Life today is complex! You deal with many forces that impact your life. When you take action, you consider social expectations and connections; financial challenges and opportunities; political questions and competitions; and personal and professional relationships. In any moment, you are forced to make choices about what’s true, what you need to do, and how you can engage with others. In such a complex world, your old stories are not robust enough to represent your day-to-day experience. You need a new narrative to capture the realities you face and to frame your expectations and assumptions.

Sometimes, your narrative locks you, your team, organization, or community into patterns that belong to the past more than to an emerging future. On the other hand, powerful narrative can inspire, motivate, and celebrate the complexity that threatens to overwhelm you every day. Writing powerful narrative requires you to step into the complexity of your life. Compelling narrative describes that complexity and its impact on the patterns that shape how you think and act.

This AA Lab invites you weave your own stories into a narrative that reflects a unique and engaging tapestry:

  • See and understand the complexity in your experience in ways that inform action
  • Leverage the complexity in your stories to open a world of opportunity and possibility
  • Weave your stories together to create compelling narrative

At the close of the session, you will have a new story and be able to guide others as they generate their own.

This lab is one in a series of six. To register for the series, click here.
