On 11 June, Eli Fen posted this comment about our storytelling session:
'This looks like a valuable and interesting session which, sadly, I cannot attend. In my absence can I say that I've used storytelling when facilitating management development programmes, and encouraged managers to be sensitive to the stories they choose to recite, as the stories they decide to tell give listeners an insight into the story teller per se, AND effect the dominant organisational culture.
Best wishes for a successful event.'
Where does the story of our AWG session of 19 June really begin? Is it relevant to explore the backstory and antecedents of this theme? What thoughts do you have about storytelling and metaphor in organisations that you'd like to contribute to this theme?
