A Future of We, and Less of Me - Innovating Corporate Social Partnerships
Through discussing the founding of The Best of You, an initiative about appreciation, this session focuses on how appreciative storytelling is crucial for building a compassionate and cohesive community. Community after all is only possible because of the mutual obligations between citizens. Sharing our stories and listening closely to the stories of others and appreciating the circumstances and lives of each other strengthen those mutual obligations, and in turn enrich our community bonds.
In so doing, the session aims to discuss the problems inherent in concepts of the self-managing enterprising individual, promoted and prevalent across business and management thinking i.e. “me” and shifts the focus onto a broader collective i.e. “we”.
