David Drake: Founder & CEO of The Moment Institute & Narrative Coaching

Coaches on Zoom Drinking Coffee

In this episode of Coaches on Zoom Drinking Coffee, Coaching.com CEO Alex Pascal sits down with Dr. David Drake, the Founder of The Moment Institute in Portland, Oregon and a Thought Leader for the Institute of Coaching at Harvard University. Dr. David Drake has used his work to support the transformation of coaching initiatives in 70 organizations, including Dropbox, Google, Logitech, Nike, PWC, and is the creator, author, and teacher of narrative coaching. During this conversation, Alex asks David to demonstrate the concept of Moments of Time in Coaching and the connection it has between happiness and freedom for clients. He talks about the pressures clients face, and the deliberate lack of goal-based thinking narrative coaching focuses on. By giving clients a safe and plentiful space to discuss their narratives and trajectories, David explores how his work centers on giving clients the ability to be true to themselves. Examining that space, Alex and David discuss the profound nature of silence and the possibilities that come with making new choices that incorporate silence instead of being drowned out by the noise of the same decisions every day. With an emphasis on self-regulation, they highlight the value of narrative coaching being based on the rejection of conventional coaching norms.  Through the prioritization of personal development, David worked with larger technology companies on the patterns found within their team dynamics and how deconstructing them piece by piece is integral to their reformation. Silence, or waiting for a response, is essential for that reconfiguration of relationships and relatability.In this context, David explains the readiness of clients implementing change being dependent on the work they are willing to do being primarily outside of coaching sessions. Channeling the experience of a client through their scope and daily life, Alex and David discuss the importance of impact and drive of coaches by illustrating the value in the work clients have ahead of them.  Resources: David Drake: https://www.themomentinstitute.com/SocialsLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidbdrake/e/Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5eiBlgWW77IFwMnWujEiPgTwitter: https://twitter.com/NarrativeCoachBooksNarrative Coaching: The Definitive Guide to Bringing New Stories to LifeNarrative coaching: Bringing our new stories to life

David Drake shares practices to return to our sense of common good and common humanity

Better World Leaders

Welcome to the fifth season of Better World Leaders. Throughout this season we'll be focusing on the theme of conditions, and considering what conditions do we need to nurture for leaders to co-create a better world.I'm delighted and honoured to bring you the first conversation of the season with a man who has devoted his life to creating conditions for people to discover themselves, transition liminal spaces and learn in ways which are much more conducive to life now (and in the world of the future) than our conventional approaches to learning. Welcome to the conversation with David Drake.David is the pioneer of two bodies of work - Narrative Coaching and Integrative Development - which share the same philosophical and pedagogical roots and are mutually generative. I've been aware of David's work in Narrative Coaching for around 5 years since being deeply moved by one of his coaching exercises in a training program. I have gravitated more and more to his work - culminating in enrolling in two of his developmental communities at the beginning of this year.This episode was recorded in December 2021 prior to me joining those spaces. I have been even more inspired now that I am in the programs. I feel deeply privileged to have spent more time with David, and I look forward to doing so for what I hope will be years to come. David is a wonderful activator of powerful learning experiences. His work steeped in a brilliant combination of research and evidence-based frameworks, and applied through constant practice in each individual's context.Here's a review of the key messages from this episode:Systems & Cultures- Most of the drivers of behaviour in a workplace have less to do with the people, and more to do with the cultures & systems in which they are working- The systemic and complex nature of the needs we face requires us to work across multiple disciplines and at multiple levels so we don't keep sending changed people back into unchanged environments.- We need to help people place their individual stories and journey within a broader and more inclusive context so they can make sense and meaning in new ways- Developing people is less about teaching with better curricula and more about facilitating with better conversationsHonouring differences- There is a need to create new, larger narratives that will keep us from driving each other further apart- We've over-emphasised our differences and lost much of our sense of the common good and our common humanity- The business models for many of the platforms is based on enraging people, exacerbating differences, and narrowing our focus.Respecting journeys- We need to honour & respect people for who and how they are as the only place to begin- My value is less about telling others what I know and more about coming alongside people and the journey they are already on to help them grow- The big work we need to do is found in from the unknown & the uncertain- The fundamental question in our work is, "What does this person need most right now?"Learning- The need is for more safe places for practice based learning rather than more content- The resolution that someone is seeking is already present- We have to let go of 'we have to study before we do' to free ourselves to learn and adapt faster- We need to free people up for serious play. To play with serious things.Follow David via the links below;www.themomentinstitute.com

Lap 1: FDNY Battalion Chief David Drake

Habitual Routine

Welcome back to Season 3 of Habitual Routine! For this season, Coach Annick and Coach Roberto will be focusing on telling stories of runners who will be joining us for the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon. For our first episode of Season 3, we want to honor and memorialize the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. We speak with David Drake, a Battalion Chief for the FDNY, and hear his story and journey of running as he prepares for the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon. In fall 2001, David had just gotten married and had a newborn daughter. He was working as a firefighter, training for his FDNY lieutenant test that October. But then September 11th occurred. His lieutenant test was postponed until the following February, and he was called in to work as a member of the World Trade Center Recovery Team for the entire month of November. For 12 hours every day that month, he dug up and cleared rubble where the towers once stood, finding bodies and much more. The 2021 TCS New York City Marathon will be David’s third New York City Marathon and we discuss training, his time in the FDNY, and why New York is the best marathon in the world.
