I just heard Dr. David Drake, founder of Center for Narrative Coaching and Leadership, speak in a webinar for the World Business and Executive Coach Summit. I’d like to share a meaningful exercise he shared with us. He had us close our eyes and think of something in our lives we wish were different. Then he slowing asked us the following questions and please pause between each and you might write down the answers:
What are you doing now about this situation?
What are the results of what you are doing?
Are these what you were hoping for?
What are these telling you?
What will you do differently to get more of what you want?
