Here is a reflection from one of the participants, Michael Xavier Woon.

Why do we need to be mindful of ‘Stories’ in our lives? We are called to be whole by creating meaning out of the randomness of chaos and daily chunking of noise - often robbing us of our peace. Stories rejuvenate us to move directions, bridge fragmented worlds by gathering happy points towards self actualisation.

The Story of De La Salle as our inspiration is beautifully illustrated in the “7 Stages of Storytelling”.

  1. Breaking of Ritual
  2. Loop of Fear
  3. “What If” moment into Inspiration
  4. Innovation Momentum
  5. The Battle
  6. The Leap
  7. The Leader
