Your life is a journey. Your journey is your story. When you accept the power to change your story, you change the arc of that journey. That’s how you can best assume the power to change your life.”

Are you ready for what’s next in Coaching?
COACHING IS CHANGING.
We believe your coaching future will be formed and advanced through mastery of storytelling. Lives and stories will be defined by what happened before and after COVID. Your ability to help them manage or re-story their lives from this unique point in time can advance their lives and your practice for years to come.
Story is the future of coaching.
Coaching has the unique ability to help client’s move forward in their lives. When we realize that we have the ability to write our own stories, rather than live out the ones handed down to us, the world becomes alive with possibility.
How do we write a new story? By asking powerful questions. By defining who we want to be, where we want to go, and our motives and vehicles for change. The coaching process is no different than story, with powerful questions being the coaches greatest currency.
At Mentor Agility, story is at the heart of everything we do, so much so that our founder, Julie Elledge, created a novel coaching structure based off of storytelling techniques and the Hero’s Journey®.
She is the leading voice in storytelling and coaching and regularly contributes her insight and voice to the coaching community. You can find some of her featured articles and words of wisdom below.
