Year of Storytelling

This year, ISPI will embark on twelve months of storytelling…The Story of ISPI. The art of understanding, listening, and telling to compelling and driving change.

As consultants, we seek to understand the problems a client faces; as researchers, we try to listen to what the data tells us and compare to trends; and as trainers, we strive to tell a story that is compelling enough to transform the way we engage with and learn from one another. Each story begins with a problem, is filled with action, and ends with real results. ISPI has a story to tell! 

ISPI recognizes that leveraging different technologies allows us to tell our story in different ways. Through our conferences and educational offerings, we will explore the art of storytelling and how it complements and strengthens any consultant’s tool box. We will also use those opportunities as well as our publications to tell the “story” of performance improvement: who we are, what we do, where we have been, and where we are going.

ISPI is more than just one story, more than just one character. Our heroes and heroines are the consultants, students, researchers, writers, practitioners and trainers who seek to understand and to strive to find a resolution. Each of these plotlines strives to tell a story that is compelling enough to transform the way we engage with and learn from one another.
