This week I'm joined by Nadine Araksi, an expert on stories and how they can facilitate incredible change. Nadine talks about the client work that she does as a story coach and how story has been the unifying thread throughout her life and career. We get into how story is a tool to help people connect with purpose and intent, how it facilitated inclusion and brings people together. Nadine talks about one of her favourite tools for using and applying story and how central emotions are in story to make sense of our experiences, thoughts and decisions. Nadine tells us about a difficult change experience that she led a team through and how story was an important part of helping people move through the change towards a common future.

Nadine’s current focus is on mental and physical well-being and helping women avoid burnout through mind-body connection and story exploration. Nadine hopes to share her personal experiences of moving from darkness to light with courage, kindness, and gratitude with those who are ready to listen and use them as a catapult for their own journeys.
