Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Narrative and Passion | Coaching Leaders |

Narrative and passion are becoming increasingly central to performance at all levels – individual, institution and ecosystem. But are they completely separate topics or are they related in some way?

David Hain's insight:

Brilliant stuff from the great John Hagel. Hope the rest of the world catches up soon...

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, October 21, 2013 12:01 PM

Research show that a very large precentage of the global workforce is unengaged and struggle to find a deeper meaning in what they do.

John suggests that narratives can create a very different world, one where pressure evolves from a source of stress to a source of excitement, calling us to achieve even more of our potential, both as individuals and collectively.

The same happens when someone’s individual passion overtakes a conversation or decision. What seems to be the unfortunate goal is for one person’s passion to be imposed on others. It is passion domination!


The discussion on passion in organizations gets very interesting as we dig into it. There are issues to be highlighted and resolved.


One key question is:  Can passion be transferred?


The question centers on two dimensions:


1) Personal passion

2) Organization passion
