Raconteur Coaching Certification

This groundbreaking certification available only at Mentor Agility, exposes coaches to using stories in individual and group settings, unravels subconscious stories, accentuates creative thinking, and shifts mindsets. Trainees will learn to use myths, metaphors, and personal stories to help clients re-story their lives.

The Level 2 Raconteur Coaching Certification advances trainees coaching skills and use of storytelling. Just as many modern titles have had their stories adapted to different mediums in a process called transmedia storytelling, trainees learn to use the best storytelling method to use for the coaching environment (i.e. coaching in the office, outdoors, zoom) and the client profile (i.e. group, couples or individual coaching).
