Revisit your company direction and see how you can transform it through meaningful leadership.
Whether you are just starting out or already years into your business this online course is designed to help you create (or improve) your strategic narrative, understand how to use it to mobilize people, and to learn which practice and tools you’ll need for business growth.
Take this course to secure a firm foundation for your transformative business.
I’ve coached hundreds of entrepreneurs, helping them clarify their offerings and create plans and systems to grow their business. This is the course that I require all my clients to take. I recommend it to you as well, if you’d like to understand my overall strategy, marketing and leadership principles.
Be sure not to miss this course if you’ve been wondering:
- What is a strategic narrative exactly?
- Why should I build one?
- How do I do it?
- Where should I start?
- Who should do it?
What if mobilizing people was easier?
As an entrepreneur, you may have heard that you will succeed if you create a great business story that you tell as many people as possible.
As promising as this sounds, this shortcut might unfortunately lead you down a dead end.
In reality, your company has not one story but many stories. The critical question is how to organize them.
Second, you only need a relatively small number of faithful fans to form a movement that will give you a buoyant and growing momentum.
You can do this if you use your leadership skills to help the right people understand your business, support it and align with your mission. No need to make up an epic story. Instead, tell the truth and nothing but the meaningful truth.
How do you do it?
By building a strategic narrative: the system of authentic stories and actions you intentionally build to invite people to join you on your journey.
In this course, you will learn a structured leadership framework and discover simple practices. They will help you accomplish the transformation you want to create, whether it’s with your customers, your environment, or your industry as a whole.
Learn a repeatable framework: The Strategic Narrative Canvas

Attend from anywhere, anytime with the internet.
Praise from other entrepreneurs:
“The process and reasoning are well defined and make sense. There is a structure to the narrative-building process that helps break things down into meaningful chunks and allows you to focus on the key elements at the right time.”
President, ProWorks Corporation
“I found this course to be thought-provoking on a professional and personal level. I think it is a new skill that can be added to your EQ. Guillaume does a great job organizing and presenting the material in a very clear and usable way.”
Systems thinking, Haley & Aldrich
“You’ve created a very powerful and well-built framework to lead us in an intimate discovery journey that makes a lot of sense. It’s easy to understand and remember, yet invites reflection. You’ve conducted it very professionally, with a lot of possible interactions, a good balance of resources and insights shared, strict follow-up, permissions, and humor! A real masterclass!“
Owner & Principal, Senseo Leadership
“There is extreme power in working on your strategic narrative to articulate your vision and invite others to something much better, no matter where you are in your business.
The distinction between story and narrative that I learned from Guillaume has forever changed how I understand and use the concepts in my work.
