A storytelling workshop on tensions and emotions in self-organized work.
From school on we learn that conflict is bad. We are trained to avoid difficult conversations. In organizational life this translates into a pervasive culture of not telling each other what we really think. The problem is that collaborative and creative work depends on perspectives smashing into each other. How can we get comfortable with real conflicts and overcome “organizational defensiveness” (Chris Argyris)? In this workshop we will jointly elicit candid stories of enthusiasm, anxiety, trust and intimidation. A touching learning journey.
