About Moment Institute

Our Mission & Vision

We help practitioners and teams design new narratives that free them to live and work with more compassion, more clarity and more courage in any moment. 

Our vision is to be the world’s leading resource for facilitating real change in real time and, in so doing, plant the seeds for a more sustainable future.

Moment Institute has grown from its roots as a boutique consulting firm and the Center for Narrative Coaching. It is the culmination of David's lifetime work as the founder of narrative coaching, and the springboard to his next generation of work in conjunction with a growing global community.

In addition to our ongoing Threshold Retreats, the Institute will launch some exciting new programs and community memberships in September 2019. These are for practitioners who coach and want to deepen their ability to use transformative narrative practices to address the key issues of our time.

The Institute is also working with other pioneers seeking to develop people in new ways using our work. Early projects include:

  • A school district in Australia reinventing how children learn at school

  • A government in Australia developing the next generation of indigenous leaders

  • A start-up in France building an AI-based coaching system

While best known as the founder of Narrative Coaching, I have studied human dynamics for over 30 years. I launched Moment Institute to bring this interdisciplinary approach to development and change to the world at a time when we need new narratives and new ways of working that transcend traditional boundaries.

We are calling for a return to more natural human rhythms and the rise of practitioners who can walk alongside people in new and powerful ways. Our commitment can be seen in the lotus as our logo. We are grounded in the mud of our shared humanity (what is), yet reach for the light of our deepest hopes (what if).
