Leadership Narrative Experience

Lead with authenticity and inspire followership by rewriting the story of who you are as a leader

At some point in their career, many executives find themselves at a crossroads: unsure of how to continue making an impact, what their legacy will be, or what is next after reaching the top levels of leadership. They realize that they have been swept along their career path, feeling inauthentic and seeking a purpose. 

Regaining their footing will require more than skills-based executive development. 

Verity’s program helps executives take control of who they are as a leader by developing their leadership narrative: the story that is at the heart of their leadership identity.

Based on a growing body of research that demonstrates the impact of narrative on executive performance, this one-of-a-kind program gives leaders energy around a purpose and brings clarity to the road ahead.

What participants are saying

“I now have more of a sense of purpose.  It has helped me realize that I can be courageous enough to speak my truth in a professional and personal role. For me, as a visible minority, I’ve tried to minimize the differences in my behavior that shows I’m different, even though visibly I am.  Now I feel I can make more deliberate choices for myself that don’t require ascribing to the dominant culture. With my leadership narrative, I am becoming more comfortable with that.”

“Developing my leadership narrative has provided me with a clearer voice, but also the insight of where I can add value. When you’re clear about your narrative you can think about what mission you want to serve.  My leadership narrative has helped me think about what I truly want to do and what teams I do and don’t want to work with. It’s been very grounding and empowering in terms of who I am.”

“My leadership narrative provides a framework that I can instantly pull on – I’m aware of what’s important to me, I pull the strengths and weaknesses I have as a leader. It gives me a much more holistic approach to decision-making.”

Upcoming program dates

Our upcoming executive development cohorts are kicking off in:

All program sessions are scheduled based on your availability, so there is no need to worry about conflicts in your calendar. Throughout the program, we’ll send you and your peers multiple options for when group and individual coaching sessions can be scheduled, so that we can book times that work for everyone.
