Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is Story of Me?
The Story of Me (SOM) is a life coaching programme, which helps women to be the best versions of themselves. The programme uses proven techniques and structured facilitation. It draws from Positive Psychology, Narrative Therapy and Applied Neuroscience.
Who is it for?
Though beneficial for everyone, SOM is especially ideal for those who are currently exploring options, are feeling stuck or are simply looking for new inspiration.
Why Story of Me?
Over the course of many roles, responsibilities, and experiences, our inner self gets buried under the labels given to us by the others. This workshop helps us to re-polish our dreams, to rediscover our mojo and to ensure that we emerge with workable goals.
What if I don’t want to share my Story?
We honour your safe inner world. Every person has a “inner self” and a “safe boundary” which she wants to and needs to preserve in order to function efficiently. In keeping with that, we have designed the workshop such that the inner boundary is preserved but the group energy lifts everyone.
What is the practical utility of the workshop?
First, the participants understand what exactly is meant by the “stories in which we live” by exploring the one that comes up for each of the participants.
Secondly, we exit with workable goals after we have understood our story.
Thirdly, we use this opportunity to understand our own story in the context of others, get ideas and encouragement and also in turn, support others.
Fourth, we create a community that is enabling and never imposing, with regular check-ins
It is entirely voluntary but the structure is there to help participants.
Creating community …what do you mean?
A support structure is an integral part of the workshop. We meet every 3 months to do check-ins on our goals. Goals can change. That is normal. But we are always there to support what is emerging.
Do I have to be a writer?
Story of me is not a story writing or a memoir writing workshop. It uses the construct/pattern of a story to get the participants to realize their inner story and the nuances of it. What is supporting them and what is getting in the way.
Do I have to prepare?
No preparation is needed. Just participate with an open mind.
