Setting

  • What – The Action

  • How – The Way the Story Unfolds

  • Why – Purpose and Motivation

Now, translate that into the story of your business. The story of a business begins with the process of understanding why you’re in business in the first place, and then communicating that message (internally and externally) in a meaningful way.

Most businesses have a clear understanding of Who (Current Staff) is working for them, and the Where/When (History and Location) about their business.

They also understand What they do (Products/Services) and How they do it (Operations). But as an organization, they rarely explore Why (Purpose/Motivation) they are even in business.

The Why is where storytelling begins and impacts the culture, talent and sustainable growth of any organization.
