Narrative Story Board
Who are you? Tell me your story. If your life was a story, would it be interesting? How YOU define your story affects your experience of life. One technique that film producers use to outline great stories is a technique called storyboarding. This technique is also a useful tool for you to think about the story of your life career. The tool below is meant to give students a template to reflect on some key questions in one’s personal/professional narrative using the story board method. Don’t worry, you don’t need to illustrate it; written reflection is fine. There is a 6-panel and a 9-panel tool below. See which one you prefer or try them both!
Download and answer the question prompts for each panel. Assembling the responses from each panel will give you the raw materials to construct your own personal narrative.
Leadership Narrative (9 Panel) – Download and answer the question prompts for each panel. Assembling the responses from each panel will give you the raw materials to construct your own personal narrative.
