We walk around everyday with pre-existing stories that act as filters to what we read, see, hear and smell. We use what we know to make sense of a thing and pass a judgement on whether or not it fits within the narrative we choose to believe. We seek meaning, and much of that meaning is based on what we already know and accept to be true. In this session, participants will learn to use story-based strategy in their organizational analysis to think through and develop appropriate messages that will ring with their audiences. Story-based strategy & analysis helps us understand and more effectively frame narratives that are acceptable and believable to them. It also helps us think about how to challenge and contest narratives that work against our own strategies. This is an introduction to my course on this subject.

    • How did this happen? “The idyllic partnership of 17th Century European Pilgrims and New England Indians sharing a celebratory meal appears to be less than 120 years-old. And it was only after the First World War that a version of such a PuritanIndian partnership took hold in elementary schools across the American landscape. We can thank the invention of textbooks and their mass purchase by public schools for embedding this "Thanksgiving" image in our modern minds.” - Richard Greener http://www.huffingtonpost.com/richard-greener/the-true-story-of-thanksg_b_788436.html
