Cultures are built by people. People are driven by stories. Stories about who we are, about the other, about past, present and future. This continuous weaving of meaning is both beautiful and complex.
The problem starts when we loose sight of the beauty and start simplifying the complexity, when we try to get a grip by identifying with one single story, when we let ourselves be trapped in the mental matrix of right and wrong.
Knowing how to be with different stories is a capacity we sorely need to navigate these times. How do we reclaim our freedom to be more than just one story? Can we learn to embrace complexity and work with it?
I work with people of very different sectors and on every ‘level’: managers, collaborators and executives, and other relevant stakeholders.
Whenever it is possible and useful, I will help organisations to break unhelpful barriers and silo’s, so that they can go and find the opportunities hidden beyond hierarchies and categories.
