Central to the mission of Coaching: Life Matters is training both lay and professional facilitators in the process of conducting a Core Story
interview. The Core Story process helps people become aware of their personal story and identify the origin and impact of their most influential beliefs. The Core Story process is a valuable tool in assisting individuals to identify previously unconscious, controlling beliefs involving security, esteem, and power that may be impeding the experience of well-being, the realization of optimum professional performance, and the establishment of relational integrity. The Core Story process has been effective in working with veterans experiencing PTSD, organizational
leaders, married couples, individuals in relational crisis, and prison inmates.
