The Voyage Mapping: Individual Coaching activity from RSVP Design Ltd is a set of resources that allows individuals to work with a powerful metaphor for exploring learning from the past, and preparing for future challenges
The Individual Coaching Version of Voyage Mapping is a versatile coaching and personal development activity with applications in action planning and team development. The activity uses visual metaphors of a journey to generate discussion about past experiences, and how to use them for future planning and goal setting.
The activity contains resources that enable participants to review tasks, projects, and processes they have undertaken and identify successes and failures. They then explore the critical incidents and draw from those key learning points which they believe will have value in the future. This reflective process helps to ensure that future mistakes can be avoided, problems and pitfalls can be anticipated and costly repetition or reworking minimised.

Many individuals use the metaphor of a journey to describe their experiences;
Voyage Mapping encourages participants to tell their stories of the journey they have been on, individually and together, through the course of a learning process, a project or a business challenge.
The activity uses the idea of an old-fashioned sea voyage to represent the way in which explorers brought back with them the accounts of the events and incidents which shaped their voyage and the ‘tales’ of what they discovered. These stories include new knowledge and skills that were acquired, dangers faced and overcome and accounts of the feelings, relationships and memories which they shared.
As these stories are remembered and explored, learning emerges that can then be used and applied in planning for future voyages of discovery. The activity is equally effective when used to reflect on an individual, personal or professional journey, or the journey of a group, team or organisation.
