Public Narrative: The Story of Self

Created by Type:

Description: Participants will understand that the story of self communicates the key formative experiences that shaped you and “the values that are calling you to act.” A story of self is built around one or two key “choice points,” moments of large consequence in your life when you faced a challenge of some kind, made a choice based on core values, experienced a consequence, and learned something of basic importance – “a moral.”
