David, on Life as Story

David, on Life as Story | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

“There’s a huge amount of uncertainty that accompanies this transition, as you try to figure out what that new story is. There were points at which I felt overwhelmed by that. It felt like things were moving too slowly. Or somebody had said ‘No’ to something. Or I bumped into somebody who tried to reinforce the old story. Or wanted me to strike that sort of Faustian bargain of ‘The new story is all well and good but if you just come back to what you used to do, then for a short period of time, while you’re in this transition phase, it’ll just make life easier.’ Points where I lost faith, my ability to tell myself the new story, and actually live it. It felt too hard. It felt like climbing up a very steep rock face. The next handhold wasn’t there. I couldn’t find the next handhold to easily grasp onto and let go of. I began to think maybe I was doing the wrong thing. But when I thought about that, really reflected on that, the pain of going forward was far less than the pain of going back. I knew I REALLY didn’t want to go back. I knew that something would happen in the moving forward.”

How to Tell Your 'Story of Self' | BillMoyers.com

How to Tell Your 'Story of Self' | BillMoyers.com | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Storytelling is one of the most powerful tools that organizers and movement builders have at their disposal -- and personal stories often have the most impact.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

Great article!

"Focus on one key story — one event or one place or one important relationship. Take some time to think about the elements of your story in the context of the challenge, choice and outcome. In this case, the outcome might also be the thing you learned, in addition to what actually happened.

Remember, the purpose of telling your story of self is to begin to create common ground with your audience by sharing a story that reflects the values that brought you to work on your given issue, and where those values come from."

 

These tips for constructing your "story of self" can be used as an insightful coaching tool. Finding your "story of self" through this frame can help you:

 

- get a better understanding of your core values,

- identify your main challenges (the challenges you faced and the ones you're about to face in the future),

-  dig deeper on the specific choices you made or the options you have now

- learn from the outcomes you got and plan for the one's you want to get.

Storyboard-Based Coaching | ReadyToManage

Storyboard-Based Coaching | ReadyToManage | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

There are a number of models and frameworks that can be used to assist in conducting a coaching session. These range from simple to very complex and tend to be general in nature and non-specific in application. As a result, a more practical model is often needed, especially when it comes to new skills or behavior development, and a storyboard-based approach often works well.
