Your team needs structure!

Core values & purpose are the foundation of strategy and decision-making:

In my 30+ years leading natural product businesses, nonprofits, workshops and business retreats, I’ve discovered that many brand founders and owners often take core company values for granted. 

They assume that their values will permeate through the company and will automatically be adopted by their team members. They think their values will suffuse throughout their marketing materials so that customers simply ‚Äúintuit‚ÄĚ what they stand for.

Tragically, this is not the case.

It takes dedicated effort to bring all your team on board with strong, bold, resonant company values, and it takes even more to identify and implement a company-wide strategy and a meaningful purpose that impacts the world.

Well-organized and engaging corporate training in core values and mission or purpose is pivotal. I deliver strong training sessions that build foundations for company strength, devoted employees, and aligned customers.

Share Your (Compelling) Story: Master the Skill of Story for Transparency & Accountability

(1 or 2 half-day sessions)

If your customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders don't know your story, they're unlikely to trust you. They want to know where you come from and what you stand for.

Developing your core values and identifying and implementing purpose into your company's framework is actionable and right. Now, it's time to share your story so that your customers can understand how you align with their values, how you're working through challenges, and what your goals are.

Your team members are your ambassadors. In this workshop, your team will learn the story-crafting skills that combine factual data with compelling value alignment. They'll discover how to develop your company's story and how to share it to attract and galvanize your customers and clients with consistency, inspiration, and trust.

A Note From Holly

Long before founding Selle LLC, I became an herbalist while earning a Master’s Degree in Public Administration concentrating in Environmental Policy. Ever the entrepreneur, I launched a number of herbal businesses, including a retail apothecary and an herbal medicine school. Publishers found me and asked me to write books, and I’ve since published 7 books in 3 languages, along with a book of personal transformation philosophy.

Concurrent with entrepreneurship, I jumped into nonprofits and became an executive, leading human service, education, and environmental organizations where I took on strategy, purpose, programming, and finance.

It’s now been 30 years that I’ve supported nonprofits and natural and organic businesses … guiding companies with workshops and retreats, curriculum and lectures, celebrating change, providing leadership support, and helping to make a truly positive, Earth-happy and women-empowered impact. What encourages me the most is seeing leaders embrace ethical business for the sake of the environment and the communities around us.

For me, it all comes together with mission, vision, values, and purpose. Helping companies foster ideals through strategy is the best way I can make the world a better place.
