"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.
