Pre-Con with Dr David Drake: Creating Moments of Meeting- An Experiential Introduction to Narrative Coaching

David DrakeAbout the Half-Day Pre-Conference Workshop: Wednesday 23rd November 2016 from 9-12 noon

We live and work in a time when the ability to connect this way and hear one another’s stories is more important than ever. This highly experiential session will show you how to get to the crux of issues more quickly. Your important conversations (coaching or otherwise) will become more spacious and more generative. As a result, you can bring forth more of the whole story and address more of what truly matters.
You will gain a basic understanding and experience of radical presence, attachment theory, relational meditation and zones of proximal development—four of the building blocks of narrative coaching. We will explore them using Daniel Stern’s “moments of meeting” as a frame for any conversation. This work has been used with thousands of people and dozens of organizations around the world to help shape culture and bring about change.

The key learning objectives are:

•    Learning what people most need from conversations at work
•    Understanding the essential elements for creating “moments of meeting” in any conversation
•    Understanding the four phases of narrative coaching to make the most of these moments
•    Experiencing three simple processes to deepen your capabilities to create these moments

This workshop is for: Practitioners who work in or with organizations to develop people
