Course Details

Since the 8th Century BC, great stories have followed an archetypal narrative thread that chronicles a hero’s life’s path. Over the centuries that have followed, countless myths, folk tales, great novels, and, beginning in the last century, films, have followed the path of a Hero’s Journey®.

First codified in 1949 by Joseph Campbell, it is now recognized the world over as a template for a narrative structure that is relevant to, and reflected in, every culture and language. It also provides the structure of many of the greatest, most successful films of all time.

Dr. Julie Elledge, our Founder and a highly successful coach, educator, therapist, and businessperson, recognized that the structure that Campbell identified provides a roadmap for her clients’ life stories. With that revelation, Dr. Elledge created the “Hero’s Journey® Change Model,” a discipline that uses the Hero’s Journey® to help guide clients through life’s ebbs and challenges with the understanding that, even when confronted by seemingly insurmountable obstacles, their life stories can be directed towards a successful, highly satisfying outcome. We encourage you to explore the Hero’s Journey® Change Model course to learn more.

Her work championing the Hero’s Journey® Change Model has even been recognized by the education non-profit Joseph Campbell Foundation for its unique application of Campbell’s work towards improving people’s lives and careers.

Raconteur Coaching helps coaches understand the steps of the Hero’s Journey® to guide their clients through their personal and professional life stories, by identifying where they are in the journey so their expectations and opportunities can be given the perspective of an archetypal narrative structure that has guided individuals, cultures and civilizations for over 2500 years.

We invite you to explore this journey and how to engage your clients on the Hero’s path; an inspired direction of the transformation of their lives, to break through barriers and reach a life state that can be described as heroic, through the practice of Raconteur Coaching.
