Chris Templeton began developing the Oh The Stories We Tell model in 2003. Driven by a strong desire to more fully understand the dynamics of his personal and professional relationships, he has been exploring and developing the model ever since.
Initially inspired by Eckhart Tolle's, The Power Of Now, Chris began to understand how his self-talk drove him crazy in some parts of his life. In others there was no poor story and as a result no real craziness.
The Power Of Now
by Eckhart Tolle
After watching Jill Bolte-Taylor's amazing TED Talk in 2008 the model simply fell together and it all just made sense. Chris has been working to develop the model and put it into writing both in a book, illustrated piece and video ever since.
My Stroke Of Insight
Chris is inspired in his work, whether it be his podcast appearances, consulting with individuals and organizations or simply building his speaking engagements. His excitement for how the model can serve others is contagious.
This inspiration is driven by how universally the model applies to personal and interpersonal situations throughout our days, along with a deep desire to share our role in creating stories that either serve us or don't, and how to move more consistently to authentic stories that serve us for life.
