How to help your client find inner strength with the "who am I story"

Thursday, November 12, 2020, from 1:00pm - 2:30pm

Some of the current approaches to storytelling suggests templates, arcs, and other frameworks that may be technically accurate but only distract clients from diving deep. How can you support your clients through the emotional process of discovering meaningful stories that remind them of their integrity, ground them in their best self and help them find a stable “center” to weather these unprecedented levels of uncertainty? Learn a simple process for finding “who I am” stories with clients. The session will include a live demonstration so you can witness the process as Annette Simmons coaches a volunteer to find their own new story.

You will learn more about several critical elements for coaching through storytelling:

  • Creating a safe place
  • Four buckets full of stories
  • The power of showing faith in both client and process
  • Eliciting sensory information to keep it experiential
  • Responding with heartfelt appreciations.
