The Beliefs at the Heart of Naridus’ Narrative and Identity Development Approaches to Living, Working, Leading, and Thriving.
- Individuals live in stories and when they creatively participate in these stories, they are productively and passionately engaged with their lives.
- A full and fulfilling Personal Narrative needs to encompass both the continuity and change in a person’s life.
- Individuals create Personal Narratives from a shared or unshared (as in the case of discrimination) stock of stories and beliefs common to our culture and era—a part of life that we do not choose.
- The drama in a Personal Narrative comes from appreciating all of life’s joys and its sadness.
- People want their Personal Narratives to be connected with something greater than themselves as individuals. Work is a big part of a Personal Narrative.
- People go to work to exercise skills they enjoy and to create an identity of which they can be proud.
