Willing to Learn More: Storytelling-Responsive Consulting through the Six-Part-Story Method


This article emerges from the assumption that, as transformative learners, practitioners can use storytelling to work through challenging experiences. We used the 6-Part-Story Method (6PSM) to aid in the context of reflective and reflexive practice. We explore one student’s experience in a master’s-level course that introduces, through experiential learning, process consulting to students. By using storytelling to explore her work with a client, the practitioner shares how the particular method enabled her to look at her own practice. We outline how the 6PSM as a structured storytelling process enables student consultants to reflexively understand the clients they work with and enable them to gain greater professional and personal self-development.
