Hello,

Welcome to Clarity in Action.

This four-module, three-hour program distils critical insights from our 40+ years' of practical storylining experience by showcasing the most critical concepts as they appear ‘in action', largely through practical cases.

Each module includes a video, a handout, a challenge with solutions and some suggestions for putting storylining into practice. We will also email you each week for a month with suggestions to help you complete the program, while also inviting you to nominate a colleague who can support you on the journey.

You will also have access to our extensive list of storylining FAQs throughout.

Feel free to email us at hello@claritycollege.co if you have any questions or click here to sign up.

Regards,
Davina and Gerard

The Tale of Two Stories

This module explains how a client communicated to their Executive Committee and their Board about the same strategy.
