Solving Problems With Narrative Intelligence

Solving Problems With Narrative Intelligence | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
How narrative intelligence can help everyone design solutions and generate useful data.

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, though I cannot always follow all the fine-splits of the very similar approaches but all these in this attached article sounds to me very much like so called solution-focused approach (which has a root to the early '80s into Milwaukee in SFTC of Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg)... and it wouldn't bother me if somebody says that OK, however these tiny-tiny details are different... SF has the same basic idea (like on the picture) that if we are speaking about the problems (on a "problem- language") we will know lots about the problem and if we are starting to speak about the solution instead (on a "solution-language") we will know lots about the solutions... there are such ideas still that "knowing the root/cause of the problem will not necessarily lead to the solutions" or if the solution - why not through story-telling approaches - is approached/achieved, the problem(s) might simply disappear (I would emphasise here that SF people are not problem-phobic at all, only they see more good to turn more - whenever it is possible - towards the goals and solutions than towards (backwards...) to the problems...

 

One more thing and Karen will like it (I suppose)... creating (I weight my word "creating", it was so used by Chris Iveson in a latest Budapest workshop, who is a very eminent player on the SF field, author, practitioner (therapy + coaching) for 25 years) the future might give us (if properly done and I'm telling you, it's not that simple, you can have an idea from their books about this what he has written with his two London based colleagues) an "experience" about the future. If somebody would ask: What?! Experience? About the future? We could only have experiences about the past, couldn't we?! I would ask (as Chris did it) whether your "sure" past experiences are something constant in the time? Did not happen to you sometimes that past experiences are changing even signs?! (from bad to good and vice versa...) If you already had this experience you could deduce from it that we also creating our past as well... we are story teller backwards as well... well, what do you think?

 

I like the question at the beginning... it is an excellent SF question, I like it very much and I would use it (with the hopeful permission of the author...): “What would ‘happily ever after' look like to you if we made this happen?”

Here's a handy article and tool that any organization can use. It's all about how to use narrative elements and design thinking to solve problems.


While the post is written on how nonprofits can address social problems, the insights and tools shared here apply to us all.


The tool is free to download, which is great! The article shares the story about why and how it was created, along with results people have experienced. Way cool.


Enjoy the article and use the tool.

Before implementing any change programs, it is very important for a systemic business coach to see the  structures and mental models which are  ruling the organization .It’s those mental models which create the system structure and as such patterns and behaviors.

Such a simple template that can help provide an outline for your story.
