StoryJacking: Rewrite the Narrative
Have you ever been derailed listening to your client’s stories, flooded with the surface story, and missed the deeper, often hidden plot line that lies just below the surface? These underlying stories are the real issues that stop your clients from moving forward. These stories sabotage them and ultimately are the foundation to everything they believe they can or cannot accomplish.
Many coaches focus on “bottom lining” stories and miss the opportunity to help clients unpack some deep beliefs that hinder them. Our stories are the doorway into deeper awareness. Stories come on the spectrum of Snapshot Stories, “I am not good enough.” “I can’t handle this.” “No one cares what I have to say.” All the way to the deeply woven and unconsciously integrated stories that affect the way we look at the world and our place in it.
What would be possible for you and your clients if you could assess the difference between what is interesting and what is important in the stories that they are telling? What might transform in your client’s life if you could hold the space of curiosity with the internal narrative and help your client unpack the deeper issues at play?
