Join us with part 2 of the new way of thinking about the world that has impacted Nelson Mandela and Peter Block. This transformative thinking is called “narrative work”. It opens a new window to see that there are lots of other possibilities than that “story” that you’ve already been told and sold.
Listen and find out how top men and women leaders have transformed their lives, and businesses, simply by changing their story. Sabrina Braham and her guest Chené Swart show you how every conversation you enter creates with it the possibility of transformation and better outcomes.
Chené Swart, is the author of the book, Re-authoring the World: The Narrative Lens and Practices for organisations, communities and individuals. She is a contributing author on Coaching from a Dialogic OD paradigm in the ground breaking organizational handbook published by Berrett-Koehler in San Francisco in 2015 called Dialogic Organization Development and Change: Theory and Practice. She lives in South Africa where she writes and works as an executive coach, consultant and trainer specializing in re-authoring practices.
“ Each of us has a free will at our core, so like it or not, others will choose to change more readily from the example set by our own transformation than by any demand we make of them.”
— Peter Block
