Storytelling and the understanding of a client’s old and new narrative is important in coaching; as important for the coach as it is for the client. When the idea of writing a book comes up, especially if a professional is not a natural writer, there is the presentation of confusion. Why would I do this, and how come the idea won’t go away? When called to write a book, the best way to eliminate the overwhelm and confusion is to drill down into the objectives of the book.
Short interactive exercises will be done to help the participant understand the methodology either for themselves and their book idea, or for their coaching client.
This teaching will cover:
- How to identify the objectives of book.
- What is the deeper narrative?
- Is there a hook or trademarked idea?
- Who is the Reader Avatar of the book?
