Adventures in Storytelling with Dave Bricker

Adventures in Storytelling with Dave Bricker

This week’s theme: Adventures in Storytelling

Many leaders often approach their organizations with a functional mindset, viewing them through the lens of efficiency and productivity. However, this perspective often overlooks the fundamental human aspect of organizational dynamics. People aren’t merely cogs in a wheel; they are individuals driven by emotions, aspirations, and the need for connection.

To truly motivate and engage employees, it’s essential to tap into the power of narrative or adventures in storytelling. By crafting a compelling story around the organization’s mission, values, and goals, leaders can instill a sense of purpose and belonging among their teams. People are more likely to invest themselves fully when they feel like they’re part of something meaningful and when their contributions align with a broader narrative.

Dave Bricker

As a young man, Dave Bricker was inspired by the remarkable people he met in Miami’s “secret floating village.” The sailboat anchorage a quarter-mile off-shore from Miami City Hall attracted world travelers, squatters, dreamers, and bums. All had remarkable stories to tell.

By the time he graduated college, he was living aboard his own tiny sailboat. Soon after graduation, he set sail for the Bahamas with a locker full of food and dreams … and $40 in his pocket.

His voyages took him up and down the Bahamas, up the east coast of the US to Chesapeake Bay, and across the Atlantic to Gibraltar. He ran aground, dealt with mechanical breakdowns, got seasick more than once, slept in a volcano, survived powerful storms, and returned to the land of clocks and calendars with what he’d gone in search of—stories of his own.

Today, as a speaker, trainer, and coach, he helps remarkable people tell remarkable stories—through writing, speaking, graphic design, video, technology, and music. If you want to say it, share it, or sell it, bring Dave Bricker your story; he’ll help you tell it.
