This is the second of three instalments of my inspiring events series this month. It was a coaching network event by London Coaches. I was pleasantly surprised and wanted to share some of the ideas in the hope you would find it useful.
The trainer asked us to think about the stories we play out on our lives, the:
- Plot lines
He asked one powerful question: Would changing one of the above elements get you
For example, do you play the warrior at work but nothing works, everyone is screaming -a horror story. The trainer suggested instead using the character of jester to see if this changes up the energy and gets better outcomes, the story you want. That is slaying the dragon/reaching work goal via humour.
My take away was to be mindful of the narratives we have about ourselves and situations and not to get locked into stories that don’t service you- be flexible. You are the director.
