It is not the experiences that define people. It is the stories they wrap around the experiences and the collection of those stories that define them. Through Narrative Coaching people can learn to separate themselves from their stories long enough to examine what stories are serving and not serving them. By externalizing stories people can become more objective and realize they have the capability to change their attention, filters, and actions to obtain the narratives that will expand not contract their identity.
Narrative coaching is a process that can apply to organizations and individuals. It is designed for those who have become the subject of their stories feeling like they are being driven by circumstances rather than choice. Narrative is intended to assist organizations and individuals in imagining a greater story for themselves and helping them find creative ways to construct and step into them.
This certification is not for beginners. It is for coaches that are coaching at a mastery level and can skillfully maneuver through to get to a greater narrative without getting stuck in the existing story.
