Behavioral leverage for real impact.
More than a communication company, Allegory is the embodiment of Christina Harbridge’s lifelong pursuit to understand and leverage human behavior. Utilizing physiology, storytelling (Storybeing™), somatic linguistics, and practical behavioral tools, Allegory helps leaders cut through the bull*&$# and harness the power of their authentic selves to achieve their biggest goals.
About Our Founder
Christina Harbridge is a behaviorist who trains and coaches individuals, teams and large groups to understand and leverage natural physiology when dealing with others who may or may not be rational.
Christina’s early experience as founder and CEO of a debt collection agency that collected debt through unorthodox tactics (such as being nice) shaped her worldview on workplace communication. Employees focused their interactions on filling a person’s need to feel understood through emotionally literate tactics, rather than focusing on trying to collect a debt that may not even have been owed. This values-based tactic, reinforced by bonuses paid on thank-you notes received, reinvigorated the industry by resulting in collections three times higher than the industry average. The proof was in the wedding invitations.
She is the author of Swayed: How to Communicate for Impact, which reached number one on Amazon’s ‘Conflict’ category list.
Christina is also a highly sought after keynote speaker.

Rigorous & Personal
Human behavior is an intricate system of levers and pulleys. Many coaches teach what worked for them. We study human function & design what works for others.
The human relationship is the true currency. We only work with people and missions we deeply care about.
We stay loyal to the outcome rather than focusing on tasks.
An overused word these days that is still at the core of everything we do. If it ain’t real, don’t do it. Fake is not a strategy.
Ineffective rote must end. Boring, drab, and controlling is exhausting.
I have never seen anyone help people learn how to bring others into their world like Christina Harbridge. She takes a very unique approach to communication through authentic and real story telling. She creates an environment for you to interact one on one as well as with groups to dig deep and bring your story to life in a way where people want to listen, connect and understand.
She changes people’s lives.“
