It was totally FUN, but it also felt like I was discovering patterns in my work that were giving me some glimmers of insight into how I work and what kind of work I really enjoy

Thank you so much for the pocketful of stories session last night. I am still thinking about it this morning — you were able to draw out of me some ways of articulating those career values I have identified concretely and specifically in ways I don’t think I could have done on my own. I look forward to getting your notes and feedback from the session but am already off and running, thinking about how I might retool my standard cover letter and resume to make them show more of the person behind the job.

Starting with the character/values assessment was especially illuminating. Rather than fishing for examples from my resume (as has often been the case with interview prep), I felt that the stories emerged organically and authentically and—more importantly—they stuck! Throughout the process, your insightful follow-up questions allowed me to sift out overlooked yet valuable nuggets of experience, while linking together professional skills and creative pursuits in productive and unexpected ways. I will refer back to these portable “story seeds” often, and can already see them bearing new fruits.

There's a short prep for you before you do your session.

Then, you'll meet with us for one hour on zoom. You'll experience an hour jam-packed with story triggering activities, designed to elicit stories. As you begin sharing them, we will pepper you with connection questions, designed to identify broader themes and connections to your work values).

After the session, we'll let the dust settle for a couple days, and then we (your story listeners) will confer about the stories that are sticking in our minds.  We'll identify your 5 most powerful stories and send you a written report with ideas about how you can best use them (along with some story sparks  to help you build and find even more)!
It's just a 10 minute prep.
Take the Values in Action survey:
and put your results in the google doc link that I will send you in advance of your story listening session.
