    Frames of Knowing/Learning

    • Values (+ or -) are embedded in all stories
    • The present story is part “old story” and also the anticipated future (intentionality)
    • Personal story filtered through a cultural, global and universal lens
    Understanding the Present Story
    • Deconstruct the “old story” to discover the values that drive the story.
    • These values may be positive and/or negative
    • These values can be deeply embedded and we can identify them by what we do rather than what we say - implicit rather than explicit (Argyis & Schon, 1978)

    • New Story driven by values
    • Best of the Old Story and Emerging Story
