Some people are confused by the word ‘narrative.’ They may see it as just a fancy word for a story, or irrelevant to the serious business of running an organisation. So, as the owner of a business called Narrative Insights, a blog on the humble narrative is long overdue.

If your organisation is being constrained by negative narratives - what leaders mistakenly attribute to the ‘wrong culture’ - then you need to start with improving your awareness of the narratives in the system. From there it’s a simple case of working out what action you need to take to get ‘more positive narratives like these and less negative ones like those’.
Little tip though - involve the people in that process.
