Storytelling: Its Power and Place in Coaching

  • Discovery Learning 431 Spring Garden Street Greensboro, NC, 27401 United States (map)

Facilitators:  Sarah C Arnett and Joyce White

  • What is the power and place of storytelling in Coaching? 
  • How do we evoke the best stories from ourselves and our clients?
  • What are the effects?
  • How does current neuroscience support the relevance of storytelling in coaching?

Our May program will provide a forum to tell stories and to collectively answer these questions. Our facilitators will be TCC’s own Sarah Arnett and Joyce White.   For those attending, please bring something with you that you find inspirational.  Examples might be a photo, song, book, piece of sculpture, spiritual scripture/passage, etc.  We will use the memento to build upon for our May program.
