Most change makers are juggling being ‘in’ the system while trying to change the system – building spacecraft out of planes.
From the Blog on Stories
In all the communities we are a part of, we have ‘hero’ stories – Do we agree with what we are communicating – overtly and subtly?
As we become more digital and buy into the industrial mindset of organisations, of lifestyle, we become further disconnected from nature.
We need a prompt to tell interesting stories, but the prompts do not matter. They start the stories which enable reaching the trust point.
However sleek, thin, and dressy my socks were, they didn’t last a day when I wore them in my work boots. The same can be said about technology.
Stories impact how we experience change. And change itself is a story. And our stories are never finished, they are always ‘to be continued’.
Few of us walk out of Ikea having bought one of the rooms on display. But many of us have been inspired by something we saw. Ideas come to life in many different ways.
Change makers also know that the stories we tell change overtime or what we emphasise changes. Stories are about identity and so too is culture.
So when stories we tell make fun of someone’s ethnicity, gender, appearance, ability AND is tolerated, we communicate it is ok.
