Narrative Coaching can awaken people to their preferred story of self. Stories are at the core of who we are and define our place in the world. Our identities are formed by the stories we tell and how we and others respond to them. They continually script our past, present and future realities. Narrative coaching allows clients to recognize the power in these tales, reconfigure key elements so they align with who they desire to become without letting go of their sense of belonging.

As one of 127 chapters in 67 countries, ICF Minnesota presents an opportunity for ICF coaches to connect to the entire global community. ICF has membership in over 120 countries and many members work independently from their peers. As a member of a global community ICF coaches have the opportunity to both focus on what is happening locally as well as connect with global perspectives and resources. The strength and resources available to members of ICF are incredibly valuable and utilizing research performed by the ICF and PWC, we will look to explore how ICF coaches can increase their activity locally while expanding their reach globally.

Starting at a very early age Matt has been fascinated by how people connect. Growing up immersed in sub-cultures of action sports and music of southern California, diversity has always been a standard in Matt's environment. After serving in the U.S. military, he started his first business at the age of 26. Continuing his career in the fields of Customer Care, Healthcare Administration, and Association Management, Matt has had the opportunity to travel extensively meeting people originating from all cultures and backgrounds.
