Workplace Writing

Transform Your Organization Through The Power of Storytelling

Did you know information delivered as a story is 22 times more memorable than facts alone? Though not every PowerPoint or company-wide memo needs to be a Hollywood blockbuster, it’s no secret, according to Forbes, that storytelling is a vital tool for business growth and that employees who struggle with it can lose out on critical leadership skills and offer fewer competitive advantages for your company.

What We Do:

GrubStreet’s Workplace Writing Program teaches creative storytelling skills that directly translate into inspiring leadership and increased business value.

In the ever-evolving landscape of corporate communication, the need for enhanced writing and storytelling skills has become paramount. Our clients recognize the imperative for their team members to excel in workplace communication, whether in day-to-day interactions, presentations, or engaging with clients and colleagues.

Focused on honing day-to-day writing skills, delivering impactful presentations, and fostering effective team communication, the program explores narrative techniques of storytelling and creative writing to craft compelling stories for diverse workplace situations. The program aims to achieve core objectives, such as improving writing abilities and enhancing the delivery of thoughtful, constructive peer feedback.

A structured session wrap-up ensures participants reflect on their takeaways and strategize how to apply newly acquired skills directly into their work.
