Using Thresholds as Accelerated Development Methods in Coaching

Dr. David Drake will share from his pioneering work on adult development through a narrative lens. In particular, he will focus on: 

  • Using the principles of attachment theory in developing adults who can sustain their results
  • Understanding how to increase your client’s self-regulation as the cornerstone of development
  • Understanding how to leverage neural resonance and dissonance in support of development
  • Why mindfulness needs to be put in motion if clients are to do more than just cope
  • Why thresholds are often more important and effective than goals in supporting change
  • Understanding how to use Vygotsky’s work on zones of proximal development in coaching


This provocative session will offer you a behind the scenes look at some of the core discoveries behind David’s work with narrative coaching. He is using them in starting his new institute to study and teach practitioners how to facilitate real change in real time. The session will challenge some of your assumptions about coaching and free you to work more openly and directly with your clients. He will share case stories from his work around the world to give you tangible examples of how this work is used with clients and participants. Come join us to find out more!
