What do Narrative Coaches Do?

What do Narrative Coaches Do? | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Narrative coaching is a body of knowledge that draws on millennia of ancient wisdom, a century of social science thinking, and breakthroughs in domains like the neurosciences to create an approach to development fitting for our times. It is a mindful, experiential, and holistic approach to helping people shift their stories about themselves, about others, and about life itself in order to create results that matter to them. Narrative coaches take a more “decentered” position in their role, a more nondirective approach to the coaching process, and a more contextual view of coachees’ identity, development and behavior.

Everything you need to know about Interview - UCLA Film School professor Howard Suber explains how you can be a better storyteller
Ariana Amorim's insight:

This is about how to be a better storyteller and how we can use narrative to improve our lives.

 

Powerful question here:

 

Do you think that storytelling is always after the fact, that it’s how we interpret our lives, or do you think there’s something to learn from stories and the principles of dramatic structure that’s forward-looking, that we can use to guide our lives?

What Your 'Life Story' Really Says About You | Huffington Post

What Your 'Life Story' Really Says About You | Huffington Post | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"We all have one particularly important story that we tell ourselves, about ourselves: our "life story," which helps us to organize our experiences and give us a sense of self, even dictating our behavior in some cases. We're constantly updating, amending and adding to this story as we encounter new experiences.

 

By understanding how we create these stories and how they are structured, we can alter our own stories and rewrite our own scripts in ways that improve our lives."

What I like about this article is that it points out that our stories are always open to interpretation and adaption.  They're never really final if you don't want them to be.  It's good to be reminded of that.

Debra Manchester's curator insight, November 19, 2013 8:22 AM

Are you the hero or heroine in your story or are you a victim?

5 Unhealthy Narratives That Will Sabotage Your Life

5 Unhealthy Narratives That Will Sabotage Your Life | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Picture this.
You’re meeting someone for the first time. You only have a few minutes to make an impression. What would you say about yourself? What details would you include? What details would you leave out?

Within every one of us, there is an invisible force that guides us through our lives. All of our decisions and behaviors are driven by the stories we tell about ourselves. It is our personal story—our narrative.

Despite the large impact our narrative has on the way we live our lives, seldom do we stop and take note of the messages we are transmitting to others about ourselves. This lack of awareness is dangerous, especially because many of us have unconsciously adopted narratives that are unhealthy and counterproductive to our overall goals and well being.
