What the world needs now. . .
The world is changing far faster than our organizations, our institutions and our professions. The stakes are higher than ever.
Moment Institute was launched to work with practitioners who are no longer willing to spend their precious life energy repainting faded carousal horses with this year’s trendy colors. Instead, they are committed to deepening their humanity and creating post-threshold lives in service of others.

So All Can Rise: A Conversation with
Dr David Drake as the Founder
The origins of Integrative Development, the connections to narrative coaching, the vision for the Institute
What if you distilled what you know to its essence and integrated it into who you are?
What if you saw choice and the potential for transformation in every moment?
What if you trusted that everything you needed was right in front of you?
What if you could connect with other practitioners who are on the same journey?
It is a call for eldering to honor ancient wisdom from those who came before us
— and hone new stories on behalf of those who will come after us.
It enables practitioners to integrate personal, spiritual, professional and social development into one practice. It enables them to get to the crux of issues in less time, work with greater agility in the moment, and empower their clients to carry the work forward. They use it to design programs and projects for themselves or their clients, and it frees them from the constraints of their silos so they can bring all of themselves to work.
Dr Drake used this framework in developing Narrative Coaching and every change, coaching and leadership program and project in the past 25 years. The ones that were the most engaged and successful had three elements in common:
- They drew from a number of disciplines (primarily OD, training and coaching)
- They were centered around what was emerging for the client not a fixed curriculum
- They freed the practitioners and clients to shift roles in real time to address real needs
Some organizational cases using ID
Converted a workshop underway on effective communication for a global IT team into a design lab so they could develop a new deployment strategy in dialogue with a positive deviant who reported success
Delivered leadership development program for over 150 public sector senior executives without a curriculum, centered around peer dialogue and coaching to address their major change issues
Co-created an iterative change process in which the leaders and teams in a health services agency concurrently developed themselves as coaches and transformed how they delivered services
- Integrated the narrative coaching approach and framework in most development programs, many internal processes and over 200 team-initiated projects in a major professional services firm
