Combining Storytelling, Empathy, and Purpose to help people develop their leadership

Leadership development through storytelling

The Inspiring Speaking


We envision a world where people are fulfilled with the work they do, with their relationships, and with themselves.

We believe your ability to communicate ideas effectively has a direct impact on your career, relationships, and income.

Luckily, communication is a skills that can be developed. It can be learned and taught.

Since your mindset, past experiences, and knowledge, define the things you say, it's possible to identify what holds you back by paying attention to your language.

That's why empathetically listening is at the core of what we do, constantly listening beyond what the person says, looking to understand how they feel.

Once you do, you'll be able to understand how you can truly help others grow. Giving you insights into what they desire. Making it easy for others to see why they need to take action on your message.

And lastly, bring the two elements together by sharing a story that allows people to transform themselves, connecting emotionally with the story so that they can realize by themselves why they need to take action.

The Origin


From: Juan Guerra
Vienna, Austria

Ever since I can remember, I've been fascinated by trying to understand why people say the things they say. But in 2011, everything changed for me.

I had to deliver a 5 minute presentation.

For 2 days I was living in fear, wondering why did I put myself in that situation. 

Finally the moment came.

As I started, my voice barely came out, within seconds my mind went blank, and my friend had to jump in to finish the presentation for me while I almost passed out in front of the just 10 people in the room.

As I walked out of the room, I realized I was in trouble.

That day, in that moment I promised myself never to be in that position again...

So since that day, I've said yes to any opportunity I had to speak in public. In the beginning, I sucked, big time! And people told me too, but then, with time, I began to get better at it. 

Next thing I knew, I started to get invited to speak in different countries, different cultures, different languages.

To this day I've delivered events in places like Iran, Norway, Georgia, Israel, Austria, Spain and about 10 more countries. I've spoken in front of more than 15,000 people combined, and my life, personally and professionally has been impacted directly because of it.

But it was in October 2014, in Poland, where at the end of my talk somebody came to me and said, "Juan, thank you for sharing your story, I've been struggling with a decision for 4 months and now I know exactly what to do."

In that moment, I understood the power of storytelling to impact people's lives.

Some of the organizations I've worked with since...

And many more...
