WORKSHEET: DEVELOPING YOUR STORY OF SELF

Before you decide what part of your story to tell, think about these questions:

1. Why am I called to leadership in 99Rise? What is my purpose in calling on others to join me in action? What will I be calling on them to do?

2. What values move me to act?

3. What stories can I tell from my own life about specific people or events that would show (rather than tell) how I learned or acted on those values?

What are the experiences in my life that have shaped the values that call me to leadership with 99Rise?

Think about the challenge, choice and outcome in your story. The outcome might be what you learned, in addition to what happened. Powerful stories leave your listeners with images in their minds that shape their understanding of you and your calling. Remember, articulating the decisions you make in the face of challenges ultimately communicates your values.
