Topic: The Role of Stories in Creating the Future

One of the most powerful tools a coach can develop is the ability to listen to the implicit story someone is telling about who they are and what is possible for the future.
The future is always and only a fiction. But the fiction we hold about the future shapes the present.
This session is designed to explore how can we help people analyze the stories they’re telling and to shape better ones.
