3 Day Course in Strategic Narrative Embodiment Techniques  

Can these coaching & facilitation tools work for you?

Tools that are:

1.    Strongly structured and yet invite play.
2.    Focused on the needs of the client and yet can open up possibilities for new ideas

We call them SNETs: Strategic Narrative, Embodiment Techniques

Strategic so that it helps with planning of next steps, alignment of behaviour and language with values and the focusing of attention.

Narrative so that it is based on story structures that repeat themselves again and again and because it works with the participants’ stories.

Using Embodiment so that participants can get outside their heads using pictures, objects or body positions as metaphors to unlock encyclopaedias of wisdom.

You can find more details and see feedback from previous delegates on the Playing Mantis website:
