Introducing The Narrative House: co-creating ambition, strategy and culture with clarity and humanity

Today, we’re extremely pleased to announce the launch of The Narrative House, Inc., a creative consulting firm that helps companies of all sizes co-create ambition, strategy and culture.

Founded by Layla Kajer and Jeremy Morgan, both formerly of Bonfire and Lippincott/Oliver Wyman, The Narrative House will service healthcare, technology, energy, hospitality and financial services clients from our offices in the San Francisco Bay Area and Denver.

We established The Narrative House to address some of the most common challenges facing leadership teams today: how to create a clear, distinctive and purpose-rich statement of ambition; where to focus time and resources against this North Star; and how to foster a vibrant, agile and inclusive culture that engages great talent while supercharging execution.

The Narrative House uses skilfull facilitation to align leadership teams around strategic decisions – then turns those decisions into narrative-driven content and beautiful creative that inspire employee commitment. We also have deep experience in the creation of employee participation programs, from manager communities to crowdsourcing.

Layla and Jeremy are building on a track record of success with a diverse array of companies including Genentech/Roche, Merck, International Hotels Group (IHG), Gore, Bank of the West, T. Rowe Price, Salesforce, Informatica, GE, 3M and many more. We’ve also worked extensively with individual leaders and leadership teams to define and improve group relationships and dynamics.

At the heart of The Narrative House’s ambition is the desire to make corporate culture more effective by giving it greater humanity. In particular, we want to improve employees’ sense of personal impact and productivity by advocating for empathetic leadership, clearer communication and more inclusive workplaces.
