Workshop IV: Discovering and Using a Narrative Mindset: Rethinking Narrative’s Place in Your Work, School, or Community
Friday, April 16, 2021, 12:00-2:00 PM (Hawaii)
3:00-5:00 PM (Pacific) / 5:00-7:00 PM (Central) / 6:00-8:00 PM (Eastern)
As a teller, writer, educator, or community organizer, are you using narrative to its full potential? Although we know humans are “wired for stories” (Cron, 2012), can those wires hang loose and remain idle? In this workshop, we explore how to fire up your thinking and adapt a “narrative mindset” (Cordi, 2019).” We develop a narrative framework to re-see story in our lives and our work. The process draws on Dweck’s (2007) idea of “growth mindset” but focuses and uses narrative lenses in constructing meaning. In this practical online session, you will have the tools to begin using story in new ways, and the outcomes will charge you and re-energize your story readiness. Re-see, revision, and refine you and your work using narrative mindset practices. Your new story awaits.
