I hope this finds you well! Welcome and thanks for joining. A great place to start today is a wonderful 5-minute read: https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelbarthur/2020/05/16/dont-let-the-virus-make-you-lose-your-story-so-says-eminent-career-scholar-mark-savickas/#2cbae61d49b1 The work I do with my practice centers around narrative…I don’t always use the “5 Questions” but they are a fun and helpful start. What were your answers?

Who did you admire (who was your role model) when you were young? (Character Actor) What’s your favorite TV show? (Agent directing yourself to a occupational stage) (Both of the above help answer the old P-E question of where would you fit in?) What’s your favorite story? (Introducing the idea of narrative, leading to authoring of your own life) What’s your favorite saying? (Asking, how do you instruct yourself? Leading to authoring how meet change and challenge.) What’s your earliest remembering? (This is important because it has stayed with you and now provides a perspective on your current situation.)

So what do you mean about these five questions to figure out a narrative.... narrative for what about your career or about something else?

It’s to focus narrative for career. Especially with the outside narrative of the world being so chaotic, it’s important to really keep ahold of yours.
