Free download: Style Exercises - change narrative patterns and discover new, effective ways to express yourself

Jun 17, 2023

In this article I share a resource that offers a compelling exploration of the nature and mechanics of communication styles. I use it very often in my practice and I believe it has the potential to profoundly enrich our professional practice and also support personal development.

You can download a document detailing the Style Exercises here. This tool, grounded in the dynamics of narrative adaptation, offers us a structured pathway to analyze, understand, and modify our communication styles based on varying social and professional contexts.

Drawing on the metaphor of a journalist, who adjusts the tone and style of their narrative to resonate with their audience, this exercise nudges us to reconsider our own stylistic choices. It prompts us to break from our typical narrative patterns and discover new, effective ways to express ourselves, making our communication more versatile and impactful.

In a professional setting, the exercise serves as a powerful tool that we can employ not only for ourselves but also in our work with clients/patients. It promotes cognitive flexibility and emotional regulation, enhancing our capacity to engage diverse audiences, adapt our messages to different contexts, and foster deeper, more authentic connections.

On a personal level, it affords us the opportunity to reevaluate how we present our stories and experiences, paving the way for greater self-awareness and personal growth.

I invite you to delve into the Style Exercises. I believe you will find it to be an insightful addition to your practice, and a valuable aid in your ongoing journey of personal and professional development.
