storytelling enhances narrative design coaching
Think of Narrative Design Coaching as constructing your current life story in four acts. Act One explains what's going on in your life and what you desire to overcome and achieve. Act Two explores various options, strategies, goals, and aspirations. Act Three experiments with what resonated most with you during your discovery process in Act One and Act Two, that is, you experiment and move forward while adjusting your strategies on a need basis as your desires and dreams may shift on your journey. Act Four sustains your new chapter in your life as you have shifted your mindset and behavior to maintain your new focus. Finally, the upward spiral continues like a bird circling up the tree and you repeat the process to start another new chapter in your life. Your life is like a book with many chapters to be written. Enjoy your own unique story. The world needs you!
