The School

In our daily and professional life there is a need for logical arguments and lawful formulations. Many choices are made according to this logic; What is considered approved and appreciated behavior is defined by it and ones credibility mostly depends on it. The School of Narrative Leadership will complement this need for logic with a Narrative Perspective on daily and professional life experiences and the effect of those experiences  on our meaning and sense making.

The School of Narrative Leadership offers learnings to improve your skills to create a safe and inclusive space for all to speak up in. The foundation of our learnings are narrative theory, presencing techniques and exploration of experiences and meaning. We give insight in how you construct your narratives – especially around safety, inclusiveness and speaking up. We look at the effect of these narratives on how you perceive yourself , how you look at the world around you and how it effects your behavior and the way you communicate.

In a lighthearted way you improve your ability and bravery to take space and give voice, and to open up the (work)space for safety, inclusion and for all voices.

Composing a life involves a continual reinterpretation of the past and a re-imagening of the future to give meaning tot he present (Bateson, 1989). This proces is  key for the the School of Narrative Leadership. 

The School designes courses and learnings for academics, people who work in an applied science environment, teachers, therapists and young professionals.
